Good morning to all our friends and clients at the Stockton Market.  We hope that everyone is getting ready to celebrate another beautiful day with their Valentine. We know that there are people who made big fancy dinner plans that are more expensive than they would like. Movie plans where you would sit in the theater for hours and not even make the slightest eye contact with your sweetheart.  What we are saying, is that if you want to make this Valentines Day truly a special one why not stay home and prepare a romantic dinner for you and your honey.  We would like to help you on this by giving you a better option.  Why not treat your significant other to a fabulous lobster tail dinner. We are doing a fifteen percent discount on six-ounce South African Tales, which we will come with cooking instructions. Must order in advance. If there are any questions you have, please give us a call, and we will do all that we can to help.  


Now let us get back on track.  From three to five will be Metro's dollar oyster happy hour featuring East Point Oysters coming from New Jersey.  We also will be showing off some fresh fish filets for those who would like to prepare a nice meal for themselves, so don't forget to check out these awesome recipes created by "THE MASTERFUL" Mark Drabich.   If there is something that you would like us to bring down from Metropolitan Seafood in Lebanon, then give us a call the day before you would want to pick up and we will bring it down for you.  As always, from your boys at Metro, we wish for only good vibes to come your way.  See you at the Market.

Oven Roasted Lobster tails (The easiest recipe)

This recipe is for 1 pound of lobster tails so that can be 2-8 ounce lobster tails or 4-4ounce tails. All lobster tails come frozen so the first thing we have to do is thaw them.

Thaw tails in the plastic wrap that they came in for 45 minutes in cool water.  Cut the top shell of tails with kitchen shears to last knuckle.  Crack open the tail and piggyback the meat on top of the shell.
Glaze the tails (recipe below) in layers as if you were brushing it with a wax coating.  Sprinkle with paprika and herbs.  Pour ½ cup of white wine in the bottom of the baking dish.  While preheating your oven to 425 degrees leave the tails on the counter to come to room temp.
Bake tails for 20 to 25 minutes depending on size.  Cut into one of the tails.   When you no longer see a translucent color the dish is complete.
 

Glaze

Melt the butter on low heat and try to keep it slightly thicker before adding the rest of the ingredients.  Remember you're not cooking the glaze, just incorporating the ingredients for one pound of lobster tails

1 stick of butter
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
The juice of one lemon
This is the foundation of your glaze
Feel free to add your own twist
Maybe some garlic, Dijon mustard, honey or something spicy.   go nuts!   They're your tails.
Enjoy

Recipe2
Pan Seared Red Snapper with Warm Zucchini and Baby Spinach Salad with a Salsa Verde Dressing
Serves 4
This is by far not the easiest recipe I ever created for you little chef but I promise that if you take this culinary leap of faith, you will delectably advance to a new little chef that your friends and family cannot ignore.  I can hear it now "Is Jim prowling around that kitchen with a new catlike swagger?" "Uh, Yeah, have you tasted this Snapper, it's a real soul punch."
Ingredients

For the Fish and Salad
4 Red Snapper fillets skin on and scaled 6 to 8 ounces each; Black Sea Bass works great also.
Salt and Pepper
2 tablespoons of fresh chopped flat leaf parsley
2 tablespoons of olive oil divided
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 pound of Zucchini diced
2 handfuls of baby spinach about 3½ ounces
1 cup frozen peas thawed
Lemon wedges for garnish
For the Salsa Verde Dressing
4 tablespoons each of fresh chopped basil leaves, flat leaf parsley, mint and oregano
½ cup of olive oil
1 tablespoon of capers rinsed and drained
2 anchovy fillets packed in oil roughly chopped

How it's done
To make the dressing, place the fresh herbs, olive oil, capers and anchovies in a food processor and "whizz" until well combined and smooth; adjust seasoning if necessary but it should be just fine based on the salt in the capers and anchovies.
Next season the Snapper fillets with the parsley, salt and pepper.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat until the oil is shimmering and almost ready to start smoking.
Place the fish in the skillet flesh side down, and then add the butter to the pan.  Let the fillets cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until just opaque when fork tested.  Transfer the fillets to a warm platter and tent with foil to keep warm; wipe out the skillet with paper towels.
Heat the remaining olive oil in the same skillet over medium high heat and when hot sauté the diced Zucchini for 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp tender.  Add the spinach and peas to the skillet and cook for 1 minute.  Take the skillet off the heat and stir in all but 1 tablespoon of the dressing; season to taste with salt and pepper.
To serve, divide the Zucchini among 4 plates and top each plate with a Snapper fillet.
Drizzle the remaining dressing over the fish and garnish with lemon wedges.  Now enjoy your new catlike swagger but try to stop licking your paws in the kitchen, it's just not very sanitary.
