OPAKAPAKA WITH BUTTER SAUCE AND ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

 OPAKAPAKA WITH ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS
DINNER AT HOME

It is amazing how shopping at Costco can influence what we eat.  I have not bought 2 lbs of Brussels Sprouts in two years and then Costco packages them up and I buy 2 lbs in one day.  What the heck do you do with two pounds of these things I thought.  Well you better find a recipe that the entire family will like.  That I did......Simply cut the sprouts in half and tossed in bowl with lots of garlic, shallots, pancetta, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Cooked in oven at 450 degrees for around 20 minutes.  Waited until they got crunchy dark.  This totally takes away any bitterness and leaves a sweet tasting sprout that we all loved.  Served with some fresh Opakapaka (Snapper) that I simply seasoned and grilled.  Finished the Opakapaka off in the oven for 10 minutes and topped it with butter, white wine and whipping cream sauce.  This was a fantastic dinner.  The Opakapaka cooked up perfectly and was restaurant quality.
