By Eileen Goldfinger, food editor @Blogfinger

3/4 pound of cod fillets, cut in four inch pieces, or any other white mild fish

6 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 medium carrot, peeled, small diced

1 celery stalk, small diced

1 shallot, small diced

parsley, fresh, several sprigs

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/2 cup unsalted chicken broth

2 tablespoons of margarine (or butter)

14 ounces canned plum or cherry tomatoes with puree

Preheat broiler.

In a 10 inch cast iron pan heat margarine and add carrots, celery, shallot, garlic, parsley and salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat until the vegetables begin to soften, approximately 10 minutes. Stir ingredients in the pan, and if they seem to be sticking to the pan add a little of the chicken broth.

Next add the tomatoes with the puree, the chicken broth, and white wine. Stir and break up the tomatoes into bite size pieces. Cook until the sauce begins to thicken. Add fish fillets and shrimp. Cook them in the sauce for 3 minutes. 

Turn the fish over and place the pan on a rack 8 inches from the broiler element. Cook for 5 minutes. Serve with a crispy French or Italian bread.

Serves 2

This wading shore bird video was was obtained by Eileen Goldfinger in Jan 2017 in Ft. Myers, in our backyard.  It is 3-4.5 feet in height with a wingspan of 5.5-6.6 feet. Yet it only weighs 5-6 pounds due to its hollow bones.  In flight it can cruise at 20-30 mph.

The Great Blue can be found year round over most of the U.S. and Central America. They hunt alone but nest in colonies. They are often seen by Wesley Lake or Fletcher Lake. They are very good fishermen.

In the video you can see how still they stand before they make a move.  Don’t stop watching until you get to the end.   Please put the music on first, and then the video.

Ocean Grove artist Jack Green IV painted his impression of the Carousel Building posted on Blogfinger in 2014. At the bottom of this article you will find a link about Jack’s painting. *

Blogfinger reporter Stephen Goldfinger wandered over to the recently renovated Carousel Building where he found skateboarders airborn as a new purpose has been found for that historic beaux arts building.

Stephen says, ” Last night (Saturday  11/12/16)) – kids skateboarding at the carousel – it has a big speaker system that was blasting rock music while they skated.”

The Carousel Building was built with the Casino in 1932, designed by Warren and Wetmore, the beaux art architects who also were responsible for Grand Central Station in NYC.  The carousel, #87 built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company functioned for 50 years before being taken down.

We have been to farmers markets there in recent times, and some theatrical events have been presented  as well.  But the Asbury developers probably have some long-term plans for the building.  Meanwhile, go and watch those daring young men on their flying machines.
