Meal: Haddock with onions, watercress and mace

Back Story: Tonight, everyone is watching the season three premiere of Downton Abbey, the Masterpiece Classics hit soap opera. We wanted to cook a meal worthy of the “upstairs” crowd that would visit The Crawley’s. This dish was perfect. Easy, but with rich flavors and deeply satisfying.

Method: Use your MF secret weapon mandolin to slice an onion into thin rings. Sauté in butter for 5 minutes. Add a teaspoon of ground mace and sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Add a bunch of washed watercress or sorrel, if you can find it, and cook until wilted. Meanwhile, place fish on an oiled pan. Add salt and pepper. Top with onion, mace, and watercress mixture. Spot some butter on top, cover with foil and cook for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve with lemon and enjoy. It’s like nothing I’ve ever tasted. Scrumptious.
