Barcelona’s Swordfish a la Plancha dish is ‘clean and simple’

A few weeks ago, a friend and I had dinner at Barcelona restaurant in Inman Park. We tried a variety of their tapas and I particularly enjoyed the Swordfish a la Plancha – a small slice of swordfish in a tangy salsa verde. We liked it so much, we sopped up all the extra salsa with whatever bread we had left. Do you think they would be kind enough to share the recipe? Thank you so much for this column – and for getting me the cilantro dressing recipe from Rreal Taco in Midtown!It was absolutely delicious. — Keri Lubell, Decatur

We are always glad when a restaurant can share a recipe for our loyal readers. Barcelona Wine Bar serves a wide range of tapas in seasonal rotation. Fish served a La Plancha with Salsa Verde is a menu staple and the recipe works with any white fish such as swordfish or the cod you see in the photo. The recipe was created by executive chef James Burge. When supplying the recipe, he wrote, “At Barcelona we pride ourselves in preparing tapas with bold flavors and letting the ingredients speak for themselves. The fish a la plancha dish is clean and simple—just fresh fish and herbs with a lot of flavor—it doesn’t get much simpler than that.”

That's why I had held off buying a spiralizer - one of those slicers that cuts vegetables into noodle shapes. Until now. After all, you can get a similar, ribbonlike effect using a vegetable...

Move along, kombucha. You're old news, kefir. The next big fermented food craze is . . . kimchi?  If Western consumers on a health kick can be convinced to drink yeasty, probiotic tea and tart, cultured yogurt, then why wouldn't they be up for spicy pickled cabbage fermented with garlic for months on end?  Well, that's the goal of South Korean...

Yoplait learns to manufacture authenticity to go with its yogurt

A few years ago, as the Yogurt Wars were heating up and Greek invaders were storming the grocery aisles, executives at Yoplait, one of the nation’s largest yogurt companies, began arguing among themselves. Thick, sour Greek yogurts with names like Chobani, Fage and Oikos were surging in popularity. Sales of runny, sugary Yoplait were oozing off...
