or at least the SD card...I found a pic of a success and one of a failure.  First the success:  braised red cabbage and roasted asparagus - they both tasted great but I particularly like how they look on the plate.  We served them with that seared duck breast previously seen on these pages:

and now the failure - it all sounded so good in my head but it didn't work.&nbsp; Big piece of amberjack, oiled, salted and peppered, roasted in the oven.&nbsp; I made a topping of shallots, garlic,&nbsp;kalamata olive, tomato and shrimp, a little white wine and lemon.&nbsp; But they didn't complement each other at all.&nbsp; I ended up leaving most of the fish and mixing the topping with the pilaf.&nbsp; (That thing that looks like a roach is an olive.)

When I get a piece of fish I'm not sure what to do with I google. The halibut experiment was a complete success. Oh well at least your pics came out nice.

Sorry to hear about the amberjack disaster! I really like amberjack!

Tiny asparagus are the ones Spousal likes.I never have done olives and fish. Or olives and anything that Spousal will eat. He's no fun.

can work really well together - in a Provencal type of topping - tomatoes, garlic, olives.&nbsp; But the amberjack just wasn't the fish for it. I expect there was just too darn much stuff in there - shrimp - and I forgot to mention almonds...what was I thinking!?

but I can see how you thought it would be great! It sounds great, in theory!

We do lots of fish Provencale/Veracruz style. Good stuff. I'll remember that about the amberjack, though.
