(that's Merrimac making her blog debut such a least until we fill the food dish, then she could care less about us !)

This meal was one of the our favorites!  This meal has been in our rotation for years but i must say I went above and beyond this time and it paid off.  First thing I noticed was the stuffing... I used all the heals I had saved from Mother Oven's Spelt Bread as well as a handful of old slices of Aroostook Wheat which made for a very wholesome based that I toasted in the oven @ 300˚ tossed lightly with canola oil and a smattering of sage and rosemary saved from the herb garden.  In a sauce pan I melted a half stick of butter as I pureed two bulbs of garlic, a redwing onion, a large stuttgarter onion, a handful of clams and a tad of seaweed.   Then scoop the puree and into the melt butter on medium heat.  After the mixture begins to slightly brown i added 2 cups of water and simmered for 10 -15 minutes as the bread toasted.  I then pulsed the bread cubes in the food processor and added to the simmered mixture.... cover let stand for 10 minutes.  Butter large glass pan and place 2# Fresh Haddock on in the pan... topp with the stuffing mixture and bake @ 400˚ for 30 minutes or so... I always put the tray onto the top rack for the last five minutes to brown up the stuffing a bit... an tadda ! A true New England meal paired with some straight up roasted potatoes and a bit of sea salt !
