SUNDAY DINNER AT HOME: Pan-fried Whole Whiting with Mustard Greens and Sweet Plantains. Whole whiting has a single central bone, making it one of the easiest fish to eat.
PAN FRIED IN OLIVE OIL: Whole King Whiting were $3.49 a pound last Sunday at H Mart, 25 Lafayette Ave. in Englewood, where we had the fish cleaned and the heads removed. My wife seasoned them and pan fried them in olive oil, above and below.
YELLOWFIN TUNA: My wife made a tangy salad from 2 cans of Genova-brand Yellowfin Tuna in Olive Oil, adding fresh lemon juice, Dijon mustard, onion, garlic, celery and dried basil (6 7-ounce cans were $11.99 at Costco Wholesale in Teterboro).
