thanks. They were all really delicious, and the wife basically ate 3 bowls of that soup (the bowls pictured were very small for those worrying).

the skate was supposed to be this from my Saturday morning paper.

mine suffered from not separating the fillet from the bone. And from consuming a bottle of wine before cooking and plating. Details.

Skate doesn't have bones. That is actually cartilage which separates the top fillet from the bottom. teacha.gif

Then I strained it, put it in the fridge, and when cold I added one extra large egg. Then I strained that into the bottom of soup bowls, covered and cooked in a waterbath in the oven until just set. From there they can sit a bit. The hot soup warms them up.

Thanks. When you say cooked down the bacon and onion without browning... Cook the onions to soft? Temp/time? My skills is teh rusty.

Cook the bacon in a touch of oil until it gives off fat on medium, then add sliced onions and cook on low for half an hour or so. It doesn't matter if it browns a little, but you want it to kind of cook down and release a lot of flavor which goes into the milk and cream.

If I was walking past the presentation above, I would have a hard time stopping myself from slapping the part hanging over the table and turning the whole slab into a sushi catapult.

I would just move the candles so I don't burn my hands or get the sushi warm.
