Baked Seafood Casserole with pita chip topping

Nothing says New England like a delicious baked haddock dish. This dish was a favorite at Regina's restaurant which was a neighborhood staple back in the 90's.  Customer's were always asking for the recipe so they could recreate it for their own families. Though the restaurant closed many years ago, we still get requests for this scrumptious meal!  

Prep time: 20 minutes
Bake/broil time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4


Ingredients:
2 cups crushed Regenie's Multigrain Pita Chips
2 cups crushed Ritz or Golden Round crackers
1/2 fresh orange (seedless), squeezed
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
3 teaspoons walnuts, finely chopped
4 slices American cheese
16 ounces of haddock, cod, scrod or scallops


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place pita chips and crackers in food processor or blender and grind. Pour crumbs into a medium sized bowl. Mix in juice from the orange and 2 tablespoons of butter. Add parsley and walnuts. Mix all ingredients well.


Pour balance of butter into the bottom of 4 small casserole dishes about a tablespoon in each.   Clean, pat dry and cut fish into 4/ 4 ounce pieces.  Salt and pepper both sides.  Place the filets of fish into each casserole and roll in the butter. Place one piece of cheese over fish and cover with crumb topping, about 2 tablespoons each. Bake for 20 minutes and then broil for the last minute or until golden brown. Serve with lemon and fresh parsley as a garnish

Zesty Guacamole

Zesty Guacamole

 

One of the best dips to go with any chip is guacamole. The creamy, salty, spiciness is the perfect juxtaposition to the crunch of the chip. We have tried many recipes for guacamole over the years but found that the most basic ones; the ones with the simplest, freshest ingredients, are always the ones that receive accolades at any gathering.


The best place to gather the necessities to create your guacamole is local farms.  We have five within a six miles radius, however, since most of you are not located in the boondocks, your local farmer's markets would be the perfect stand-in.


Tomatoes, bright red and warm, picked from the vine hours ago. Onions that still display the dirt from which they were plucked. Cilantro so fragrant that you can smell it from a mile away. Limes where their size certainly does not reflect the heavy weight of juice they are hiding. And the most important component, the avocados. A deep shade of green, with a firm outside, but a slight give to reveal how perfectly ripe they are.  These ingredients - straight from the source is what makes an amazing guacamole.
 

Prep time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients:
3 ripe avocados
1 tomato, seeded (remove the seeds)
1 small white onion
3 limes
1/4 cup of cilantro
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Cut and skin avocados. Mash in a bowl using a whisk (we find that easier to control) or a fork of you don't have one. Leave some whole pieces of avocado to give it more texture. Dice up the tomato and onion. Add to the avocado. Chop the cilantro coarsely.  Add to the bowl.  Roll the limes between your hand a hard surface - this helps to loosen the pulp and juice. Slice in half and squeeze juice into the bowl. Add the salt and pepper. Lightly combine all the ingredients. Serve with your favorite Regenie's Pita or Falafel chips and enjoy!
