Now...if only I can find that hat!:)lol An awesome friend of mine made it for me...he gave it me as a present for helping him out with guitars and gear while I was working at Manny's Music on 48th St in NYC...He made all kinds of leather goods and hats and belts  and such for all kinds of musicians and rock stars...I typically do not wear hats very much...but this one was very cool...and reminded me of the one I wore when I played "Oliver Twist" in a school play when I was ten years old!:) I'll save that story for another blog post!:)LOL

Baccala Marechiara

Baccala Marechiara...
This is a dish my Nonna used to always make...and my Mother also.
It is a fish stew with Cod, San Marzano peeled plum tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, large green olives, a touch of oregano, black pepper and salt...

Baccala is always associated with Christmas Eve...but I like to enjoy it at any time of year...and seeing as it is Ash Wednesday and I wanted to make some fish...I thought it would be a great night to make this awesome dish.

I use green olives with the pits but you can use black olives and capers too if you like.
Also...when making it throughout the year...I prefer to use fresh cod instead of the traditional salted cod that I use on Christmas Eve...I find it a bit less "fishy" and it saves a lot of time also... 

Marechiara means "sea light" :)
When you see this name on a menu it usually means a light tomato sauce, in most cases paired with fish.
