>Fried Land Fish and Rice with Partridge

>Yes, you heard me right.

Maybe it’s the fact that I’m feeling overwhelmed by school or maybe it’s the fact that fall has clearly announced itself, but I’ve found myself daydreaming about Spain a lot lately. Unfortunately, instead of jumping on a plane headed for Espana, I pulled out My Kitchen in Spain hoping to try a few new recipes. The first one I decided on is a vegetarian recipe that is made during Lent: “Rice with Partridge.” The partridge is that there bulb of garlic in the middle, though i like to imagine Danny Partridge jumping out of the middle of a pile o’ rice.
(This is also the latest addition to my Copco collection.)

In order to keep with the vegetarian meat theme, I thought a side order of fried land fish would go with the rice swimmingly. Apparently, land fish is is eggplant (I can’t quite fathom how eggplant was associated with fish, but there it is…). It is simply an eggplant cut into french fry shaped pieces and coated in a flour, cumin, salt, and pepper and deep fried. I don’t typically like eggplant, so deep frying it made sense. The flavor turned out great but the texture is…well…Josh says they’re like “really soft french fries,” which he said sounded bad and amended to wilted. I think the texture was more insubstantial.

    >That a fabulous idea for eggplant! I like eggplant, but I don’t love it. But I do love anything deep fried! I’ll give that a try….and um, I’m still waiting for Danny Partridge to jump out. Although, that might be a little scary.
