Romano Mashed Potatoes:

3 large red potatoes, chopped into large chunks

Asparagus:

1 pound asparagus

1 lemon, juiced

Olive oil, for sauteing

Hot pepper sauce, to taste (recommended: Tabasco)

1/3 cup bread crumbs

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the juice and zest of 1 lemon. Place the scrod fillets in the bowl and allow the fish to marinate for approximately 20 minutes. In a medium sized saute pan, sear the scrod fillets over medium heat until both sides are evenly brown. Remove the fillets from the pan and set aside.
  2. Serve with Romano Mashed Potatoes, Fresh Vegetables with Crispy Bread Crumbs, and Sauteed Asparagus.

Romano Mashed Potatoes:

  1. In a large pot, combine the potatoes and just enough water to cover them. Boil the potatoes over medium-high heat until the water comes to a rolling boil. Continue boiling the potatoes until they are fork tender. Drain the water from the pot and add milk to desired creaminess, cheese, parsley and salt and pepper to the potatoes. Mash the ingredients all together with a hand masher until they are all thoroughly combined. Serve with the fish and vegetables.

Asparagus:

  1. In a medium sized saute pan, sear the asparagus spears with olive oil and lemon juice. Cook the asparagus until it is tender. Add salt and pepper, to taste.

Mixed Vegetables with Crispy Breadcrumbs:

  1. In a medium-sized pan, cook the bacon strips until they are crispy. Remove the slices from the pan and crumble the pieces. Reserve the pan of bacon grease and add in the diced red pepper, green pepper, onion, parsley, and garlic. Saute the vegetables in the bacon grease with hot pepper sauce until they are tender. Add the bread crumbs to the pan and thoroughly combine all of the ingredients.
