Christmas Dish of the Day
This recipe from Scott Conant of Food Network is pretty involved, but it gets a 100% grade for migraine compliance, so I thought it would be good to share: Spaghetti with Seafood. I'm not one to cook with a lot of squid and sea urchin, even with an awesome international farmer's market that I could walk to from my house, but you can always substitute something you prefer. However, I urge you to experiment with mussels. There is some cleaning, de-bearding, and sorting out the dead ones involved, but all you do to cook them is steam them in chicken stock for a few minutes (I haven't tried this, but I'm betting that even plain water works) and eat them when they open up. There's a bit of work involved in eating them, but if you throw them on pasta, they taste great and you look like a cooking genius when you serve it.
