Chicory Salad with Banded Rudderfish "Tonnato"

This healthy fish recipe from chef Mike Lata is made with banded rudderfish, which is an amberjack--a species coveted in sushi restaurants, where it's known by its Japanese name, hamachi. Lata's love affair with the Italian dish vitello tonnato (cold sliced veal with tuna sauce) started with a glorious one he had in Milan. He's found the sauce to be a great way to use the scraps that result from butchering whole fish. He serves thicker versions over cold poached meats and thinner ones like this over vegetables and salads.

Irish Pork Roast with Roasted Root Vegetables

1
In this easy one-pan dinner, boneless pork loin roast is cooked over a bed of carrots and parsnips for an all-in-one dish that makes an impressive centerpiece for a holiday meal or Sunday dinner. Choose free-range heritage pork if you can--its flavor really shines with no more seasoning than a bit of thyme and a little sea salt. If you'd like, dress up the meal with a traditional Irish apple condiment--Ploughmans chutney or Bramley applesauce, which you can find in specialty stores and online.
