One of the few dishes from our original opening menu, in 1998, has stood the test of time, has returned again. For how long? Who knows. We had it on our menu for 12 straight years before I decided I was sick of cooking it and that we could use the menu space for different dishes changing them frequently.
I came up with this dish in response to the somewhat bullshit statement that seafood and dairy should never be paired together. I can most certainly agree that you need to be careful with what you pair together, a potent cheese has no place with most seafood. However, who could ever say that smoked salmon and cream cheese aren’t wonderful together. Shrimp and Parmesan or feta, a good tuna melt with mild cheddar, anchovies with Parmesan to name a few other obvious pairings.
So here it is Cornmeal Crusted Fried Oysters with Goat Cheese Fondue and Apple – Bacon Salsa.
