Comfort Food

I was home on sick leave from a bad cold. But I still managed to whip up a meal for The Husband for dinner. I wasted half a bottle of white wine; it was good for cooking but not for drinking. Not all wines get better with age. So with that half bottle, I made White Wine Sutchi Fillet baked with tomatoes, fennel and olives, served with Spaghetti Aglio Olio.

I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome, especially since my taste buds were numbed by the flu bug. Initially I thought I had put too much wine because even after 10 minutes in the oven, the smell of alcohol was still very strong. By the time the fish was done, the sauce that was left was sweet and flavorful.
