BREAKFAST BY THE BEACH

Geoffrey's in Malibu had some pretty good crab cakes benedict (I think I went 2 years ago though...not sure if it's still the same menu). Nice outdoor seating area..ocean view. Saw dolphins...pretty cool.

Fried Rosemary?

Has anyone ever heard of frying rosemary or other herbs as an accompaniment/garnish to meat? Is it actually possible to batter/deep fry any herbs w/o burning?

I love panko-coated, broiled shrimp, but can I do it with fish?

I know McCormick & Schmicks uses panko on their fish. I've seen them do the simple flour, egg wash/milk, and panko procedure...I'm sure your recipe would work... Also, for pan-frying, I know some people have used a mixture of ground/chopped nuts and panko vs. using all panko.

Making Sushi Rolls

Does anyone ever do this at home? I was thinking of trying and had a couple questions.
1) how long do you have to wait for the rice to cool (I'm guessing you have to do this so as not to cook thru the seaweed) before you can spread it over the seaweed.
2) where can you get soy paper?

Help for Cooking Salmon

interesting idea... I'll keep that in mind. I usually use panko for salmon or crab cakes so I imagine it would be pretty good.

Help for Cooking Salmon

Typically when I cook small portion size fillets I dredge in a little flour, dust off excess, sear the outsides in a hot pan, and finish in the oven. So I was wondering...what do you in the event of using a whole full size (computer keyboard length) fillet. I don't think I can sear the outsides and keep it in one piece. Any suggestions on an oven only cooking process (that'd preferably still have a little crust on the outside)? Broiler? Never really did this big of a piece before, so I'm not too sure about timing/temperature. Still looking for that medium done-ness. Since it won't touch a skillet or anything, is there any need to do the flour thing? Thanks!

Korean BBQ place

I wanted to take my girlfriend's parents who are from Colorado for Korean BBQ...I don't go too much myself but thought it'd be kind of different for them. Any suggestions?
