cooking a fresh ham like pernil

bake in a pan with about 2 cups of water and cover with foil.
generally 20 minutes per pound. use the broth to make gravy. If you keep it covered it will not dry out. season with salt-pepper and you could make slits in the fatty side and insert garlic cloves. by the way ,cook with the fat side up.

Whats the best fish for a first time fish eater?

i was raised by a catholic fish eating family on fridays and i hated fish until i moved to the ncarolina coast at 18. i grew to like shrimp and most recently oysters but they have to be steamed til they are almost shriveled up. i just tried red snapper on the grill with a little butter and lemon--then pesto when it is done. not fishy at all but expensive. the salmon is way too strong. grouper is also a good mild fish. also expensive. a red snapper and a grouper was 54.00 here.
