Michelle Esteban is an incredibly talented news anchor/reporter – often referred to as one of the pit bulls at our station for her investigative work. She’s also a compassionate anchor/reporter, someone you want on your side when a difficult or tragic story has to be told. More than that, she’s become a treasured friend and colleague to me.
I first discovered Michelle’s love for cooking through her KOMO FACEBOOK FAN PAGE where gourmet, homemade creations often make it onto her My Favorite Things, or MFT, list each Friday! Mouthwatering pictures included:
Here’s a little taste: Strawberry Shortcake w/ Strawberry Compote, Chantilly Cream and Candied Lemon Peel!
The list brightens my day each Friday!
Of course, the news hound in me wanted to dig a little deeper and find out more about how my mentor spends her time in the kitchen, and what she loves to cook up. Don’t miss her recipe for her Halibut With Cherry Tomatoes Baked in Foil (RECIPE BELOW)
1 lb Halibut (skin off and cut in serving sizes)
Coarse Sea Salt
1/2 lb cherry tomatoes halved
Drizzle best quality olive oil
1T chopped fresh dill
Preheat 400 degree oven
Lay fish in piece of foil w 4 inches of foil on each side – sprinkle w salt, pepper, good dose of olive oil. Scatter tomatoes on 2 sides of fish fillet and sprinkle w minced dill.
Put another piece of foil over top and seal edges -bake about 20 minutes or until fish hits 140 degrees. Goes nice w quinoa on the side.
