Errol Flynn's Baked Fish Havanaise

"It isn't what they say about you, it's what they whisper."

Mm. That was GOOD and DID cure my malaise for a few minutes. Easy to prepare, looked great on the plate and had all the cats on the island trotting up the ladder and poking their heads through the door to see what was cooking.

I am even considering making it again tonight for my dinner date. Yes. Forget about the "six months off men". The Black Panther has tired of prowling around the undergrowth and can't wait until the weekend arrives. He wants to see me TONIGHT. He is bringing pudding. Hmmm. And a toothbrush I hope...

There follows Mr Flynn's "Favourite Menu" - now THAT is what I call a Silver Screen Supper.

Dinner De Luxe
Blinis with Caviar and Sour Cream
Turtle Soup with Sherry and Wafers
Baked Fish Havanaise
Quail on Toast with Fresh Mushrooms
French Fried Asparagus, Artichoke Saute
Endive and Beet Salad
Crepes Suzette
Demi-tasse Napoleon Brandy

Not sure I'll be able to rustle up all that tonight in my boat kitchen on a table top oven that has to be turned on with a pair of pliers, but the Baked Fish Havanaise - THAT I can do! I might even be able do it freestyle without looking at the recipe. This will give the impression that I am a cook who knows what she is doing. Ha ha! How far from the truth!

Wow! That is a very starry menu! If Errol was alive today, he would certainly be on Celebrity Masterchef, if not given his very own series...
