Can this be done with a slab of, say, halibut or cod?

Ooops! Just reread the recipe and, of course, the recipe can be used with many different types of fish. My bad.

I roasted two whole local red snappers over the weekend for my family. Everyone was super impressed and I did almost nothing. The fish did all the work for me. I will try this one out too.

Can you explain more about reusing the olive oil? I don’t pour it back into the container obviously…. But what? Glass jar on counter? In fridge? How long is it good for?

ALISON, G*DAMNIT YOU GOT EFFING **MARRIED**??????? Honey, some of us saw the tiny little thank-you, way back in your book, maybe thanking "BHB"? Was it, & I was like, "maybe that's her partner." And then I thought, "HE BETTER TREAT HER RIGHT, DAMNIT."...

Then you mentioned some break-up stuff, some time to heal, time to grow... then a few tiny glimpses of another dude... tall, he was spotted here & there in some vids/instagram... & I thought, "damnit he better be good to her"...

...& then the podcast w/ Dax & you mentioned having a boyfriend & I was like, "oh good - I hope it's this same guy & things are going strong & all is well, and she is being LOVED & CHERISHED & CHAMPIONED by someone w/ a good, decent heart. With maturity. With integrity.

...And then, out of nowhere, I guess THAT guys' gone and... ya got an engagement ring on holding blueberries? There's a people article w/ some dude named Max?... And some shots on Instagram of you and a frankly BEAUTIFUL MAN w/ dark hair .... & Then a suggestion and a poloroid that seems to say that... you actually ......got married??? Girl I feel like one of my most beloved girlfriends from high-school or college finally found the love she genuinely deserved... & it's hard not to feel really personal about it!

Happiness - true happiness - is so moving. When it happens to anyone, but esp. when it happens to someone you care about. Someone you're rooting for. And have been rooting for, for a long time. I can't tell you how happy I am for you, & how much I'm rooting for a deep, sweet life with this man. Really - you might not realize how many of us really want your happiness. You put a lot of good into the world - a lot of sass, but a ton of good as well! - & I just wish you every healthiness, every sweet thing that a good love has to offer.
