Time to fire up the barbecue!

What a beautiful day in the sunny southwest of France!  Cool, misty morning, then sunny with clear skies, low humidity and not a cloud in the sky.  What else is there to do but to fire up the Weber kettle?  Locally, zuchini has been coming on strong for a few weeks, eggplants and peppers have just begun to arrive. On the fish monger’s stall, a beautiful clear-eye maigre, a firm-fleshed white fish from the Bay of Biscay.  Not exactly sure what maigre is called in English – Alain Davidson, in his seminal book “North Atlantic Seafood”, calls it Channel Bass or drum fish, neither of which have I ever heard.  In any event, it grilled up perfectly.  I served this with some leftover nettle pistou that I had in the freezer from a previous meal.  Yum!
