Broiled trout, sauteed snap peas, caprese salad | Dinner with Dave and Nicole

Broiled trout, sauteed snap peas, caprese salad

Quick and easy weeknight dinner (we made it on Wednesday or so). Steelhead trout is a close cousin of salmon, but much less expensive (and has a subtler flavor). I followed Bittman’s guidelines for broiling the fish, and Dave sauteed the snap peas in olive oil with a dash of Cajun seasoning. The caprese has cherry tomatoes, cut in half.

This is probably the best-argued anti-piracy article I’ve ever read. One highlight:

Many in your generation are willing to pay a little extra to buy “fair trade” coffee that insures the workers that harvested the coffee were paid fairly.  Many in your generation will pay a little more to buy clothing and shoes from manufacturers that  certify they don’t use  sweatshops.  Many in your generation pressured Apple to examine working conditions at Foxconn in China.  Your generation is largely responsible for the recent cultural changes that has given more equality to same sex couples.  On nearly every count your generation is much more ethical and fair than my generation.   Except for one thing.  Artist rights.
