Hello Joan,

Pistachio Parmesan Crusted Trout From Bonefish Grill 

Lemon Butter Sauce:
2/3 cup white wine 
1/4 cup lemon juice 
3/4 cup heavy cream 
1 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon white pepper 
1 tablespoon sugar 
1 pound unsalted butter, cut into pieces 

For The Trout:
2 cups Vigo Italian breadcrumbs 
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese 
1/2 cup crushed pistachio nuts 
1/2 cup pasteurized eggs 
1/2 cup buttermilk 
7 butterflied trout 
1 1/2 ounces butter or more for sauteeing 

To Serve:
2 artichoke hearts, quartered and sauteed in butter and wine per serving 
Julienned fresh basil for garnish 

To Make The Lemon Butter Sauce:
Combine white wine and lemon juice in a saucepan. Let simmer until reduced 
in volume by half. Add heavy cream and let simmer until thick but not brown. 
Add salt, white pepper and sugar. Whisk in 1 pound of cold butter pieces 
slowly over low to medium heat. 

Combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan and pistachio nuts. Pour into shallow plate. 
In a shallow pan, mix eggs and buttermilk. Lay trout meat, flesh side down, 
into the wet mixture, then press into the breadcrumb mixture. 

In a saute pan heat butter in pan, when hot add trout breading side down. 
Drop trout away from you to prevent splashing yourself with hot butter. 
Shake pan so the breading does not stick to the pan. Cook on breading 
side down for about 2 minutes. 

Flip and finish cooking in a 350 F oven for about 5 minutes depending on 
the thickness of the trout. 

To Serve:
Place artichoke hearts and basil on the trout and drizzle with lemon butter

Hello Carol,

See below.


Famous Barr  Cheesecake

2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, separated (see note)
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (colored portion of peel)
3 cups (24 ounces) cream-style cottage cheese
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup heavy cream
Mix together gelatin, 1 cup sugar and salt in the top of a double boiler. 
Beat together egg yolks and milk; add to gelatin mixture. Cook over 
simmering water, stirring constantly until gelatin is dissolved and
mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in lemon 
zest. Let cool. Force cottage cheese through a fine sieve. Add to gelatin 
mixture along with lemon juice and vanilla. Chill, stirring occasionally, 
until mixture mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon. Meanwhile, in a 
large bowl, mix melted butter, remaining 1 tablespoon sugar, graham cracker 
crumbs, cinnamon and nutmeg; set aside. Stiffly beat egg whites. In another 
bowl with clean beaters, beat cream until soft peaks form. Fold together 
whites and cream, then fold into chilled gelatin mixture. Turn into 8-inch 
springform pan; sprinkle top with crumb mixture. Chill until firm.

Hello Charlie,

There doesn't appear to be much on the Internet about this accident. I could not find a complete article anywhere, just this at:
Naval Nuclear Accidents

"Atlantic 03/03/64: The USS Newman K. Perry (DD-883) collides with a sulfur barge in Tampa Bay, Florida, sinking the barge and flooding the destroyer from stem to Frame 8."

You might find an article in the archives of one of the Tampa or Tampa Bay newspapers, such as the Tampa Tribune, but you'd have to go there to search for it. None of them have archives that go that far back on the Internet.

There are lots of reunion sites for those who served on the USS Newman K. Perry DDR 883. You might contact some former shipmates and they might be able to help you. See these sites:

Unit Pages



Charlie, don't be surprised if you never find much about this incident. It's possible that the details have been classified.


Marshall Island Recipes

Macadamia Nut Pie


Marshall Islands Dried Minced Fish


Fish ( You can do this with any fish, shark included )
Nori Komi Furikake (a Japanese spice made of roasted black and white sesame 
seed, sugar, dried seaweed, salt and soy)


Boil the cleaned or filleted fish and drain. Remove all the skin and bones, 
if any. Pull the fish meat apart and mince. In a frying pan, put a little oil 
and some garlic. Fry the fish meat until it is dry, stirring frequently. Do 
not over brown or the meat will be tough. The idea is to dry the fish, not toast 
it. Dried properly it can be stored for a long period of time without refrigeration.
When the fish is dry take off the fire, add a couple of spoonfuls of nori and mix.
Store in a closed container.


Adds a great fish flavor to your food. Toss over rice. Add to ramen to make fish
soup. Use it instead of canned tuna in mac & cheese. Add a little to your salads. 
Use as fish boullion.
