Corned Beef with Cabbage Gratin


I hope that everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day weekend! It was an amazing weekend here in Chicago, weather-wise. It felt like summer! I felt like grilling more than simmering a big hunk of corned beef but it had to be done. I didn't grow up eating a traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner so I thought I'd take a few liberties with this meal. I'm probably one of the few people who actually enjoys boiled cabbage but my family definitely does not. So I decided to come up with a way to make the cabbage more appetizing to my family. What if I make it creamy and cheesy? Cabbage gratin!

I must start this post with an apology. I've been a bad blogger. I can't believe I haven't posted since December! Sorry for the long delay between posts everyone.

Maybe it was the long winter that has kept me from posting because today happened to feel very spring-like. I think the it was the warm weather than inspired me to fire up the grill and make these tacos. Most fish tacos I've seen involve battering and frying the fish. I actually prefer grilling the fish. I love the smokiness and char that the grill brings. And as much as I love fried food, I dislike making it at home. I think it would be great if you sauteed the fish as well, but if you can grill it, that's the way to go.
