For example, if I as a forty something year old woman utters the phrase "Last night on Pretty Little Liars...", it had better be because my 18 year-old daughter and her sister were watching it. Otherwise, that would be just wrong.
Likewise, telling your family that you are serving them fish topped with pickles is only okay if it is done in the context of French Fridays with Dorie. I don't think I could get anyone to try it otherwise...

I really don't know what to say here. It sounds crazy, but it kind of worked.
White fish (no skate to be found, I used haddock) was dredged and given the brown butter treatment. While the fish was taking a rest, a simple pan sauce of sherry, butter and mustard was made. Capers and sliced cornichons (i.e. baby pickles) were stirred into the sauce. The sauce was poured over the fish and voila. Dinner.
I was not 100% sold on the combination, but everyone else really liked it. I guess if I can hold my own in a Pretty Little Liars conversation, eating fish with pickles should be a no brainer, right???
