Buffalo is known for its chicken wings as
well as for beef on ‘weck, which I talk
about briefly in my cookbook. Friday night is fish fry, which is delicious, but not that
good for you. While working during my college days at the supermarket, on Friday
nights I would head over to Nero’s Restaurant across the street for a fish fry, which
actually may have been baked – that’s my choice. The restaurant is nowhere to be
seen after it burned (just kidding, it’s been replaced with another business.) I do have
memories of the wonderful accompaniments to the fish, especially the macaroni salad.
The other opportunities for fish fry on Friday nights at almost every restaurant here
have that same macaroni salad, the recipe of which I have included below.
|macaroni salad||serves 4|
|2 cups elbow macaroni||1/2 cup dill pickle relish|
|water||2 Tbsp Weber's mustard|
|2 Tbsp lemon juice||2/3 cup mayonnaise|
|1 small onion, minced||2 Tbsp brown sugar|
|1 celery stalk, chopped||1 small red pepper, minced|
|1/2 tsp celery seeds||x|
|In a large pot, cook macaroni in water to
to directions on the package. Drain and cool slightly.
Add the other ingredients, stir to blend. Serve.
