Ingredients

30 ea. South Paws™ Pollock Nugget—cooked as per instructions—3 per portion
5 ea. med sized sweet potatoes—Peeled and quartered
1C heavy cream
¼# unsalted butter
2 oz. canned chipotle chopped fine in foods processor
2 ea. Celery root peeled, and shredded on food processor shredder attachment
1 ea. Red onion peeled, slice paper thin
1 ea. red bell pepper, halved, seeded, and sliced thin
1/2 ea. red cabbage, shredded with food processor
2 C mayo
1 ea. lemon, juiced
½ BU chopped tarragon

Steps

  1. Place Sweet potatoes in lightly salted water and place on stove at med-high heat. Simmer until tender. Strain.
  2. Place hot/tender Potatoes back in pot they were cooked in and add cream butter and chipotle. Use a potato masher and mash potatoes until all ingredients are incorporated and mix is as smooth as desired. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  3. While Pollock is cooking, in a large bowl, toss celery root, cabbage, red onion, red pepper, mayo, lemon juice, and tarragon. Mix well and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  4. When Pollock is cooked, plate on large entrée plate. Because the slaw is acting as the vegetable and the sauce on the plate, we recommend you place it on top of, or very near the fish.

San Francisco restaurateur Charles Phan plans to serve beer and wine, and depending on liquor licensing, perhaps cocktails as well. “For faculty and staff on campus, it will be a really wonderful place to come to and have a glass of wine,” Wolch says. “Right now, we have The Faculty Club bar, which is a very historic spot, but this is going to be much more contemporary.”

And for morning coffee...

Phan’s plan for made-to-order coffee is bound to be a boon for both faculty and students. “We’ll have a brand-new espresso machine,” Phan says. Wolch adds, “Most...
