Tobalà is referred to as "the king of mezcals" because the agave plant is more scarce and harder to harvest.

Chard-Wrapped Fish with Lemon and Olive

Chard-Wrapped Fish with Lemon and Olive

I think if instead of using just salt & pepper, I might try a spice rub on the fish before the topping. But the fish did not pick up the flavor. Lastly, the olive/tomato combo is quite good and it does make the chard stems tolerable.

I find that chard stems are better in a vegetable saute and not a smooth sauce.

I wonder if someone hacked into the recipe database and changed the amount of baking soda in the recipe so that poor, unsuspecting cooks would have their waffles ruined.
