I had 8 reasonable sized tomatillas sitting staring at me on my counter, making me feel guilty for not using them, and telling me that if I did not use them soon, they would end up as compost, or worse! So I stuck them into a pot with about 1 cup of water and two serranos, simmered them until they were cooked, left them sitting in the water and went and did other things.(Itook their raincoats off first!) So then I turned them into a green sauce, adding two garlic cloves, two slices of onion, chopped fine, one cup of cilantro, chopped up(does NOT taste like soap, I checked, YUK)one tsp of oregano(Mex, of course)a little salt, and spun it all in the blender, then cooked it in a pot for about 15 minutes, let sit, until I decided what to do with it! Went out shopping, found a beautiful chunk of halibut, so took that home, poached it in a little water that the tomatillas had cooked in, and then removed the bones, and let it sit. Greased a little casserole dish(this fish was about a lb) and chunked the fish into it, then put some of that tomatilla sauce over the fish, and let it sit for awhile so it could ponder on its sins that brought it to green end.
