5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.
One fish, two fish, red fish, dinner.
Chef Brandon McGlamery of Luma on the Park and the soon-to-open Prato in Winter Park, Florida, has reeled in five enticing preparations for today's catch.

We love it when sites we dig do extra-smart stuff, so we were thrilled when our pals at Chow.com offered us a sneak preview of the 2011 edition of The Chow 13, going live tonight.
This year's list will post later today, but we're thrilled to announce that our friend Eddie Huang has made the cut this year. He's co-hosted one of our Secret Suppers and graced the pages of Eatocracy with musings on cultural identity, food writers, late-night meals, Four Loko, Tiger Moms and lessons learned from a zero-star New York Times review.
Here's why Chow digs Eddie Huang as a chef using social media smartly:
Sink your teeth into today's top stories from around the globe.
With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, you've still got a tad of time on your side. Use it to wrangle your guest list into place (leaving room for a few day-of tag-alongs), stock up, and keep from getting your feathers all ruffled in a last-second scramble for plates, drinks, turkey and places to sit.
If you've got a rough idea of how many meat-eating guests will be on hand, go with around one pound per person - one and a half if you'd like to ensure a stash of leftovers. A huge bird can be comically unwieldy, so consider sacrificing the Big Platter Presentation for the sake of sanity and back strain. Opt for two (or three or more if you have the oven space) smaller birds - and just remember to make sure you've got enough roasting pans, foil and other poultry paraphernalia on hand.
While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Stuck in the middle with you - November 3 is National Sandwich Day!
Today is an ode to our ultimate lunch-saver, the go-to meal when nothing else will work and the satisfying snacker you can hork down with one hand while driving (not that we'd recommend it). Without sandwiches, we'd be utterly lost, so slap together your favorite stacker and enjoy, whether it be breakfast lunch or dinner.
Pssst! Got a sec to chat?
We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.
Consider the daily Coffee Klatsch post as your VIP lounge – the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic.
