i think yesterday’s dinner was one of the best things that’s ever happened to me.

+ bell’s porter (which was actually better than i remembered, very well balanced and perfect with seafood,)
+ fresh-from-the-garden salad with assorted greens like purslane and lamb’s quarter,
+ balsamic-mint pasta salad with lamb’s quarter from the garden,
+ new zealand green mussels with white wine, lemon, butter, garlic, and chives, sauteed on the half-shell for about three minutes,
+ mango ceviche

here’s basically what i did…


one filet of red snapper (half-pound)
a few filets of tilapia (about a pound)
a few filets of ocean perch (about a pound)
a pound of shrimp
a red and an orange pepper
five mangos (used both kinds available here – the large red and green ones, and the small yellow ‘atulfo’ kind – atulfo are typically a little sweeter and riper, and ready earlier in the season.)
a couple avocados
a serrano
a little minneola orange
half a bundle of cilantro
juice from about eleven limes
salt and pepper and no other seasoning

the best meal of 2011 by far. happy summer!
