Seafood Dynamite

We live close to the biggest Japanese supermarket in our state.  They also have a restaurant that serves sushi.  They sell the freshest sushi grade sushi in town.  Since they sell seafood, one is sure that all the fish in they use their sushi have never been frozen.  Every Saturday we would go to their sushi… Continue reading Seafood Dynamite

Baked Fish with Sour Cream

We are still trying to recover from the holiday eating.  I guess we try to (or purposely) forget our diets from the last few weeks of the year to the first week of the new year. An attempt to eat light was our objective in fixing this dish.

Chinese Five Spice Mahi Mahi

During  trip to the supermarket we saw this beautiful fillet of Mahi Mahi.  I have always had Mahi Mahi with sour soup (Sinigang).  But this beautiful fish has to be highlighted more than just drowning it in broth. Another ingredient in this dish that I love so much is the Chinese Five Spice powder. The… Continue reading Chinese Five Spice Mahi Mahi
