Last night I had an amazing dinner. Sauteed dolphin, corn and okra.
Wanna know what all three have in common? I know the source.
The boys caught the fish this weekend and I was able to bring some home. Fresh as it gets. The corn is from
my our garden. Tender, sweet and perfect. I picked up the okra at a local grocery store but I love this store because they sell food that local farmers grow and it told me exactly what farm it came from.
Doesn’t get better than that.
I simply heated up some garlic olive oil in the pan, dusted the outside of the fish with cajun seasoning and seared it on both sides until cooked through. It literally fell apart with the touch of the fork. And the taste was unbelievable. Nothing frozen or bought from the store tastes this fresh. The corn was simply heated up – it had been “cooked” previously so that
I Big Guy could cut the corn off the cob and we could freeze it for good eatin’ later. But I convinced Big Guy I needed a cob or two of corn for a meals this week. It was fantastic. I’m so glad we Big Guy decided to grow corn this year. And the okra – I simply sliced and sauteed in a little garlic olive oil with a sprinkle of the same seasoning I used on the fish. Some people don’t like okra because they claim it’s slimy but I love it.
Fresh, never frozen, and local. I can get on board with that.
And as you can tell, I like to take credit for the goodness – but honestly, Big Guy’s who I need to be thanking.
