What is true is that this yellow tail and coconut rice dinner was delicious! Or maybe it was mutton fish. This is a problem when one is short term memory impaired, but my taste buds are still singing, so I know it was very good. I can't give all the ingredients, except the obvious, because I was just enjoying the process and was out of the galley for whole moments at a time.
I know there was coconut water involved with the rice water (remember the 2 to 1 ratio for rice, 1 cup rice, 2 water - I'm not sure how much of the water was coconut water. It was there, but subtle so I'd guess maybe a quarter of it, but it could have been more). If anyone wants a more recipe like recipe, I'll see if I can get the chef to help me out. Thanks, Mark! One of the better no muss / no fuss / make it good cooks I know.
|Rice, definitely rice. And James, who is checking the fish.|
|Dredging the fish in flour...James making sure it is done correctly|
|Rice is cooking, fish goes into the heated oil (trust me, that's what's going on)|
|Getting the fillets in place|
|Cooking, not long, enough to be nicely browned on one side|
|That brown...turn 'em over and do it again|
|Fish out and I think some of the oil drained (here's a mystery part, but I'm guessing)|
|Rice in, to get the good bits and finish off the cooking|
|Gently coated and...|
|Served! Very delicious. Applause held until eating was over.|
Buen provecho!! Have a sated Saturday! Do something significant.
