As promised

After hours of trying to convince flickr to upload my pictures. (pretty please with garlic on top? no, how about bananas on top? sugar on top?)
I am back with the photo version of dinner.
The big bag of banana leaves.

They are long too!

The achiote paste was made with achiote (annatto) seeds, cumin, cinnamon, pepper, cloves, and allspice (maybe some more things, I don't remember) then mixed with OJ, lime juice, garlic,a bay leaf and maybe some other things (and no, it isn't real "pasty").

The fish then marinated for an hour before being wrapped in the banana leaf, sprinkled with fresh herbs and put on the grill.

I grilled some onions in lime and cumin for the side

While HP made some salsa

Doesn't this look good?
With a little lime and tomato on top, it really was a tasty adventure!

3 garnishes:

Forget the food, (sorry, I'm sure it was delicious) I love that bowl! Did you make it?

(silence as cuz contemplates finding a man to marry just so Kiki will make her more pottery...)

NP: Thanks!

SL: Yes, it was delicious. And yes I did make the little green bowl. It is actually my favorite ice cream bowl. You don't have to get married to get one, once I get through the 3 weddings and 5 birthdays that I'm currently working on, I'll add you to the list.

What would you like?
