With the weather in Seattle finally taking a turn towards the SUN again, barbecue grills are coming out in force. Last night it was actually warm enough to eat dinner in the cockpit of our sailboat, which is unusual for April. Climate change? Likely, but that’s a topic for another blog post…
I grabbed some veggies and fish on my way home from work, and Chef Captain Kirk fixed the best Mahi I think I’ve ever had. (He says I say that every time, but seriously, the lemon-ginger seasoning was fantastic!) Also, you should know that I’ve never met a Brussels Sprout that I cared for, until these. Wow, now I’m hooked! So we just had to share this Lemon-Ginger Mahi with Grilled Veggies recipe with you. Enjoy!
Besides making delicious tasting meals, we do our best to ensure we’re helping the planet and our bodies with our food choices. For our fish, we follow the guidelines on the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Card. We use the Dirty Dozen – Clean 15 list and buy organic whenever possible, especially tomatoes, and lemons and limes for zesting.
We also ensure our olive oil is really olive oil (read my post Is Your Olive Oil Fake?). And we love Trader Joe’s Kalamata Olive Oil with its zesty-bite.
