caribbean cuisine.

boyfriend and i were in the mood this past sunday to create an exciting new dish. it had felt like ages since we cooked something fresh and decided to work with fish. the last time we cooked grouper, we thoroughly enjoyed it. so we decided to go with it again. but this time we opted for a homemade mango salsa topping. we bought 2 mangos and diced them up (they could have been more ripe, but nonetheless, they were still delicious), and added chopped peppers, lime juice, onion, and cilantro. we let that sit for about 45 minutes while we worked on the side dishes. tyler wanted to make a coconut rice pilaf, which i never had but it sounded perfect with the type of dish we were going for. we added light coconut milk, peppers, and garlic to the rice and let that cook for 20 minutes on the stove. then for our veggies (should always add some green to your dish :D), we steamed green beans and added a touch of lemon. there was no need to season the grouper as the salsa was enough flavor. this dish was amazing and by far my favorite one. not only was the dish so colorful and so light, but it was very filling, and had so many different components that all complimented each other. i can't wait to make it again!
