My New Favourite Dish... and a Wish
This week I went into the city to see a Capella group, The Idea of North, with some friends.
Beforehand, Joy and I ate at One (Tony Bilson's Wine Bar and Bistro), and we asked the waiter to recommend something.

Kingfish Peruvian Ceviche
Well, it was delicious! Ours was served with sweet potato and a shot of vodka.
I have 'googled' the recipe:

The Peruvian cook cleans the fish and lets it soak in salt water for 10 minutes and then removes it and pats it dry.

1 lb fish fillets of corbina, red snapper, or any good quality whitefish

juice of three lemons

juice of three sour oranges or limes

one medium onion, thinly sliced

salt and pepper to taste

a pinch of cayenne pepper

1 clove of garlic, minced

1 hot pepper, chopped fine

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro (coriander)

Cut fish into pieces and place on a platter. Place the thinly sliced onions on the fish. Then add the remaining ingredients, covering with the juices. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours before serving. Serve on bed of lettuce and garnish with cold sweet potato or corn-on-the-cob.

The Idea of North were amazing. So clever.
I wish I could sing...
