Last weekend I went to the beach with my parents and I coerced my mom into attempting a recipe from Bon Appetit. I bought a year long subscription to Bon Appetit for $4 a few months ago that I learned about from Hip2Save, a cool couponing/saving website. My first issue arrived last week and it had Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover. Apparently she has written a new cookbook. She is taking multi-tasking to a new level.
We decided to make Grilled Halibut with Mango Avocado Salsa. We pretty much dropped the ball on the fish as we decided to bake it instead of grill it and also to get some cod instead of all halibut. So the fish was not my fave. But the salsa was awesome. I loved it. I was a little worried about the mango but apparently we ended up getting one that was perfectly ripe and sweet. The sweetness of the mango was good mixed with the other veggies and such. Seriously, it was good. I ate a bunch of the leftover salsa the next day on some chips. I think the fish would have been much better if we grilled it. I also added a few onions to the salsa the next day when I used it on chips. It was delightful and a great summer dish.
So in conclusion, I trust Gwyneth with my food needs.
Now here are some pictures.....
