Before it gets too cold to talk about beer, thought I'd share this one with you, as well as some dinners...Castello's Lager, an Italian beer.
Easy to drink and similar to American beers. Would I get it again? probably not it was a little to thin for my liking, but it was nice to try.
One thing we had for dinner was goya champuru made with corned beef hash and an egg.
First time making it this way but it was delicious.
Just saute the goya with the corned beef hash and then add in a scrambled egg, add some pepper and serve over rice.
Unfortunately this goya was from the market, the one on our lanai is only 2 inches long...boo!
Another thing we had was this carpaccio made with tai (sea bream).
I saw this recipe in the latest issue of "Elle a Table", I didn't follow the measurements just the method.
Take a white flesh fish like tai (sea bream) and slice thinly, place on plate.
*if you can find white fleshed fish that is already sliced for sashimi, then use that, it will save you some time.
Take a pinch (or more) of shiofuki kombu (dried seasoned seaweed) and chop finely with a pinch (or more) of shibazuke (pickles colored with red shiso leaves)
Add some olive oil, mix well (this will make a "sauce")
Sprinkle some chopped green onion and some toasted white sesame seeds.
Eat right away.
NOTES: this was easy, delicious and would be nice to serve at a party. Definitely making this again.
