Putting the Jazz in Jasmine
Made some tuna steak last night. Tasty treats! Served with some jasmine rice and some steamed asparagus. I also made a honey-soy glaze for the fish and it was really nice. I got the idea from a cookbook I have on minimalist asian cooking. There are some great ideas and concepts in there, I will be trying more in the coming posts. That's one thing I love about eastern cooking, the ability to take few ingredients and turn it into really good stuff. So, as promised (to myself), I have started to eat more fish and I have to say that I am digging it. It's a really good idea, actually. Fish is one of the last great wild foods, I think that there is something to be said for that. I have really been thinking a lot about the things that I eat lately, and trying to develop some sort of philosophy on why I eat the things (and the way) that I do. I guess if I had to narrow it down it would be that I appreciate that the animals/vegetables I make were provided for me and want to make the best possible things that I can out of them. Odds are, those animals were probably happier not on my plate, so I have really been thinking about that lately and not taking any of it for granted. I'm not saying that I am going to give up eating meat (anyone who knows me, knows that is impossible), I think that I am just going to give up eating crappy meat, or food made without love. I mean, this is the stuff that we put into our bodies, people! Think about it! I have to go. sleepy treats await.
