Got a surprise today, a gift from the project engineer, who had availed himself of a few free minutes before work to snag a fine rainbow trout. He not only landed it, he gutted and chilled it as well.
I like a man who takes care of business.
Anyway, I’m not really this guy’s tight buddy, so the fact that he offered me his morning catch suggested that everybody else had already said “no.”
I said yes. Hey, WTF, fresh trout?? I think I can live with it!!
And besides. I’d been eating in a much too pedestrian mode in recent days, and needed to class up my culinary act. A little trout in the mix seemed unlikely to cheapen my neighborhood.
So I assembled a saute: trout, tomato, red onion and cilantro
…done up in olive oil and lime juice, with virtually no other spices, as I can’t find the pepper grinder here and haven’t the heart to take my own from home:
It came out really guuud!
Anyway, it’s been a while since I shared my dinner, which my Christian up-bringing taught me was right, so I’m atoning right here and now.
