    Yes, that is very similar to the recipe I used. I swapped in cilantro and chile for the dill. Last night, flounder cooked in foil with cilantro, lemongrass, garlic and chile oyster sauce etc. over noodles with broccoli

    It is a salmon cake. The recipe is from Andrea Nguyen's Banh Mi Handbook. I can't seem to find the recipe online.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    I took pictures of my dinners last week but did not have time to post them until now. Spicy salmon sandwiches with pickled green tomatoes from my garden: Pasta fresca with some of the very last ripe tomatoes from the garden Roasted salmon tacos Fish and chips
  5. I'm sorry to hear that. We thought it was really great. Was your food too salty? Ours was perfectly seasoned. Every place has an off night, I guess. I hope the rest of your meals in Bermuda were more enjoyable!
  6. Last post for this visit. We went back to Mickey's for dinner last night but it was much too dark to take photos. So here are our last breakfasts from Lido. Yesterday I ordered the Lido breakfast, which is eggs, bacon, sausage (I omitted that), mushrooms, potatoes and spinach, cereal (omitted) toast, juice and tea. Yes it was way too much food! Husband went for the salmon breakfast And then this morning we both went for the "Healthy Breakfast" which is a piece of country toast topped with goat cheese, radishes, tomatoes, avocado and arugula, two poached eggs, yogurt with granola and berries, juice and a green smoothie. Again, too much food, but tasty. That's it until the next visit.
  7. Last night we went in to Hamilton and dined at Marcus, which is Marcus Samuelsson's restaurant in the Hamilton Princess Hotel. Menu Drinks bread service Fish chowder bites with the flavors of Bermuda fish chowder (rum and sherry peppers) Deviled eggs Local wahoo Crab spaghetti--this was amazing Creme brûlée for dessert. Overall a fine meal.
  8. It's very nice, very old Bermuda. We are staying in an ocean view room, and those are a bit separated from the rest of the garden view rooms. I don't think I would be as happy in a garden view room. It does not have as many amenities as some of the other hotels (for example, there is no on site dive shop or even a resort gift shop). There are multiple very good restaurants on property that are managed by a different group than the one that runs the hotel. The beach is beautiful. There is definitely at least one corporate group here now, maybe more. You can spot them by the drinking on the beach at 10AM and the use of amplified music 😉 Luckily the beach area is large so it's easy to avoid them. So, yesterday for lunch we headed in to Hamilton to do some errands and stopped in for lunch at Harry's Bar. We decided to split a couple of things. Tuna tartar in wonton tacos Salt and szechuan pepper shrimp (a tad too salty) and then we split a fish sandwich. The kitchen split it for us in the kitchen which was nice Last night we had dinner at the Ocean Club at the Southhampton Princess. View Bread service with kaffir lime butter and amuse bouche of pea puree with scallop tartare drinks Tuna tartare Lobster duo of lobster seveche and lobster cappuccino By the time the entrees came it was pitch black. My husband had a grilled Bermuda lobster but you will have to take my word for it because the picture did not come out. I had the seafood mixed grill which was wahoo, calamari, shrimp, and scallops with lemon butter sauce and fries. I'm sure you can tell how dark it was from this photo! Too full for dessert. Today we had breakfast at the Lido. View Omelet with tomatoes, onions, and cheddar Smoked salmon plate with poached eggs. There was a ton of salmon, I did not come close to eating it all
  9. I'm back in Bermuda for a long weekend. There's a rain shower passing through so I thought I would update this topic while waiting it out. We flew out yesterday and had breakfast at Legal Sea Foods at Logan Airport. Airport food is very much hit or miss but :Legal usually does a pretty good job. My husband ordered a lobster omelet. I should have taken a picture after he cut into it because it was completely stuffed with huge chunks of lobster I ordered a crab cake and egg sandwich. I asked for the egg to be over easy, but as you can see it was completely overcooked. I just pushed it off and ate the crab cake with the avocado and tomato. The crab was very fresh. We had a bumpy flight in including alarms blaring and lots of turbulence but we made it. We are staying at Elbow Beach hotel. Here's the beach Last night we had dinner at Mickey's which is at the hotel. Cocktail of champagne with elderflower and mint View Wahoo carpaccio Poached shrimp with torched avocado and orange Tuna with broccolini and olives, with a cape sauce. This was delicious and I managed to finish most of it husband had the seafood mixed grill Another beach shot And just like the that, the sun is out. Off to find lunch!

    Shrimp tacos. The thing that made me happiest about this meal was the char I got on the tortillas with my new dual fuel oven. My house had all electric appliances and during my kitchen renovation I swapped out the old oven for a dual fuel with gas range and electric oven. A gas range makes me a happy person.

    the other night I grilled a porterhouse for my husband. I started slicing it off the bone but then he decided he wanted the bone too. I also made portobellos stuffed with spinach and goat cheese, crispy potatoes, and some tomatoes from my garden. The portobellos were my main dish and very good. Last night, scallop boats and oven fries

Bread plate with ricotta and olive oil Charcuterie board Pizza with wild mushrooms and arugula polpette pizza bacon, egg, and cheese pizza pizza with squash and ricotta salata Capri pizza

    Yes, it was delicious! My husband brought it home from the farmer's market. We are lucky to have access to really good local fish. This particular company sells their fish with a QR code on the package that gives you information about the fish you are buying. You can get the fisherman's name, the name of the boat, the catch method, where it is caught etc. They sell at farmer's markets around the city as well as the Boston Public Market. It's good stuff. https://www.redsbest.com/redsbest/
