A FAMILIAR/GOOD PLACE #STUFFED WHOLE SNAPPER

SURFED WITH #SNAPPER IN SWEET/SOUR VEGGIE PICKLES

I can never grow tired of ‘good/old’ seafood. Went with a pan-fried whole snapper. After frying same, allowed the beautiful specimen to absorb the sweet and sour juices from a bed of veggie pickles. I was truly over the moon with my indulgence.

MIND-BLOWING JERK TURKEY BALLS

Not all balls are created equal. There are balls. And, there are BALLS!! Of course, I went the ones that screamed enormous flavors. After all, I’ve been here before.

A pinch of Chinese five-spice was added in order to boost the taste. Chicken was chopped into bite-sized portions and added to stir-fried assorted  vegetables consisting of broccoli, asparagus, onions, vine-ripe tomatoes and kale. My…

On this Easter day, I decided to be in company of the other feathery one. My protein of choice was  turkey. Transformed my lean protein into a succulent loaf.
