Tamarind Onion White Fish

If you look at your proteins and think, “How can I accessorize them?” vs. “How can I cover them up?” That’s when you will get the best dish!

Think about it!  How many times have you eaten chicken or fish or meat in your life? Even vegetables? Billions of times!  So that basically means that everything you have eaten is really like an LBD: Little Black Dress.  RIGHT?

The beauty of the perfect LBD is that you can accessorize it and make it look and feel new without covering it up or feeling like you have to wear that OLD THING AGAIN!

I knew I wanted to make fish MY LBD this past Friday.  I wanted to give it new light, while working with a new flavor.
