Inspired seafood

Recently I checked in to one of the many sailing sites that I follow and have been amazed at how well this particular crew eats while under way.  While sailing across the Atlantic they hooked and landed a small Mahi which quickly found its way to the grill.  A little salt, pepper, and lemon juice and its quite the little feast.  For a side, they made some basmati rice cooked in garlic and coriander.

We decided to give it a try - unfortunately the Mahi in Colorado isn't quite as fresh but we were able to get some nice looking pieces which grilled up nice!  The rice was quite tasty and we added our own tried and true  roasted asperagus that my parents frequently make.  It was quite the delicious and simple meal -  Thanks for the inspiration Alex and Taru!

A few mights later Kate found a good price on scallops and picked up enough for the two of us for dinner.  Pan seared with lemon beurre blank - (a lot of butter with a touch of mined shallot, vermouth, and lemon juice) - it was spectacular!
