As pretty as this dish looks, there is no way I would eat the fish raw.
I prepared the recipe using only a quarter of the ingredients
simply because I did not want to add this to my make-up list.
I used a biscuit cutter for the ring and that worked perfectly.
I made sure I had the camera ready when I removed the ring,
thinking it would fall apart. (It did not)
I will admit that I sampled a smidgen of the dish and surprisingly,
I was more turned off by the lime flavor than the raw fish. For
anyone that loves raw seafood, this is a beautiful presentation.Per Tricia~
I am not a fan of raw fish (possibly genetic :) and evidently I am
also quite lazy, since the time consuming work on the limes was
enough to sway me unfavorably against this week's recipe.
That said, I could not get over how wonderful the aroma of the
fresh limes, chives, mint and scallions was - not to mention
how gorgeous all the ingredients looked as they got prepped.
I was truly excited to give this a try.
Unfortunately I did not care for the flavors. Not surprising, but I
was surprised that my sushi loving husband also did not care for
it, saying he did not like the lime/tomato combo.
All was not lost as this recipe reminded me how much I love fresh mint
and I now have plans to plant some fresh mint in my garden.....
Happy French Friday ~
