Nothing is lovelier than sitting on my garden chair, flipping through magazines, with a glass of wine nearby and the garden freshly trimmed. This summer afternoon, the sky was clear and blue, the sun was shining boldly and there were gentle winds rustling the heads of the newly blooming sweetpeas. Don't you just love Sunday afternoons in the summer?
On the menu tonight are some seabreams. They looked fresh and glistening on the shop counter yesterday. Not the fishmonger, as magazines like to tell you, but good honest middle of the road grocer. The magazines also said that seabream is a good alternative to seabass. There are articles after articles on eating fish sustainably. These seabreams of mine are destined to go under the grill and I have in mind a brush of garlic and chilli in olive oil for the skin and some juicy lime to soothe the singed skin afterwards and perk up my tastebuds!
So an easy, lazy summer dish. Ten minutes under the grill, eaten with some tossed spinach and pepper salad, leaving you more time to soak in the sun.
I raise my glass to you. Carpe Diem!
