Corona Easter

Pin It

It's Easter Sunday, and we had planned to meet up with DaRC to support a local restaurant.  Unfortunately, a number of places we would like to patronize don't open for lunch, so Chef DaRC offered to host us at home.  With the current Covid-19 pandemic raging across the globe, everything seems different.

These langoustines were flown in from Iceland, and they were pretty gigantic!  Chef DaRC blanched them for a short period so that they turned out mi-cuit.  Very, very nice.

We also had some pan-fried Amela tomatoes, which were very sweet, as expected.

To take things up a notch, we created our own seafood donburi (海鮮丼) with the langoustine, Japanese sea urchin, and salmon roe.  Very, very nice.

Hello Kitty and I picked up a speckled black grouper (黑瓜子斑) at our neighborhood wet market, and Chef DaRC did a pretty good job steaming it Cantonese-style.

We popped over a couple of casual bottles to go with lunch:

2013 Araujo Sauvignon Blanc Eisele Vineyard - nose of green apple and flint.  Ripe on the palate.

2017 Jean Collet Chablis Le Clos - nose of lemon and flint.

Many thanks for DaRC and Ro Ro for their hospitality. Let's hope next year is a different story.
