I made Mahi Mahi. First I made a marinade.
Thinly sliced lemon and limes
3 bay leaves
Salt and pepper
Dash soya sauce
Massage the lemon and lime zest and garlic into the fish. Then put all the ingredients into a plastic bag with the fish. Leave in the fridge until you are ready to cook.

Then I ate it! I also steamed asparagus drizzled with hollandase sauce. I topped the Mahi Mahi with some slices of lemon and lime that I heated in the skillet with the fish.

For dinner we made lemon pepper chicken which we marinaded in lemon pepper, pan fried to seal in juices and finished off in the oven. I find this keeps the chicken moist.
I made a really yummy spinach salad with fresh mozzarella cheese and olives and my home made zesty dressing.
Here is my dressing recipe:
The juice and zest of one lemon
Juice and zest of one lime
Salt and pepper
1 finely minced garlic clove
splash of olive oil
Oil from the olives that I put in the salad
Mix together and put on salad.
We went to a little cafe and had tomato and basil Margaretta pizza and a pastry. It was good.

|Fish and chips - NZ style|
On Wednesday my mom and I went to the strip district. We got squid and whole fish. The man serving us thought it was unusual to get squid tentacles and he did not really know much about the fish he gave us either.
I learned how to bone and filet a fish (I will have video up soon). It is really hard.
Dad and I made fish and chips with pouched eggs and calamari. I made beer batter out of the edmonds cook book.
I think I am going to have a go at making clam chowder.
