So Good Marlin Slabs deserve a New Recipe !!

August 6th, 2010

My friend Erick, from Puntarenas, brought me yesterday a beautiful piece of Marlin.
It was a so good piece of fresh fish meat that I decide to try with it a recipe that I was working around in the last weeks.
I notice that in our Menu, a little ambitious one, following my Wife Cecilia, there was a lack of some fish recipe with some really spicy taste, so I start doing some alchemy with several peppers, herbs, garlic and a variety of condensers for to create a white spicy sauce specific for fish recipes.
After some medium interesting results, I got a balanced sauce that fit with my idea and the arrival of this great piece Fish, was what I was needing for to start cooking the first serve of the new plate.

When the first ” Steak ” of Marlin,  prepared with butter and basil, and dressed with t he Spicy sauce , was in the dish, and we, Cecilia and be  proceeded to the ritual of the first tasting, we begun a race for to grab the most was possible, so good was the combination of the white, firm flesh and the combination of flavors of the sauce.

After a while, the question about what could be a good side dish for this fish, became the matter of a conversation, that finalize with the decision of to combine it with a Brandy flambe’ Carrots that I was studying in these days, a side dish that balance, with the natural sweetness of the Carrots, the strong spicy sauce, creating a taste break for to enjoy the next piece of fish , with renewed surprise.

So the final aspect of the new Recipe is the one you can see in this Photo :
