There was a special guest this time, my brother’s girlfriend. In total, I’d to cook for 6. At the supermarket, I found some really nice Avocados & decided to serve that with Surimi Crabmeat as a starter.
For my next course, I made Crispy Anchovy Garlic Toast to go with my Cream of Wild Mushroom, using Portobello & Mixed Button Mushrooms.
For main, I decided to reconstruct the Seafood Ciopinno my family ate @ a restaurant sometime ago.
Cioppino is somewhat similar to Bouillabaisse, traditionally made from the catch of the day, typically a combination of seafood & tomatoes in a wine sauce. Bouillabaisse is a regular affair at home, so I just had to add Linguine & Soft Shell Crab to imitate the restaurant’s Seafood Ciopinno.
Dessert was really impromptu. I picked whatever I can see from the supermart & created this.
Hershey’s Fruity Surprise.
