Cobia-bia! Steaks

August 16, 2011

I’ve recently discovered it’s good to know people in high places. It’s especially good to know people who have a boat, like to spearfish, and are generous with their catches. Lucky for me and my belly, ManFriend has befriended that type of person.

The other day I was deciding what to make for dinner, and I was debating between chicken and chicken. Not only am I the least creative person in the kitchen, I’m also lazy (as seen here). The timing couldn’t have been more perfect when ManFriend walked through the door with a big bag of fish, and not just any type of fish – Cobia(-bia). I don’t know much about it other than that it’s supposed to be delicious, and I don’t need to be sold on anything else…

Since my knowledge of white meat starts and ends with chicken, I let ManFriend take on this one (ok fine, he was going to take over regardless). After the filleting and cleaning, we had little Cobia-bia steaks. Marinate them in Italian dressing for an hour (or more if you have the time), then place them on a hot grill for 5 minutes on each side, and that’s it.

I would’ve been satisfied with just the Cobia-bia steaks, but since we’ve been hitting the gym like we’re a bunch of AHHH-nolds, the appetite’s been a-ragin’ and so it was time to kick it up a notch.

We grilled up some corn, made a pot of whole-wheat pasta, and caramelized some mushrooms for good measure.

{soak the corn with husks on in water for an hour, then place on grill until charred}

{ManFriend loves him some grilled corn}

{yes, I put ketchup on my pasta – and on EVERYTHING ELSE – what of it}

{saute mushrooms in EVOO, Worcestershire sauce and some salt n’ peppa}

And for dessert, we washed it down with a nice cold glass of chocolate vino. That’s right – chocolate vino – a glorious gift given to us at our housewarming party. A fair warning: be sure to drink it ICE COLD, otherwise it’ll taste like glorified moonshine with a splash of chocolate cream. Meaning: not delish.

The meal was made for just us 2, but you would’ve thought otherwise after seeing the spread…
