One of the joys of living in another place is the local food, so I am amazed when I see other expats purchasing flabby farmed salmon; there are excellent barracuda steaks right next to them at half the price and with twice the taste.

My barracuda recipe for 2

Two barracuda steaks
Mustard (wholegrain works best)
Chives, roughly chopped
Garlic, finely chopped
Salt and pepper

Gently fry the steaks (about 5 minutes each side depending on thickness) in olive oil and the garlic. Mix the yoghurt and mustard and add salt and pepper to taste. About 3 minutes before the steaks are done pour the mix over them and let it heat through. Sprinkle the chives over the top and serve on a bed of rice or with mashed potatoes and wilted spinach.

Nothing to do with fish, but Old Actress has made a lovely recording of Sappho's Hymn to Aphrodite. I have a vested interest here, as it was my suggestion she do it.

I am deeply gratified to be the dessert on your menu. Must try your recipe but may need to find an alternative to barracuda.

A recipe for two, eh? Hmmmm.
