Dinner Last Night

Dinner last night was a success thanks to Food Network Chef, Guy Fieri. My mom joined my fiance and I for a dinner of pepita encrusted halibut with cilantro-serrano cream sauce with green chile mashers on the side. I watched this episode of Guy's Big Bite, and was intrigued by the unique play of flavors - pepitas to fish and chiles to mashed potatoes. It sounded delicious so I was excited for an excuse to try these recipes at home. Admittedly, before purchasing the ingredients, I had to google was a "pepita" was. Surprise, surprise, pepita is only a fancy new buzz word for pumpkin seed, which were pretty easy to find at a local organic market. Dinner was splendid! The dishes turned out nicely, the pepitas added a pleasant crunch to the texture of the fish.
