Yes, they are great and until there are more affordable models, but pay on average 500 or 600 dollars in each roll and still have to pay installation costs is something, at least, disheartening.

Fashion and Food: Mackerel

2 – seasonal grilled Mackerel with couscous salad, avocado, Tangerine and fennel

And continuing in the seasonal series, we leave for a barbecue in the garden, all to prepare properly, on the grill, the beautiful horsetails. From the sardines, dressed in silver as them and who shouted all the fish stalls of the Market, almost begging the parish: We! Us! Girl takes us! Sir, we are at the point, fatties!

I couldn’t resist, because lead was in gray color palette of the Bia, as well as a green burnt almost Moss, which gave me the idea to combine with avocado and the same finishing touch was the fennel and tangerines, which are booming in the season.

Put the Bia on the grill to finish the horsetails and Andre broke up the trimmings and assembling the dish. And when we add the look with the food, Wow! A sleeve, the collar has the refreshing orange salad with fennel, and grill marks on horsetails left all they dressed in the same coat of Bia. Bingo!

And the best part of the story, everything was delicious, hard was doing the production stop eating and go back to the test!

The recipe gives you now: grilled mackerel accompanied outlet of Moroccan couscous with Zucchini, carrot and avocado and fresh salad of fennel with Tangerine.

Nothing simpler than do fish, just grease with olive oil, a few minutes on the grill and they’re ready. To follow did a Moroccan couscous with cubes of Zucchini, carrot and avocado, as well as the garden chives and olive oil. And to finish a classic salad: Tangerine slices with thin blades of fennel, super fresh to counterbalance the deep flavors of the horsetails. Was the man of the Mediterranean, as well as very easy to do.

Way of doing

Light the barbecue

This small barbecue is called Genghis khan and I love, is mayor to a rich little, to SIP in the garden and while baking a goldfish, a shrimp … To start the fire, use a lighter and case, forgot one (like me. ..) use paper and stale bread soaked in alcohol to 98 degrees. About he put the coal. There is only light and start singing light my fire mentally … or do you prefer Franz Ferdinand with This Fire? I get between one and another.

Horsetails

When the pans are formed, grease the mackerel with olive oil and take them directly to the grid. Just 2 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and sprinkle with Fleur de Sel.

Couscous

Hydrate the semolina with hot water flavored with lemon, a dash of olive oil and a teaspoon salt. Mix well, cover with a dishcloth and wait 5 minutes. Put the semolina with a fork, undoing the lumps. In a bowl mix the ceboura, Zucchini, avocado, grated zest and chives. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon, sprinkle of Fleur de Sel and pepper expecting things in time. Stir gently. Add the semolina and mix everything together carefully. Adjust the salt. Serve with slices of avocado.
