Here's teriyaki salmon being served on my fern plate. I've already posted the recipe before so just click the link to read about that. This time I left out the pineapple juice and the sauce was much thicker. The black topping (sauce) you see is the fresh ginger caramelized with the soy and brown sugar. It looks burnt, but it isn't, it tastes really good. I thought this was much nicer to look at than my next failed woven basket form below.
I am still trying to succeed with these basket forms. There must be a way, so I'll keep trying. Besides I don't like the floral forms I attached anyway, I need to make them lighter and more flower shaped. I have more ideas about that so check back.
Here's Louis Armstrong singing, There Must Be A Way. Boy could he play that trumpet and his gravelly voice is just so perfect for the jazz he sings and plays. Gary used to play big band music in clubs in San Francisco years ago and still has his trumpet. Maybe I can talk him into playing it again.
Coming up soon I'll be making Bahama Conch Chowder, so stay tuned for that. Yes, I got some real conch direct from the Bahamas at my local fish market. The queen conch is protected here in the United States and all taking is prohibited. This post is part of Mud Colony weekly what's happening in the studio. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
