It is not a one person thing. What makes it so satisfying is the spirit of a community, a team that we find here!
That is why I love it.
Anyway, I signed up for a food penpal program organized by Cici Wandere from Foodie in the Desert.
I was awed by the idea of exchanging food parcels with someone else, someone new, someone in this community.
So I was paired with Gathoni, not a blogger herself but I hope I convinced her to start her own blog.
Anyway, we started emailing, chatting about food and other non related things. At first, I thought we were supposed to exchange parcels but it soon became clear that Gathoni was to send me a parcel and I was to send to Gatuiri at Leo Tunapika?You can read about her experience on her blog.
So, we organized a meet up and since I live in Thika, Gathoni decided to drop the parcel here.
I was too excited to take adequate photographs of what she brought for me.
In the package was:
-2 garlic onions
-A bunch of dhania
-turmericAnd then there was also a recipe which she emailed me and am sharing with you.
Fish in 7 minutes
Pestle n mortar
Dress the fish with salt on both sides,
Slice the dhania
In a seperate bowl squeeze the juice of three lemons
In a pestle n mortar mix dnana jeera tumeric dhania about two tablespoons of oil,a pinch of salt garlic and the lemon juice
Mash them into a smooth paste
Take the fish and apply the paste on top and below generously
## if u have an oven preheat it to about 150degrees alternatively use a microwave
Place the fish as it is in a microwave dish or baking tray, if u will use the oven bake it for 15-20 mins if u will microwave it do it for 8-10 mins
The fish will remove some juices when ready and if u push a finger through it will sink
You can serve with rice,mashed potatoes or ugali
I followed this recipe and the fish was so delicious.
I served it with rice and hubby loved it.
Thank you so much Gathoni and can't wait for the December edition!
