Jalapeno Sea Bass

Served with beet slaw and a bean and tomato dish. Majority of the vegetables were from the garden. The chiles could have been but we were using up some frozen ones.

Garden Day 130 - At Last, A Tomato

One of the soft, arbitrary goals I had for the garden was to be able to pick a good-tasting tomato before August. We just made it! Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Paul Robeson.

Technically this isn't the first tomato out of the garden. I did pick a little 'Chocolate Cherry' the other day but that wasn't even a mouthful. So we could enjoy the flavor without a lot of interference I just sliced this one up and served it with tiny bit of olive oil and salt. It tasted so good as a little nibble before our tandoori grilled lamb chops. The flavor was mild but tomatoey and not too sweet or acidic. I hope Paul pans out as a good producer.
