It seems that good things never last long enough…

Eric Bibb‘s concert on Sunday was great ! I could spend all night listening to his voice and looking at his fingers running on the guitar…

Summer. Officially, not over yet, but it’s slowly fading… Temperature drops down in the night and days are already getting shorter…

But I want to enjoy Summer until the last drop.

This snack is widely inspired by our holiday in the South Island and all the good produce available at this time of the year.

Orange roughy filets, seasoned with ginger and kaffir lime (combava) wrapped in a soft bun made with olive oil and flavored with fennel seeds. Slices of cooked sweet corn replace traditional fries. Tomatoes, lettuce, avocado or what you fancy will complement easily this fresh and simple snack.
