So I tried my ethnic dish...

...and have to say that I am not very happy with it. I tried an Asian Yellowfin Tuna dish. First, the recipe calls for you to create a sea salt crust on the tuna. But this made the tuna wayyyyyyyyyy too salty! If you cut off the edges of the tuna, then it was rather tasty. I also found that the sauce, while good was not great. But maybe it's because I didn't have the exact ingredients (haha) - for example, I used lemon juice instead of lime juice and white vinegar in place of rice vinegar and powdered ginger and garlic in place of fresh ginger and garlic. Needless-to-say, the ethnic dish was a wipe out. I guess I'll have to try another one, so I can add a recipe to the ethnic dishes.

I once tried making Moroccan lamb kebabs with a yogurt sauce that I had seen on Dave Lieberman's Good Deal show. It's a different taste than I'm used to (Karen tried them too), but after you get used to it (and I think it is an acquired taste), I started to like them. I think I'll try something else though, but am happy to share that recipe if anyone is interested.

The Hoisin-Lime Salmon was my second attempt of a more "ethnic" dish, although perhaps a bit cheating. It still tastes awesome!
