I am SO loving everyone's seafood dishes. This looks so good and healthy and oh so very tropical with both lime and orange juice. I'm also loving the new (?) dish, so pretty.

Gorgeous!!! I'm on my way over now!

I'm up too! It's just mid-afternoon here, but mine can be a midnight snack for you, LOL

Dani said...

Shamy, it really is tasty. :)I came across the recipe in a magazine years ago, and been making it ever since.

I've had the dish a few years now. There was another one that went with it, but Ollie broke it last year when he stole the Thanksgiving turkey off the

Dani said...

MS, hehehe. Save me some of that smoothie and I'll be right over.

Sharon Rudd said...

Love your seafood dish, Dani! Reminds me of a fish dish I had in Cozumel with lots of citrus and fresh veg. So much lighter, and different in flavor, from what Americans in the north are accustomed to as "Mexican food." Happy DSS!

Susan said...

Wow ! I'm trying this dish for sure. We don't get grouper much 'round here but I'm sure it would be delicious with cod (or some other firm thick white fillet).

Yummmm. Will let you know. Merci !!
ps love anything with cumin.

I don't do well with a recipe that includes a multitude of ingredients and lots of instruction. That sounds wonderful but someone else is going to have to fix it and serve me.

Buzz Kill said...

Oh to have a family that eats fish. I don't think I've ever had a fish dish with cummin in it though. That sounds interesting and maybe I'll make it for myself some time.

Happy DSS!

I love the stew-like ease of recipes like this. Even though it has a tropical "feel," you're right; comfort food all the way.

Happy DSS on a Monday!

Dani, this has always been one of my fave Mexican dishes! I thought for some reason that this DSS was healthy fish so glad to see you made a fish dish! Happy DSS!

Dani said...

Eggy, great job on DSS!!! You can never have too many recipes for zucchini. Prolific little suckers.

Susan, yep, any white fish will do.

Granny, lol!!!!

Buzz, I was very suprised when Elizabeth said she didn't like it. The girl will eat just about anything!

Moi, me too. Sometimes recipes get waaay too fussy.

Diva, feels good to make something healthy and tasty. :)

Big Shamu said...

Curious to know what unhealthy things you have been making?
Have you been a Bad Girl?

Dani said...

Lots of curry dishes. YUM! YUM!

LaDivaCucina said...

Man that looks good, Dani! Came back again to tell you that I'm up, two days late! PS: I copied this recipe immediately!

Melissa said...

Looks way yummy!

Looks good, I'd try it. :0)
