How to Cook (without peanut butter!)

Hi guys!

So as you know, the ladies had a little escapade this weekend.  Being that my meals at school usually consist of leftovers and/or yogurt, the highlight of my trip was being able to cook something fresh and delicious. I love to cook— and I mean LOVE, readers.  But nowadays it’s a rare occasion to have access to such novelties as stoves and bowls, so last nights meal felt downright gourmet.

I was thinking about you guys, readers, and figured some of you guys probably love to cook, too.  So, in case you were interested, here’s the recipe for last night’s meal.  It’s SUPER easy and pretty good tasting, too!
Oh and here’s the thing, readers; I don’t measure.  Maybe if I was getting fancy, but college students as a whole are not that fancy, so trust your instincts with this one.

Mahi Mahi with Starfruit and Pineapple Salsa
red  bell pepper
green bell pepper
2 starfruits
pineapple (sliced, diced, whatever- from a can works perfectly fine)
olive oil
cilantro
butter
1 lime
Mahi Mahi (one filet per person)

Dice the peppers, starfruit, and pineapple, and toss in a saucepan with a tad bit of olive oil on medium heat for not all that long. While they’re cooking, cut the lime in half and squeeze it over the pan.  This part smells really good!  Stir ’em up for a bit longer, just to combine and release those good flavors.  Add a tad of cilantro.  Then take ’em all out, put in a bowl and chill.
Now take your mahi (or whatever fish you want, really), properly thawed of course, and put them on an oven-safe pan.  Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with cilantro, and stick a daub of butter on top.  Now bake in a 400-degree oven for 15ish minutes, or until the fish is white and flaky.  It shouldn’t take long.
When the fish is done, serve it with the salsa on top and garnish it if you’re feeling classy.  Then
eat it. It’s good.

 That’s really it, readers.   The only downside is that this recipe requires basic amenities (i.e. something besides a microwave), so if you’re like me and don’t really have access to these things (Pei dorms represent!), you might need to wait ’til your next trip home to make this.  But if you’re lucky and are able to find somewhere to cook…well, I promise it’s better than Ham food.

Enjoy!
