Summer is officially over–and in a week I’ll be heading to the Caribbean for a much-anticipated vacation. It seemed that the right thing to do, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of my first dinner party in this town, was to throw another, Caribbean-themed party. Right on!
The appetizer was conch fritters (actually made with scallops, alas) with lime tartar sauce and mango salsa. Both the condiments at once were very good. I used Emeril Lagasse’s recipe but added a lot more Bayou Blast seasoning and also some cornmeal.
It all looked good on a plate. Dessert (of course there was dessert!) was coconut pudding and frozen key lime pie. They looked so good that we dug into them before they could be photographed. Rest assured–they were beautiful also.
Viva Caribbean food and viva my upcoming vacay! Hooray!
