considering writing a cookbook

So over the last couple of month I started to consider the idea of writing a cookbook and so I thought, lets keep this blog for an intermediate reference of recipes and write down combinations I come up with.

Tonight sous vide tilapia on a bed of arugula with homemade salsa


for the salsa:

bunch of different sweet tomato, think Roma, sun gold and heirlooms, 1/2lbs or so, diced
half a bunch of cilantro, minced
1/2 lime, squeezed
2-3 tbs of balsamic vinegar
2-3 tbs of olive oil
salt and pepper
1 small pomegranate, just the seeds
1/2 a red onion, diced

combined ingredients and let rest for 30-45 minutes

tilapia or other form of whitefish (think halibut, which should work better)
prepare sous vide to 135F
seal fish with a spring of thyme and some butter
cook for 20 minutes
salt and peper
sear in cast iron pan with some butter

serve over a bed of arugula, 2-3 cups worth
