dinner…mexico style

Yesterday, we cooked an amazing dinner. Everything was grown, prepared and purchased locally. See photos below (although the photos don’t do the dinner justice – we were too anxious to eat the food).

Menu:

Jumbo Shrimp – Purchased fresh from a local fisherman who was driving around the roads of Punta Mita selling to the community. ($10 for half a kilo)

Mahi Mahi – Purchased fresh from a fisherman at the marina. ($4 for a half kilo)

Homemade Mexican rice, refried beans, pico de gallo and tortilla chips from our favorite restaurant. We got it to-go. ($7)

In our complex, there is full kitchen setup (under a palapa in the sand). It is complete with a refrigerator, bbq, sink, etc. We prepared the meal drinking beer and listening to Jimmy Buffett’s satellite radio station “Margaritaville” (btw, if you have sirius radio it’s channel 31 and it’s perfect for tropical vacations). We bbq’d the shrimp and mahi mahi with butter, garlic and lime juice. It was so delicious – quite possibly the best meal we’ve eaten since we arrived (and for $11 each). It was such a lovely experience to be cooking and eating under the stars and in the sand.
