Simple yet tasty

Got curious with it, then try to figure out what is on the dish. When my siblings were around, we went to this local resto, famous for its grilled dishes and aside from those, discovered a simple dish. And last night, i had the chance to prepare the same dish, well not totally the same. It was an okra or lady finger, blanched then sauteed in butter with garlic and onions. I didn't had the same taste but it tastes great. So great that i had done the same dish earlier, haha. Have you ever tried to copy a dish from a restaurant too?

its worth the try and discover new dish all the time. even tastier just what you did and perhaps even cheaper. In the restaurant, when they call a dish their specialty, their signature, for sure, there's a secret in their ingredients or the way they cook, the reason why it is not the same as what you've cooked.

I love okra . I would dip a blanched one in bagoong with lemon drops and chopped Thai Chili . So yummy ! But that one seemed yummy also . I will also try that . But why do we still have to blanch it when it will be sauteed later ?

Last night we went to a new Mexican restaurant and each of us had a dish topped with something they called "avocado salsa". It was all green. I have some ideas how to make it, but have not seen anything like it online for sure.

oh yes, a lot of times. When I try to copy it and I did not get the same taste, I search for it also on the internet. Though if it was a competition, my husband copies the dishes best. I guess some people have the gift to determine (even the spices) the ingredients used. By the way, that is a good dish. I might just copy yours
