A Feast of Thrones: Chapter 5

The trout, sigil of House Tully, arrived as our fish course in the form of a ceviche. Had it not been for a small reference in the Archer TV series, I wouldn't have had a clue what I was about to eat.

Ceviche[6] (also spelled cebiche or seviche)[7][8] is a seafood dish popular in the coastal regions of the Americas, especially Central and South America.[3] The dish is typically made from fresh raw fish marinated in citrus juices such as lemon or lime and spiced with chilli peppers. Additional seasonings such as onion, salt, and pepper may also be added. Ceviche is usually accompanied by side dishes that complement its flavors such as sweet potato, lettuce, corn, or avocado.[9][10][11] As the dish is not cooked with heat, it must be prepared fresh to avoid the potential for food poisoning.[12] (from Wikipedia)

Pete is a big fan of sushi, and so am I, so this isn't too much of a culinary stretch in that regard, and again, full marks for presentation! He even made the tortilla bowls himself. OCD never tasted so good!

An intoxicating amalgamation of whitefish, onion, peppers and avocado, this was yet another highlight of introduction.

And the plate principal was yet to arrive!
