First Meal in the New House!

We have officially settled into our new house! I absolutely love living in the Old Village of Mount Pleasant. My girls have numerous friends in the neighborhood and we are biking and walking distance to school and Shem Creek. For our first supper, we rode our bikes to pick up local shrimp at the dock and then over to Mount Pleasant Seafood for some freshly caught snapper.

The snapper is simply prepared. First, I pat the filets dry with paper towels and seasoned with salt and freshly ground pepper. Then, I seared for 2-3 minutes on each side with a tablespoon of oil on a very hot smoking cast iron skillet. Finally, I top the dish with chimichurri sauce and microgreens! Chimichurri sauce is great on a variety of meats, so try it with your next meal. Enjoy!
