Captain D's into Captain D-Licious
He does that sometimes, without asking. It is super cool.
On this particular day, he brought a fried seafood platter from Captain D's.
Now, I am a food snob for sure, so I was like this:
However, I was also starving, having worked through breakfast and now lunch.
Remembering a trick The Shop Tart and I had pulled a couple of times (once for a party with some fried risotto, and once at the beach with some venison burger), I went to the yard and got some shiso leaf.
So I figure it's good with anything else you'd put on a sushi roll, like Sriracha chili sauce, tamari/soy sauce, and spicy mayo. (Vegan chipotle mayo from Rosewood Market, in fact.)
Which, let's face it, are all such great condiments anyway that you could put them on a donkey foot and it would be a terrific snack.
So, funny thing: contemplating making donkey foot* sushi suddenly made the idea of Captain D's sushi bites really rather palatable in comparison.
So I went for it.
And indeed, they weren't bad!
Et voila, the "Captain D's into D-Licious lunch" was born.
*No offense, lil donkey.
P.S. Donkeys = Democrats. Obvi I've started thinking about election season 2012! I'm sticking with my man Obama.
