A very traditional home cooked Peruvian way of cooking !
I enjoy blogging here with simple , home cooked , friendly & healthy recipes . This is and will always be the ‘core’ of my blog & will try to provide you here with the easiest & simplest way to gourmet cooking.
I often make this dish at the O Goa where ‘Fresh Fish from the local markets closest to you are available in Plenty .
For north goa where we are it’s the Betim markets often breaming with lobster, crabs , squid & Prawns and of-course there are days when ones lucky to get scallop , oysters too !

A pleasure to make this simple yet very fashionable way of cooking & enjoying the fresh fruits of the sea specially if you happen to be at a sea side destination where fish markets are flooded with the freshest of the catch of the day brought in by the local fishermen !!
