Lenguado or Turbot in English, is a fish that I don’t come across too often since I left Uruguay. It’s funny how when you are young you do not have the appreciation for what is around you and then you leave home and come to discover that the supermarket sells that lovely fish that you took for granted as a child at $14 a pound! Check out about fishing in Uruguay.
Irrelevant of the price issue, I went ahead and bought a nice healthy fillet for old times sake. The idea of taking that first bite and reminiscing about eating it way back when was irresistible <3
Tonight I indulged on my little Lenguado treat and I decided to keep in fresh and simple, just a sprinkle of salt and pepper and pan cooked it in a little bit of butter.
I served it with a wonderful Lemon Zucchini Salad I had prepared over the weekend (if interested you can check the recipe out on my blog, just click here to be directed accordingly)
I have to say that my memory served me right, the Lenguado (Turbot) turned out to be light, delicious and delicate and paired wonderfully with my Lemon Zuccini Salad 🙂
This was one happy memory reinactment!
