Sea Bass and 30th Birthday Dinner


 Being that Spain is surrounded almost entirely by water, it is no shock that fish and seafood are staples in the Spanish diet. I tried many different varieties of fish while in Spain, but the sea bass was by far my favorite. I had it twice with a mild onion reduction and once with saffron sauce. All of them we equally delicious and sea bass has become my new favorite fish.

While in Spain I had the pleasure of celebrating my 30th birthday. My husband surprised me with a dinner that would be fit for a king. We ate a restaurant that overlooked the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.  We started off right with a bottle of Cava and ordered two appetizers, white asparagus (not pictured) and assorted Spanish cheeses. For dinner I had sea bass with saffron sauce and my husband had lamb. For dessert we split a piece of chocolate cake. Everything was so good, I was stuffed! It was a great birthday dinner.
