Red snapper, black beans and... ?
I'm making the roasted red snapper with cherry tomato salsa recipe from Epicurious for dinner tomorrow night. On the side, I'll be serving black beans I'll cook with a little garlic and lime.
Any ideas for a vegetable and also nibbles while dinner is cooking? Cheese and crackers doesn't seem right. I need some snacks that will go with the feel of the rest of the meal...
Oh, and here's the fish recipe -- It's easy and super-tasty:
What about homemade guacamole and some quality tortilla chips for nibbles?
For veggies, what about grilled asparagus, if it's in season in your area, or some lightly sautéed spinach?
How about snap peas sauteed w/garlic. Or maybe bok-choy with citrus sauce. You could also do roasted or braised fennel.
Live anywhere near a field of sweet corn? Oooh how I miss it. That's for dinner. Nibbles - perhaps fancy olives?
I was thinking spinach as well, lightly sauteed perhaps with a little garlic. Not vegetables, but basmati or brown rice sounds good too...
Nibble on some nuts -- pistachio, pecans -- but they're filling so go lightly. Hey - how about some toasted pine nuts on the spinach or rice?
