Hi Guys~

I was googling for a recipe for dorado today (got 88lbs of filet in the fridge - viva la mexico!), and stumbled across this, which for some reason I find irresistably funny.

I thought you folks might appreciate it... it's actually kinda fun to try to deconstruct various pieces of it.

Here's an excerpt:

"Mahi mahi is a enthusiastic all-around seek for meet most some preparation method you poverty to use. Poach it, clean it, fry it, heat it, frame it—it’s every good. Just be certain not to overcook it."

Frame it?!?!?

Cheers!

I'd say that 'frame it' is the least of the problems.

“Frame it?!?!?”

Who wouldn't frame a fish to get off the hook or out of the dragnet?

I could figure out part of it but I'm not familiar with some of these ingredients. Father Steve, do you keep embattled mustard on hand?

Ingredients
2 pounds mahi mahi fillets (skinless)
2 tablespoons embattled mustard
1/2 prize preparation oil
1/2 containerful salt
1 ail garlic, minced
1/2 prize icy chromatic humour concentrate
1 niche leaf

Does anyone know what language this was "translated" from?

mahi mahi

Cooking! Yes. Very good free style recipe.
Though two table spoons embattled mustard seems much.
The niche leaf surely comes from a local herb growing in the niches of the Mexican coastal cliffs.
The humour thing..................?

Are you saying you understand the recipe? What, pray tell, does "1/2 prize icy chromatic humour concentrate' mean?

I would guess embattled mustard must be mustard powder. The mustard seeds have had battle done to them with the mortar and pestle.

Ho,no. I didn't end with the question mark for nothing.
It must be the most mouth watering ingredient though as it comes early into the 'marinade'.

Unravel this and succes with your guests will be unequalled.

This one is great too:

5. Place belittle on crowning demolition of oven and cooking 5 or 6 transactions on apiece side. Fish module be primed when you crapper easily anomaly it with a fork.

Hmmm? (the only thing I lack is the dorados)
Bon appetite, cara! \:\)

In that case it would be Mono Sodium Glutamate.
