Since I have come home from Africa, I have had a serious case of the travel flu. I’m sure many of you had come down with this bug at some point in your life. You know that feeling when all you can think about is traveling and you would just love to get out and explore, just be anywhere but here. Well this time it has hit me hard. I have been planning my around the world trip for two and a half years from now. I have also been trying to squeeze some sort of trip in for the meantime.
One thing I love about cooking is that it can transport you to another place. Different flavors and techniques are used all over the world. When you are not able to travel, cooking food from different cultures is the next best thing. Cooking various ethnic foods has gotten me through this bad case of the travel flu. I love exploring the different flavors of each country and culture. Each combination has something completely different to offer. This recipe is a delicious combination of Mediterranean flavors. The olive tapenade is complimented by a tangy chive and olive oil blend, both of which add strong flavors to an already delicious cut of grilled mahi mahi.
