Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Sprinkle salt over diced cucumber and drain in colander about 15 minutes. Heat oil over medium high heat in a large frying pan. Cook onion until just brown. Reduce heat to medium. Add garlic and cucumbers and cook for 3 minutes. Add roasted pepper, spices, honey and vinegar. Cook until liquid begins to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Place in a bowl. Using the same pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Cook fish steaks about 5 minutes on each side, or until done. Serve salsa over fish.
