Patarashca - definitely delicious

Peru - Still talking about peruvian cuisine, I can’t say enough about one of the most delicious fish dishes I ate while in Peru.

Located in northeastern Peru, just outside of Iquitos in the Amazon, we took a boat ride out to Al Frio y Al Fuego - a floating restaurant on the Itaya River.

It was probably one of the best fish dishes I’ve tasted.  Here they prepare this dish using fresh fish with fresh onions, garlic, tomatoes, and sweet chilies finely chopped and topped with cilantro marinated in extra virgin olive oil, white wine and all wrapped up in a fresh bijao leaf and grilled to perfection.Upload from July 24, 2011 Upload from July 24, 2011 Upload from July 24, 2011 Upload from July 24, 2011YUM - so incredibly tasty!Upload from July 24, 2011After a delicious meal, it was time to board the restaurant’s boat back to Iquitos. An interesting trip back. Halfway back, our boat seemed to lose power. Upload from July 25, 2011

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
