Coming from the azores Islands, I am inspired to cook a lot of seafood. Because I work crazy hours, I want something that is quick, easy, and good for me and my husband. My family gets together a least once a week, and they look forward to eating different foods from our culture, since their wives are both Canadian, and don't cook a lot. The dish is served on a plain white plate, drizzled with a bit of olive oil over it, and some green and black olives surrounding it. Very simple, but elegant.
