The dinner consisted of grilled white fish that had been “dry-rubbed” with minced garlic paste, powdered thyme, and white pepper; shredded and sautéed with chopped leek in a butter and white wine sauce; cooled and mixed with a sour cream, diced cherry tomato, diced black olive, and chopped fresh parsley sauce; and wrapped in toasted tortillas; julienned iceberg lettuce leaves with quartered cherry tomatoes, a drizzle of creamy cheese dressing, dried oregano flakes, grated black sesame seeds, and grated parmesan cheese; canned chili beans with a fresh parsley garnish; and leftover pre-cooked rice reheated with instant miso soup package; molded; and garnished with a pickled plum pinch.
