Bahn Mi Relish – Yummy With Grilled Fish

We had two really ripe peaches left from our sales adventure to
Jaemor Farms a couple of weeks ago….AND we brought back fresh caught Wahoo from our sales trip to Saint Simons yesterday. So….we decided to make something PHUN!

First , we marinated our Wahoo filets in sesame oil, sea salt, pepper, and a little peach juice from our peaches.

Then we diced our 2 peaches and placed them in a bowl with 2 tsp sesame oil, 2 tbsp diced onion, 2 diced jalapeños, 2 diced Stix (our own pickled carrots) and 2 tsp juice from the jar of Stix & a handful of chopped, fresh cilantro.

Next… We put the mixture in a serving dish and took it outside for a picture in good lighting. And…our neighbors showed up!

The deer in our neighborhood act like they’re in a protected state park!

Or maybe they just know where the good food is?!
We are grilling our Wahoo now and plan to serve this Bahn Mi inspired relish alongside it with sautéed spinach. Wherever you are…whatever you’re up to….HAVE FUN! Eat a PHICKLE!

This recipe is easy to make your own. Change up the measurements to suit your taste and according to the vegetables you have available.
For our recipe: 3 cups cooked white corn (fresh is best but frozen is fine,) 10 of our Pickled Okra, 2 scallions (white and green parts of the stem,) 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 4 tbsp pickled okra juice. If you like spicy food…add a whole, sliced cayenne pepper like we did!
