iCookonboard turns 2, Yay!!!
Thank you so much for all your Support!!!
Life Onboard is tough, rough and isolated… At least, that was before!
Lucky me, I have you to share my adventures onboard. Thanks for your time…
Now please join me as I cook and dine with my crew…
Today’s meal is very special and one of the best the sea has to offer. As a cook, every minute counts. A dish like this that is ready in few minutes is something I love to prepare.
If you haven’t tried Green Mussels Adobo before, I suggest you give it a try. I recommend you have it with an ice cold beer. “Wish I have a couple of beers in my fridge!” =)
Big thanks to Captain Dante Cruza of M/V Forest Hill for this recipe.
