okra-shrimp-mushrooms

We had this meal on the first hot day in Montreal: in April! I was absolutely basking in my muggy office, until they turned on the air conditioning (curses).

Anyway, this nice, light, quick meal was appropriate for the day. The shrimp, okra, and mushrooms were boiled in soy sauce, lemon juice, white wine, rice wine vinegar, and dashi. I can’t say enough how good it feels to eat natural food like this, with the flavours perfectly enhanced with simple ingredients. (As a side note, okra now has a firmly established spot on my roster of favourite foods. Despite the tendency of the seeds to stick in my teeth.)
