Snake creek fun

We had a good sail from everglades city to snake creek. We anchored off the channel by a no wake sign. I decided we did not have to have a salad but a light dinner was in order.

I sauteed 2 chicken breasts in a special oil Jeff's mom and I got when we went to an olive oil and vinegar shop. A little bit goes a long way. So I used cooking spray cooked the chicken then drizzled on the plate some of the orange habanero oil and mixed it with the cranberry pear vinegar. When the chicken was done I placed it on the plate and rolled it in the mixture. The smell was divine. I wish I had sliced it and then added the mixture. Next time. In the same pan I added sliced garlic broccoli rabe and some of the blood orange olive oil. That cooked down and on the plate it went. I salt and peppered the whole thing before serving. And voila super easy dinner for 2 and only one pan to clean. We could have had a starch or rice or quinoa or Israeli couscous but I really did not want to heat up the cabin. So while it might be bland on the plate there were no leftovers! I suggest going really easy on the habanero oil. It can over power the meal for sure.

We were really lucky as our friends Eric and Kim had invited us to a crawfish boil. I had never been to one so again a first for me!

 I enjoyed the claws more than the tails. Sorry to all the  Louisiana folks but I could not get the hang of sucking out the tails so I pealed them like shrimp deveined them and ate them. Yum. I did love the claw meat so sweet! Worth effort for sure. Thanks folks for the delish experience I loved it!
