marlin fish steak fillet black garlic lemongrass sauce dentist chef recipe

A marlin or sailfish, family Istiophoridae, is a fish with an elongated body, a spear-like snout or bill, and a long rigid dorsal fin, which extends forward to form a crest. Its common name is thought to derive from its resemblance to a sailor’s marlinspike. The Atlantic blue marlin (Makaira nigricans) is a species of marlin endemic to the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic blue marlin (hereafter, marlin) feeds on a wide variety of organisms near the surface. It uses its bill to stun, injure, or kill while knifing through a school of prey, then returns to eat. Marlin is a popular game fish. The relatively high fat content of its meat makes it commercially valuable in certain markets.

In Korea, black garlic was introduced as a health product and it is still perceived as health supplementary food. Black Garlic is prized as a food rich in antioxidants and added to energy drinks, and in Thailand is claimed to increase the consumer’s longevity. It is also used to make black garlic chocolate.

It was written up in the Spring 2008 “Design and Living” special section of The New York Times as a “new staple” of modern cuisine (and incorporated into a recipe, “Black Garlic Roast Chicken”); the NYT author, Merrill Stubbs, noted it was being used by chef Bruce Hill of Bix Restaurant, San Francisco.Matthias Merges, executive chef at Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago, listed black garlic as one of his top five food finds in Restaurant News in December 2008. The rise of black garlic in the US was called “sensational,” and other trade publications besides Restaurant News have noticed the trend.

Many people acceptence is commonly known because fermented  black garlic is far away from the  the raw state. The taste is so light and the texture is buttery. When tou used to eat a pleasant slow roasted garlic, the fermented garlic is lighter even more. You can easily spread the black garlic over a tosted bread since it so soft in texture. Since i can access any ready made fermented black garlic, i search for how to make homemade black garlic in your kitchen. Ok, Then i though that i can cross my finger when i know the secret is to sealed it  vaccumly and let it fermented n relative high heat. The other principal is don’t let any humidity lefted the garlic. I made it by myself now, simple sealed any air by partially submerged the plactic containing garlic  in water and then twisted it and and make a thigh. From 20 cloves garlic, i submerged  1o garlic in water and drained  then thighly sealed. After that i put the garlic in the bottom space of my rice warmer. let it fermented for 40 days.
