Spicy Basa with Grape Tomato Salsa
By Todd Johnson
DirectionsBasa is a Vietnamese white fish, similar to catfish. It has a mild flavor and according to Chef Miles is very versatile. You can find it in local fish markets.
Season the Basa filets liberally with your favorite blackening spice. Warm vegetable oil in a saute pan over medium high heat.
Add fish to pan. Keep it moving at first so it does not stick. After 3 minutes, carefully flip it over. Cook another 3-4 minutes.
To make the grape tomato salsa, mix tomato, grape tomatoes, red onion, green onion and pickled ginger in a large bowl. Add the lime juice and olive oil last.
Serve the Basa over a bed of rice, topped with the grape tomato salsa. Serves 2.

About a week ago I posted 3 pictures of 4 newly hatched Dark-Eyed Oregon Junco chicks. These are the same little ones, 8 days old now. They should fledge by June 1. It's amazing how quickly they grow. A week ago there was tons of room in the nest.
Each year since 1946, the Nisei Veterans Committee has held a Memorial Day Service to honor all who have died in service of their country, especially members of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, the most highly decorated unit for size and length of service in the history of the US Military, and the Military Intelligence Service, a group credited by General MacArthur's staff with shortening the War in the Pacific by two years
