For one of Scott’s Christmas gifts, I got us a weekend away in Easton, MD for New Years Eve weekend.

It’s a cute little Chesapeake Bay town with lots of seafood, antiques and quaint everything. Our hotel was gorgeous. (I promise, Side Dish goodness is a part of this!)

And they had an awesome restaurant with a heated outdoor patio. Which was great because I got to drink champagne outside in December without freezing to death.

We walked around, hung out and checked out some great restaurants.

One of which was Mason’s, a local farm to table restaurant with an emphasis on local seafood as well. I got a white fish (forget which kind exactly) on top of the creamy artichoke, leek, and tomato side dish that was amazing. I’ve been fantasizing about it inappropriately for almost a month now like a weirdo.

So I recreated it for you guys. It’s crazy simple, super healthy and insanely delicious.

  1. Coconut cream as in the thick part of the coconut milk in a can?
