Christmas Dinner

We had a traditional Ozzie Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve. Not turkey but seafood.

Cconsidering that Christmas falls in the summer in this part of the world, raw oysters, fresh tuna and salmon sashimi for our starters, grilled king prawns and lobsters as the main courses, seem more appropriate and lighter than a roasted turkey with all the trimmings. We had sides of green beans and mash of sweet potato, pumpkin and potato. Dessert was a caramel mud cake. I think we did well, improvising with various marinades we found in the pantry - garlic/coriander butter and the masala paste.

We were contented without feeling like we had stuffed our faces. A good gauge in my books.
