UAL Biz Class Dinner: Cod
Hey this was pretty good. The meal started with "sauteed herb shrimp, honey glazed ham, and zucchini, leek and feta cheese frittata with an orange vinaigrette," and unlike previous experiences with their shrimp, tonight's was decently fresh. I couldn't complain about the garlic ranch dressing on the salad either.
Next we moved onto the "herb-crusted cod fillet with fresh tomato basil sauce; orzo risotto with vegetables and stir-fried sugar snap peas." This was very impressively fresh and tender, while the orzo had a mildy lemon-y yet rich taste. Rock on - this was really good. It was so good that I didn't even bother with that tomato basil sauce - it just ended up overpowering the herbs on the cod. The peas were a bit soggy, but it didn't matter in light of how good the fish was. I'm glad I didn't order the usual filet mignon, which they usually offer every time on this trip (today's came in some "oven-roasted garlic sauce").
A little Danish blue and gouda cheese to close the meal never hurt either. I also grabbed a bowl of instant "Chinese Noodles" later for a snack; they were a bit bland, but adding a little chili sauce helped.
