Oceans Organic - Private Seafood Dinner in Cape Town

When we were in Cape Town we discovered a new service called Oceans Organic, which provides a full seafood meal, cooked with fresh, local, organic products, prepared for you in the comfort of your own home (or in our case our rental house, Bingley Place). It was absolutely fantastic!

We called them only two days in advance and they were very willing to work with us on a meal that would suit all of our different tastes (i.e. Paul and Rich being much more adventurous than Ruby and myself). There was discussion of sea urchins, but we decided on fresh caught fish on the braai (bbq).

At 5 o'clock on the dot (they come to prepare about an hour before you want your dinner) Bianca and Chris arrived with all the preparations and two bottles of local wine! On the menu was yellowfin tuna, freshly caught the day before. They really take their promise of local and organic to the next level, the 50kg fish was not caught on a line but by spear fishing!

Chris prepared the tuna steaks and the ceviche appetizer while Bianca prepared the salads and desserts. We watched them work their magic, and they told us where the local produce, oils, and wine came from.

They set the table, lit the candles, cleaned up the kitchen and left us to enjoy the wonderful spread!

The meal included:
- yellowfin tuna ceviche starter
- broccoli, green beans, seasonal figs, toasted almond salad
- papaya, avocado, red onion, and pomegranate salad
- local cheese and cracker plate
- main course was grilled yellowfin tuna marinated in a sesame, soya, and honey sauce
- chocolate mouse with banana loaf
- Druk My Niet C68 Chenin Blanc 2012 wine

Dinner before, dinner after, YUM!

Everything was absolutely delicious! If anyone is going to be in Cape Town, I highly, highly recommend having Bianca and Chris cook you a meal! You won't regret it!
