Table 36 Cigars Chef's Table - Blackened Mahi MahiThis month we’re going to some lighter fare for the Chef’s Table.  However, this dish has plenty of flavor to stand up to the Fellowship blend.  The aggressive spice of the blackened fish is offset by a nutty, sweet salsa.  All of these flavors are also echoed in the cigar.  The delicacy of the fish is lost just a little in all the other flavors, but the meal is still excellent.
