My go-to late-summer recipe is my Minute Steak Recipe, which is literally done in minutes on a hot grill, and served alongside stewed, grilled tomatoes, and tempura-fried peach slices. When it's complemented by a cocktail like warmed apple cider with whiskey or warmed brandy with a pinch of cinnamon, you’ll almost be excited to say goodbye to summer and welcome fall.

Tempura Trout on Fried Green Tomatoes and Creamed Corn
This dish is a twist on a classic Southern staple, fried green tomatoes. Frying trout in tempura batter keeps it airy and crispy, and using fresh kernels for the creamed corn keeps the flavors fresh and light. This style of cooking is typical of the dishes we serve at Inovasi, which draw upon flavors from around the world to make innovative versions of familiar dishes. See all corn recipes.

  Batter-fried fish tacos as we know them in the United States originated in the 1930s in Ensenada, Mexico, home to a large Japanese immigrant population who worked in the fishing industry there. Along with their skills as fishermen, the Japanese also brought with them the technique for tempura—deep-frying fish in batter. The Mexicans adapted this technique to make tacos, using young shark, a very inexpensive local catch that held up beautifully when fried. These tacos are best served immediately as fried foods get soggy if left to sit. If you can’t find shark, substitute a firm, moist white fish like wahoo, tilapia, or mahi mahi.

Unlike heavily armored grasshoppers, beetles, and other land anthropods, tarantulas wear an outer layer of chitin that is comparatively thin and pliable. That's right: their eight muscular limbs are chewy, not crunchy. As such, the plentiful meat on one of these animals is more accessible and, hence, the makings for a savory spider soirée.
