I am not looking for to rip off anyones ideas thats not how I am. I was just asking for some basic suggests and I would bill of that

Ex. You could say do an encrusted fish and I would choose what to encrust it in and what sauce to serve it with.

I would never want to take someone elses idea because then there would be nothing for me to be proud of

We used to do a filet mignon, rub it with Dijon, and dip in a bowl of multi-color peppercorns. Cook that side first on the saute side, not the grill side, flip, cook for a bit, and finish in the oven. Some sort of Jack Daniel's sauce might be good.

We would also take one of those Japanese curly shredder machines and do a potato. Coat a piece of grouper with some Dijon mustard, wrap in the potatoes, saute on both sides and finish in oven if necessary, top with a mustard beurre blanc. An almond-encrusted grouper would be nice too.

An avocado salsa (take pretty much the same ingredients as guacamole but leave them big - sliver the onions though) and top a piece of grilled salmon with it.

So we had a choice between pork and a cornish hen and everyone chose pork sense its a little easier then the cornish hen so i decided to be different and cook the hen. I did a pecan and roasemary encrusted hen stuffed with apples. served over peppered rice with carmalized carrots and an apple juice sauce.

my down sides were that the rice was a little undercooked and the hen was a little over cooked. I am an idiot and cooked the hen at 325 for a longer time and not at 400-450 for a short time. I forgot the smaller the bird the higher the temperature and the less time.

I would have given myself a C+ because I was so dissappointed in myself but they said I was being to hard on myself and they gave me a B+. Although they gave me a cornish hen so I can try again at home and get better.

You learned something - and you did GREAT! I'm proud of you. Nice choice and good to be different too! You paired the flavors well.
