  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

The plating of this dish is beautiful and appetizing but coming from a Hispanic family the recipe is no doubt different than what I'm used to eating and making. Although, it's interesting to me to see the way foods from other cultures are interpreted from other peoples perspective. Quick question...I've heard of agave before but what is Xagave?
