Tacos De Pescado (Grilled Fish Tacos)

Tacos De Pescado (Grilled Fish Tacos)

I just realized that lately, I prepare tacos at least ones a week, sometimes even more often.
Of course, this makes perfect sense, since they are very tasty, easy to prepare and the possible variations are endless. I have them for any meal of the day, breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack.
My favorite taco is……..always the one I presently prepare and eat, no matter if they are soft or crisp, contain lots of “stuff” or just a few basic ingredients. They can contain beef, pork, fish, crab, shrimp, chicken, duck, chorizo, egg, guacamole, refried beans, shredded lettuce, shredded cabbage, onions, chiles, cheese, salsa Mexicana, salsa verde, black beans and a myriad of other stuff. As long as it is tasty, anything (well, almost anything), goes. 🙂
For today’s tacos, I used fresh cod fillets I got this morning at the “International Market”, a lonely Haas Avocado which was sitting all but forgotten by herself on a shelf in the pantry, and leftover red cabbage slaw, to which I added a bit of kernel corn . The result was, dare I say, as with all my tacos, smashing 🙂

Crab-Stuffed Twice Baked Potato

This  is my answer to a few request’s I received for unusual potato dishes.
If you use extra large potatoes as I have, I suggest that you bake them for two hours at 410 F. They will have browned slightly inside the skin and have a very different taste and texture than if you cook them only for the usual one hour.

Chirashizushi (Scattered Sushi) (ちらし寿司

>
>
I am  trying today to continue with my quest for a healthier living.  After a substantial, healthy breakfast,  I decided that sushi will be light and healthy enough. Usually I would have been right, but there was a problem – I, as usual, was so looking forward to it that I prepared way too much and therefore ate too much, as usual 😦
But boy, was it worth the sin 🙂

The “Chirashizushi” included:

Lobster, crayfish, crab legs, octopus, mussels, shiitake mushrooms, avocado, cucumber, nori, black sesame seeds, egg, scallion, sushi rice.

Egg Salad With Shrimp & Caviar

>
>
Last  night I dreamed of the time when as kid’s my brother and I were eating egg salad, which at that time (50+ years ago) was a great treat for us because of the shrimp or crayfish and trout or lump fish caviar my mom used to add to the salad. So after I woke up, during the whole morning I kept thinking about those happy times and although I can not re-create the happiness of a mostly carefree child hood, I can most certainly re-create the dish that reminds me of it. So here we go,  “Tilly’s egg salad with shrimp and caviar” 🙂

.

Wodka & Wine Flatbread ”

If you wonder about the name of this dish ? –
Last night at around 1.30am, after  “a bit”  of vodka and wine, my friend Darryl “demanded” food. Here is what I could muster :
Freshly baked flatbread with salame, mascarpone, egg, mushroom, banana peppers, sriracha and grated asiago cheese.
It might not have been pretty but ist sure hit the spot 🙂

Bon Appetit !  Cheers !   Life is Good !

Bucatini, Bologna, Tomato, Asiago & Egg ” Midnight Snack In Simpleland “

.
.
Yesterday  I had a very long workday without lunch or dinner. I finally came home at 9.00pm (I left the house at 5.00am, after two hours of walking Bella, breakfast, checking e-mail, etc) .
First thing’s first, so I poured myself a glass of merlot and sat down to relax a few minutes before I wanted to move on to do what needs to be done. However, I woke up three hours later at around midnight, because Bella brutally stubbed me with her nose, demanding to finally be taken on her walk. When we got back it was past 1.00am and I was famished. I wanted to have something quick, uncomplicated, substantial and tasty, but not too heavy or fatty. A quick inspection of the fridge and cup board revealed, amongst other goodies:
Bucatini, salted butter, bologna, aged asiago, greek yoghurt, eggs, tomatoes and scallions.
Usually and traditionally, one would saute the bologna and tomatoes in fat before adding the other ingredients.
But I wanted to have a different, “fresher” taste. So, here is how it went:
I cooked the pasta, drained it (reserved some of the cooking water). I chopped the tomatoes, sliced the scallions, grated the asiago, whisked the eggs with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Then I mixed all the ingredients over low heat including a bit of the cooking water and cooked it until the eggs set. The result was a revelation of how the addition or absence of one single cooking step (sauteing) can completely alter the taste and texture of a dish. This version is actually my new favorite when it comes to pasta with bologna. The freshness of the bologna (must be of very good quality) and the slight acidity of the yogurt and raw tomatoes make it a new, much appreciated dish in my arsenal of pasta dishes.

Bon Appetit !   Long Live The Midnight Snack ! 🙂

“Breakfast Of Champions # 15 ” – Scrambled Eggs…..

.
.
Don’t  you just hate it when you go to bed real late because you don’t have to work the next day and you look forward to sleeping-in in the morning, just to have your sweet dreams shattered by your inner alarm clock  at your regular get-up time (3.30am).  Why does my inner alarm clock not work when I forget to set my electronic alarm or when there is a power-out during the night ???  Anyway, since I was up and was going to watch a movie  ( Amour, by Michael Haneke ), a good breakfast was in order :

” Scrambled egg’s with naan, greek yogurt, Argentinian chorizo and sauted grape tomatoes, corn and peppers in herbed  garlic butter

Good start for the last day of 2012   🙂

Have a great day !   Live is Good !

P.S.
Make sure you cook your eggs in the rendered chorizo fat after sauteing the sausages.
They’ll  loose a bit of their bright color but they gain so much flavor  🙂
