Fried Camembert With Avocado Salad, Salsa Verde, And Crisp Romaine Leaves

Fried Camembert With Avocado Salad, Salsa Verde, And Crisp Romaine Leaves

>
>
Seems like everybody loves fried camembert, yet few folks actually prepare it at home. Which is a mystery to me, since it is really quick and easy to prepare and it is versatile – it can be served as an appetizer, a main course or as a snack. Best of all, it is very economical. (After all, I am a poor retiree 😦  ).
In olden times, we used just one coat of simple breading. However, nowadays I like to use panko crumbs, which requires double breading. The texture is of course very different so you might want to experiment which one of the two versions you prefer. They are both great, it’s just a matter of personal preference.

Tostadas Al Pescado (Fish Tostadas)

>
>
When  you decide to make tostadas, the biggest decision will be if you want to prepare  your own tortillas and fry them to a flat crisp or buy packaged tostada shells, which you can buy in any supermarket nowadays’, most of excellent quality. After that, the most sensible thing is to put the tostadas on a platter in the center of the table, arrange all the toppings in bowls around them and let everybody assemble their own favorite. Traditionally, refried beans, cotija cheese, a simple salsa and sometimes seafood are the main ingredients/toppings.
But, as you can imagine, tostadas, like most other dishes with a long culinary history, have evolved and advanced to be more adventurous and varied. Anything you fancy is allowed to grace your tostada, as long as it is delicious and makes you smile 🙂
Refried beans, shredded lettuce, sour cream, any cheese, any seafood, sausage, meat, grilled vegetables, any salsa, guacamole, etc, etc.
I happened to have some fresh Swai fillets at hand as well as white cabbage for a tasty cabbage slaw.  Added some guacamole, salsa Mexicana and a bit of sour cream and BINGO ! – exiting lunch served in a snap 🙂

” Pork Belly Tacos “

.
.
Híjole ! Que sabroso !    🙂 

This is one of my versions of pork belly tacos. I like the texture and taste better
than the usual carnita preparation. Simmer the belly slowly in salted water until
tender, then saute in olive oil with garlic and onion.
When golden brown, remove from heat and add sour orange juice. I also used
sour orangejuice together with olive oil and salt and pepper for the salad dressing.

Bon Appetit ! Life is Good !
