Earlier this week the temperature was 78°. That’s right: seventy-eight degrees. Phew! Louisiana weather is nothing if not a daily surprise. Last night the low was 25°. That is a 50+ degree swing. Nothing new for us, though. I know not to get too excited about a sunny, warm day in January because the next is likely to be bitterly cold and gloomy. It’s just one of those things you learn to live with and you adjust accordingly. And honestly, I would rather deal with the surprises than with 3 or 4 months of constant cold and gloom; so….I’m not complaining! :)
I recently had this recipe published in a local home & garden magazine. A friend mentioned to me a few nights ago that she made it and was very pleased with the outcome. (I always love hearing feedback from anyone who actually tries my recipes, don’t you?!) :)
Anyway, our conversation got me thinking of this particular recipe and wondering if I had ever published it here. It’s been on my Facebook page for over a year; but funny enough, I had not posted it to my little blog! Silly me. I get so caught up in things that I forget what I’ve done and what I’ve only imagined I’ve done! LOL
Ever since eating the most delicious fish tacos in Mexico last month, I have been wanting to try them at home. Compadres is a small cantina on Isla Mujeres that we found our last day there. Fresh Chilean Sea Bass was perfectly seasoned and pan seared then served on a flour tortilla with pico de gallo and sliced avocado. Delicious.
I couldn’t replicate the beach or the ocean view or find fresh chilean sea bass, but I was pretty confident I could give the tacos a fair shot.
…Not bad… (licks fingers and lips) ;)
You know the old Hank Williams’ song: ”Jambalaya, crawfish pie, fillet gumbo..” Singing the virtues of life on the bayou and all the fabulous food created by the cajuns. I’m so proud to be a part of this heritage, and never more so than when it comes to food. Now that I’m awaking from my vacation haze, I’ve been thinking of recipes to share; and more and more of the dishes from my own family keep popping up and inspiring me to get back into the kitchen
As most of my recipes are, this is a quick dish that’s super easy for a week night. I had never actually tried to make this before, so I was a bit apprehensive at the outcome. (I had all these ingredients on hand and REALLY didn’t want to make a trip to the grocery for a Plan B in case this was a failure!)
No worries, because it was actually really good. And so…I pass it on to you. ☺
I’ve never been all that into oysters. Raw, ok every now and then. But cooked, they just were never my cup o’ tea. I’ve tried them in gumbo…No, thank you. Fried…ich No thank you. (except for the succulent fried oysters at Janohn’s—mmmmm!) On a salad…No. On a po’boy….No. Charbroiled…. Wait a second.
I love leftovers. Sometimes they make the best meals. And always they make dinner preparation easier.
Two nights ago we grilled a couple of large tuna steaks. They were so big that one divided between my husband and myself was perfectly sufficient for dinner. That meant that we had a whole, very large tuna steak left over.
What to do? What to do?
