Pretty good, If you notice in the pic I left the heads and tails on. Next time the heads and tails gotta go. I don’t care how pretty it is because it’s a not pretty getting them off at the end. Anyways, these Spanish Flies are based on next time without heads or tails.
Corn tortillas raw, toasted, and rarely grilled. In my opinion there are only a few tacos that require a corn tortilla like barbacoa. With corn wrapped fish tacos I always felt they added a blank taste and split up the delicate flavors in the guts of the taco. With flour tortilla wrapping a fish taco well, don’t speak to me.
Super simple clean cajun sandwich named after Blackbeard because. Pirates didn’t use fryers on the ship. I mean, can you imagine the on the job injuries with fryers sloshing hot grease all over the damn deck? Insurance would skyrocket…
Such a monstrosity I really don’t know what to call it. This is fried eggplant with a heavily parmigiana spiked batter stacked with quick brined grilled chicken along with mozzarella inserts. Made me dance so I figured I had better share.
Excellent Texas Butter Bean recipe I’m sure you’ll love. There’s no Texas magical ingredient making a butter bean a “Texas butter bean”. Dry bean recipes in Texas kind of lay along the lines of gumbo meaning use whatcha got. Ever heard “everything is bigger in Texas”?
This is a side dish or dip that is tweakable til ya can’t tweak no more. Full of textures and flavor I decided it needed it’s own home. That and it’s going to Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. The only thing I veered from my original recipe is the type of onion used. Normally I use purple for color and taste but at this time of year they are about like a blazing
Super good Jambalaya packed with trinity mainly onion, its flavor is awesome in here. I sliced the andouille long ways into 4 strips then cut cross ways matter fact, did the same to the celery. Cut them how you want I’m not gonna be there. I grilled the chicken tenders which gave a nice
Decided to roll a loin with a stuffing I’ve been rolling around in my head in an effort to finish out another recipe. I smoked this one lightly but it’s not necessary I was really also seasoning a new smoker…
Mentioned using boiled eggs in her chicken salad. Wut, I don’t know bout boiled egg in chicken salad… I was watching Yan Can Cook when I was around 10 years old and he said never mix eggs with
Made some enchiladas the other night that had great flavor but could use an extra tweak. Sometimes I do get tired of sauce and this was the night I was refusing it.
Another way to make some shrimp and grits different from the other one I did. Don’t remember how I did them but they were awesome. Well, these may be awesomer. They are awesomer in prep work that’s for sure.
Anyways, I went to visit him in Austin and he made a pico I thought was way too Cali. “Mango’s in pico, get the hell outa here”. One taste shut me up.. This is a recipe rob of what I remember from that life changing day.
Not going to call the rest of this recipe Chicken Tetrazzini because I already know I’ll be spell check’n tetrazzini throughout… This is a fantastic twist on Yard Bird Sketti I knew would be a IMO 4 but when tasted it
A little mix n match taco feast that’s quick when ya need it. These were made with high dollar all natural drug free hallelujah chicken breast. I don’t usually buy this type of bird but this time I caught it on sale.
Maybe I could have started before starving, who knows. It’s been in 2 more feedings since then and all I can say is Yaaas!!! More on the dadgum noodles down the line.
Smoking meat for Memorial Day I couldn’t help knocking out a couple 5 ribs. The fried oysters took more prep time but well worth the effort.
A couple three things to get right with gumbo is your roux, okra prep (if using), and my Aunt says you can never have too many onions. I agree and will jabber down the page.
These sammies are really good but I swung and missed a couple times making them. Confessions… If using fajita meat it is important to fillet all the membrane off the meat. A lot of cuts of beef will work with this but
Sort of a kitchen sink dinner it turned out better than expected. It’s a cross of Alfredo sauce and regular ole garlic butter sauce, but you won’t have much sauce at all when done. Small pot, large pan, and a plate yer good to go.
These jumbo grill Gulf Coast shrimp turned out mighty fine and very simple to cook. If you can’t find head on shrimp or gulf shrimp it’s fine to use what’s available. Honestly it’s a cleaner eating experience removing heads and tails when shelling.
Mango’s are already tasty around here and pretty easy to pick out the goods ones. Not much frying around here because of cleanup but when it happens it’s usually done with a tempura style batter tweaked with our typical twist.
Had never heard of but going to name my 1st born after because in my mind it tasted like a swimming crab. I posted an image of the dinner on a social and someone chimed in about the shady-ness of the Swai.
You could totally skip the shrimp part on this one if you were going to an office “bring a dish” party and you don’t like your boss. If you’re looking for a promotion add the shrimp… Better yet
In fact this was my 1st. They are pretty quick, easy, and cheap to build. Not sure what’s in true southern shrimp n grits but this one has cheddar, shrimp, garlic, green onion, and bacon. Wish I had made more.
Nice white sauce a little different from parmigiano typically used in Alfredo sauces. Used Oaxaca cheese, browned garlic, and shrimp pieces as a part of it. I usually never veer from parm but did this time and it worked out great.
Whatever reason my crab dealer doesn’t have pealed crab in stock. Suspect it’s a seasonal thing but looking around their stash I noticed “lobster head” meat. It was pretty cheap at about 6 bucks + for approximately 2 cups.
You can put all kinds of ingredients on a stick! Shrimp, chicken, and my favorite flat iron steak. The rice idea came from a friend’s pork chop slow cooker recipe that looks ugly as hell but taste fantastic.
Since Biddy was born I haven’t seen fried berd for a while. Very easy cheap dinner with a little planning so time isn’t the issue. All this was baked together except for the pineapple.
Losing time, short on supplies, and not interested in going to the grocery was the inspiration for this simple taco dinner. Just grilled fajitas, homemade tortillas, cheese and a shot of Irish Salsa. Irish Salsa is our problem child
Rich steak, crab cake, and shrimp dinner made for special days or crappy ones if it works. Sometimes I do recipes a little more complex because I have the time. This rich surf n turf is one of my favorites.
