This week’s blog topic, tacos!
The ubiquitous Mexican-style, hand-mobile, almost-sandwich that Tex-Mex took to different realms.
Who doesn’t like a good taco? Whether you like yours on a traditional yellow or white corn tortilla, a crispy-style American version or a soft taco, there is a world of things you can do with this delicious food idea.
In the old days, a taco was a tortilla filled with seasoned hamburger, lettuce and tomato, and a pretty simple hot sauce.
The latest version is the fish taco, which is a recipe that came from Baja California, Mexico, I am told, and what a good idea it is.
Use a not over-cooked filet of fish -- use anything from Mississippi catfish, to a locally caught filet of red fish -- well-seasoned, garnished with a spicy mayonnaise and all the veggies you like, and it will make for a delightful lunch. Try spicing your mayonnaise with chipotle peppers, or a good hot sauce, like Valentina. Talk about good!
