Archive for June, 2012
It’s hot here in Utah, in the triple digits in a lot of places, dry as a bone, lots of wind…
Pretty much the whole state is on fire..
Not here yet though. Those aren’t, however, rain clouds in these shots, it’s smoke. We have had smoke and ash all the way up here from fires burning a long long ways away, that’s how big these fires are. Enough smoke to make my eyes water and my throat sore…
A lot of people both here and in Colorado have already lost their homes, barns, livestock. It’s a bad situation and it’s only June, the real fire problems are usually later in the summer. There isn’t any relief in sight yet, the weather forecast is just more of the same, hot, dry windy. My heart hurts for those poor people who are in the middle of these fires.
I’m going on vacation next week, I hope my house is still here when I get back!

Speecy, spicy deliciousness!
1 lb white flaky fish
1/3 cup grapeseed or canola oil
1 smoked jalapeno (or 2 t Ancho chili powder)
1 fresh jalapeno
1/3 cup cilantro
juice of 1 lime
1 cup plain bread crumbs
additional Ancho chili powder to taste
1/2 red onion
few squirts of chipotle Tabasco sauce (to taste)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 t Mexican oregano
3 cloves garlic
4 large ripe tomatoes
white, mild cheese (optional)
Start by mixing together the oil, lime juice, jalapenos, and cilantro
Pour over the fish, making sure it is well mixed and let marinate for 15 or 20 minutes
In the meantime, put the red onion, tabasco sauce, cilantro, oregano, garlic, tomatoes and jalapeno in a blender and blend until smooth
Dredge the fish in the bread crumbs mixed with a little more Ancho Chili Powder and fry in a hot skillet with a little oil until crispy and brown
warm the tortillas and build the taco using the sauce, cabbage, cilantro, onion and fish. Sometimes I add a little fresh Mexican cheese if I have it, or if I get carried away with the chili powder (which usually happens), a little sour cream to offset the heat.
If you want to open a bottle of wine, my choice would be Sauvignon Blanc, but I just had a nice cold beer with a slice of lime with these and it was great!
Happy summer eating….

I have another cute label/wonderful red wine for you to try!
It’s got blackberry and vanilla notes and is very smooth. Long lovely finish…
I really loved this one!
It was a great sipping wine, but would be lovely with just about anything off the grill this summer!Posted in She Drinks! | 3 Comments »
