Evening ladies and gents,


I've been sort of switching things up and getting a little break from meat. Here are two recent cooks.

First one is called Aguachiles and I got this recipe from Tonybel on here. Pretty easy but real refreshing. It's basically raw shrimp cooked in lime juice. That's all.

Shrimp to be peeled and deveined

Lime juice, cilantro, serrano or jalapeno chiles in the blender

Shrimp added to the mixture along with sliced red onions and cucumbers to "cook" in the fridge for about four hours.

In the meantime uncooked tortillas fried

Next up was the catch of the day, shrimp from Santa Barbara. While washing them you could still smell the ocean. :thumb:

All female with roe

Since it was so fresh I drained some of the water from the roe by using butcher paper

And split them into little round, added ponzu, sake, olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice and gobbled them up. So farkin' gooooood!

Tuna collars and Chilean sea bass (kind of screwed the sea bass up but still was good as I usually will pan sear it)

Washed it down with some adult bevs

Thanks Melissa! I've been lazy with the blackstone and haven't used it in a while. These are the spot shrimp that sushi places serve by deep frying the head and the body is usually served raw on rice. It's got a sweet taste to it unlike regular shrimp hence the name sweet shrimp. I actually took the brains out but they brains are edible. I can't have enough of the stuff.
