Taco Tuesday? What about taco any day? I mean who doesn’t like a fun night just chit-chatting with family or friends (or on your own, no judgment here!) munching on quite-messy-but-delicious and mind-blowing-but-enlightening tacos, right? Okay, obviously, I’m a taco lover here. How can you not, with just the basics of taco seasoning, taco meat, […]
Give your chicken bbq an Asian spin with this Filipino favorite. Works great in tacos, or even more traditionally with a side of rice and some pickled papaya. A widely popular dish in the Philippines, chicken inasal is merely a local take on chicken bbq typically served with rice and a side of pickled papaya […]
The flavors of the pork rely on the dry-rub used for this recipe. Definitely worth trying and would work well with other meats as well. Great for the smoker or the bbq too! This for me is the best way to enjoy pulled pork. Those crunchy taco shells just add the perfect texture contrast to […]
Did you know that the adobo, a dish Filipinos are well-known for, is of Spanish and/or Portuguese origin? Though entirely different from the Spanish Adobo of preserving meat in a dry-rub of spices, early Spanish conquerors termed the local Philippine stew as adobo. Filipino adobo is basically a meat dish stewed in a vinegar and spice broth. Though variations came up across the different Philippine regions, the staple ingredients always included a meat as a main component, vinegar, garlic, and black peppercorns.
One of my favorite summer delicacies is a juicy ripe mango, and here I have paired it in salsa format with blackened salmon, which is pan-seared with a savory spice rub. The combination of sweet and savory is a definite winner, and it is a super simple recipe to boot!
Oops. I forgot that these were supposed to be crispy. I was on a shrimp kick this week and have been turning out shrimp recipes so just went ahead and made these without using breaded shrimp. They still turned out awesome! Even better than the pineapple shrimp tacos I made yesterday. To be honest though, they probably would have been better with some battered shrimp. I guess I’ll have to concede that the non-breaded version is healthier!
Big fan of pineapple here, so I was ready to try these pineapple shrimp tacos from Taste of Home. The ingredients are relatively simple, and the idea is easy enough to remember that you can knock these out on a weeknight pretty quickly without going back to the recipe for too many instructions. I was able to complete everything in 24 minutes flat!
