Baja style fish or shrimp….

Love fish….love shrimp…..tired of fried or everyday grilled…..around 40 years ago, while eating out in Newport Beach California I ate at a restaurant…..I think it was called the “crab catcher”….they made the most amazing grilled sea food with tons of flavor; Of course it was trade secrets so I went home and tried to duplicate the seasonings…..do not know if I did but we are pretty darn close. It is made with things you should already have in your house….. Butter Paprika  Season salt Fish or shrimp Clean your seafood item. Start grill, weither it is outside or indoors. Melt butter and have seasonings ready. When grill is ready dip or brush butter on the seafood. Shake lightly season salt and then paprika on all sides. Grill for a few minutes or until done. That is it! Instantly you will think you are in Baja enjoying lush drinks on the beach and thinking how could it get any better. As always we hope you enjoy.

If not the recipe is on line.  Before starting anything make the white sauce: mix the sour cream and tarter sauce together. Sometimes I do this in the morning or night before. About …
