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… 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. 

Egg foo yung

  To me it’s all about using what you have to make an easy meal. This turned out more than good plus I think it was not over loaded with calories.

Cooked fish around 1-2 cups broken into pieces 1 cup cooked rice 1 cup frozen peas 1 teaspoon sesame seed oil 2 tablespoon oyster sauce 6 eggs Oil to fry in or cooking spray for less calories My measurements for fish and rice are not exact, but you get the idea. Everything else I measured.  Break up the fish in a medium size bowl, add rice and mix so it is about fifty fifty with a bit more fish than rice. Put in everything else except eggs. Mix well……in a separate bowl crack eggs and beat them, pour over the fish and rice mixture. Stir well. Heat a skillet add oil to coat the bottom or spray with …

Pesto fish

Hi, remember the pesto post? Now is the time for tons of basil to be available. This is a simple wonderful way to enjoy fish a different way.  White fish fillets ( all depends on how many are eating ) Swai, tilapia, cod, all work well.  Pesto ( see previous post) Lemon juice,  one lemon is good more if you have a lot of fillets salt Parmisian cheese if desired Heat oven to 350. Foil line a cookie sheet and place wire racks on it. They do not have to be inside, hanging over the edges is ok. You just want the fish off the foil.  Clean and dry the fish fillets, spray wire racks or use butter to coat them. Put fillets on racks. Spoon pesto on top of fish. Kinda thick if you like or thin, we like ours kinda thick. After all the fillets are coated ( smeared on the top in a better term) and pesto is used up squeeze lemon juice all over the fillets and sprinkle with salt. If …
