I was just reminiscing last week with one of my BFFers about that one time I was pregnant with my favorite little girl and I couldn't do Mexican food. I survived on pasta and watermelon. And doughnuts. What a tragedy, because now, I survive on Mexican and watermelon. And doughnuts. One of my favorite recipes here is my Spicy Caribbean Shrimp and Mango Quinoa Salad. I took that shrimp and added a pineapple relish with pineapple, red bell pepper, cilantro, ginger, red pepper flakes, and coconut . . .
I've had this recipe rolling around in my head for a while. About a year ago my family and I moved from southern California to Nevada. Who's with me when I say that socal has THE BEST Mexican food? Especially Baja Mexican food! So, with that being said - I have majorly been craving a good Baja fish taco! Tilapia is a really mild fish. For those of you who don't care for seafood - this is a stepping stone fish. It isn't very strong and it can easily be flavored to taste however you . . .

Blend up handfuls of fresh herbs, red wine vinegar, lime, garlic, red pepper flakes, oil, and some salt and pepper and you have the freshest little condiment ever. Bursting with flavor, I tell ya. If it's . . .

Hello there, seafood lovers. I was making dinner today and mid-meal realized this recipe is pretty bomb and that I needed to share it. Seriously, if you've got a hankering for some shrimpy Mexican goodness, make these quick little healthy tacos. Tomatoes, tomatillos, poblano peppers, onion, garlic are all cooked until soft in a little butter, add plenty of spices for a burst of flavor, then a quick cook of the shrimp. They won't disappoint.
