Every single yr round Easter, I all of the time suppose of Cuban taste food. I recognize I’ve stated this many occasions now, but my household used to spend many Easters in south Florida with my grandparents. A lot of occasions we could head to Miami for day journeys and in case you recognize one thing about Miami, than you recognize it’s filled with Cuban meals and culture.
I was simply a child once we used to go, so unfortunately, my meal of possibility was often one thing that consisted of hamburger, fries, and a chocolate shakes, many occasions from Johnny Rockets alongside the seaside (ahh, can I please cross back? This time I’ll cross for grown-up Cuban food!). Some of my favorites stories are these spent with my family, soaking up the Florida sun and consuming method too many mangos and pineapples. We all of the time had the greatest time, and I really sense tremendous fortunate to have these memories. My grandpa could take us on boat journeys down to Key West or the Bahamas. We’d swim within the ocean, cross snorkeling, and do all types of fun and adventurous stuff. One yr we even ventured off to an deserted island that Disney used to park their cruise ships at. It was like a scene out of Jurassic Park, I stored prepared for dinosaurs to roar. The island regarded as though it was instantly abandoned. Jet skis reachable for apartment simply left behind, tiki huts watching in a position for users to stroll up to, indicators indicating to passengers of all of the diversified puts at the island the place fun was to be had. I’m considering we maybe visited there in about 2002. My grandpa stated that Disney deserted the lodge as the waters surrounding the island had been too shallow. It was unquestionably one among the coolest issues ever. If you’re interested in studying additional on it, I discovered this weblog publish on it. When we visited it ought to have been now not too lengthy after it was deserted simply due to the fact issues nonetheless regarded new. And now you spot why these journeys are a few of my greatest memories, right?
PS. has anybody performed at the big chess forums on Miami Beach? My brothers and I absolutely did, and of course we thought they had been so cool.
Anyway, I all of the time have a topical attitude when this time of yr rolls around, and my meals absolutely displays that. I’m certain you guys have maybe noticed, what with all of the mango and pineapple sneaking their method into so many recipes these days. Can’t assist it, they’re my favorite.
SO, this salmon! It’s so jam-packed with contemporary flavors and citrus. Light, but nonetheless hearty, and oh so fairly with that tomato avocado salsa on top. I wasn’t certain about posting this today, but then I remembered that Friday is Good Friday and it simply appeared to make complete sense.
Cuban taste meals is often loaded with citrus, so that’s what I did right the following with this salmon. The salmon is soaked in a fast marinade of orange, lime juice, somewhat garlic, and a few spices. It’s simply what they name Mojo sauce, but with somewhat additional warmth and taste introduced via me. It is SO good. And properly this absolutely isn’t necessary, I love to end the grilled salmon off with a small pat of butter. The butter melts down over the fish and creates a delicious sauce. <–I extremely suggest it.
And then, simply due to the fact I am salsa obsessed (there is a complete salsa web page within the Half Baked Harvest Cookbook), I had so as to feature somewhat tomato avocado salsa. YUM. Not gonna lie, in case you desire to simply seize a bag of chips and cross to metropolis in this salsa, I could now not blame you, it’s type of difficult now not to. My secret? Using tremendous candy cherry tomatoes rather of an incredible tomatoes. I all of the time have bad luck with big tomatoes and a lot favor utilizing cherry tomatoes. They’re chunk size, loopy candy and right for salsa. Plus, one thing with avocado and lime is all of the time a nice thought in my book!
So what do you think? Good Friday dinner? Maybe Easter brunch? Either way, it’s a ought to make. It’s quick, healthy, and packed filled with so many delicious flavors.
Oh, and whereas I didn’t upload pineapple to this salsa, I suppose it could be fairly freaking good. Just sayin’.
Random Wednesday Question: what do you and your households do for Easter? I’m death to recognize what traditions you guys have. Do you cross on vacation? Visit relatives? Have an incredible brunch? What’s the deal?!
