I'm going to go ahead and post the recipe but I'm not going to get to make it before the challenge ends unfortunately so no picture. My inspiration for this was a recipe posted on a local grocery store's ad but I'm making some big changes.
2 (around 6 oz each) white fish fillets...
I wanted something a little different for my fish tacos tonight than just ordinary Mexican crema. I could not find a recipe that represented the flavors I wanted, so I created my own. It was wonderful! Tangy, slightly sweet and with a touch of heat, the flavor profile of this crema...
This followed the same process as my previous beef jerky recipe, but the seasoning was different. The extra honey tempered the spiciness, giving it a rounded flavor. The tequila and lime notes are subtle, but noticeable.

An easy way to jazz up rice. You can use lemon in place of lime but I think lime looks prettier, to contrast with the yellow.

Fresh turmeric root

I don't remember making something before where I was so completely satisfied. I think I tend to think of salads as something basic that doesn't require much in the way of culinary chops. But, this changed my mind. The dressing has a nuttiness that works so well with the acidity of the lime. And...
Kaffir lime is a very bitter lime with a knobbly skin. The flesh is not generally used, but the peel and leaves have an intense, heady perfume. You can use either the leaves or the dried peel here. The fresh leaves are available in some supermarkets in the UK, or you can buy them frozen...
This was part of last nights dinner. I used it as a basting sauce over the skirt steak while cooking and as a serving sauce with the fajitas. Mojo made with limes is probably the most popular in Cuban cooking. Cubans probably would exclude the jalapenos, but I likes them.
I love when I have a vision of a recipe I want to build, and I explore my way to something new. I learned a lot with this one, mainly that raw coconut won’t be puréed with what I have available in my kitchen. After stubbornly trying to smooth it out, I finally decided to strain it.
