This past weekend Matt and I went to the International Wine and Food Festival downtown. It was so much fun! However, what I want to share with you is not the wine (to be frank I don’t clearly remember all of them), but one of the most delicious chocolate chip cookies I have ever eaten. Now this is a big deal because I am a serious cookie eater. Once I tried a sample I became hooked and had to buy a full size one.
It was soo soft and satisfying. They are made by in a little bakeshop called Sweet Teensy in Bethesda, MD. If you are looking for a delicious sweat treat, highly recommend this little shop! I hope I get to visit soon.
After the wine festival I was in the mood to eat something fancy after being surrounded by all these wine connoisseurs . Fish immediately came to my mind! Then I decided to make it taco style. Not that fancy, but it is fun!
Mahi Mahi Tacos
- Box of taco shells
- ½ lb off fresh or defrosted mahi mahi
- Cilantro pesto
- 2 T olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves diced
- 1 cup of chopped peppers and onions
Cook taco shells according to directions. Place Mahi Mahi on a greased foil sheet
cover with cilantro pesto.
Turn oven broiler on high and cook for about 15 minutes.
In the meantime heat a large skillet olive oil. Add garlic and sauté for 2 minutes, then add the pepper and onion mixture. Turn the skillet heat to medium low and cover to trap the heat, this will help to make the peppers and onions soft for about 5 minutes or until desired softness.
Usually I always have some grated cheese with the tacos, but I am saving the rest of my cheese for a different recipe. The cilantro pesto has a good amount of parmesan cheese, so that will give it a good flavor.
A great way to make this a 1,2,3 meal is to make a big batch of cilantro pesto and freeze it. Then all you have to do is defrost it over night in the refrigerator and then quickly broil it up with your fish.
Tacos are so much fun and super easy to make. They can be as simple or complex as you want. You can make them veggie or non-veggie, spicy or non-spicy, soft or hard, healthy or unhealthy, the list is endless! Dinner tonight would have went really well with a warm and soft whole wheat tortilla, but sometimes you want a little crunch!
While we were eating dinner we noticed it was a little quiet….. never a good thing!
