Avocado Shrimp Ceviche-Estillo Sarita

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Avocado”. Avocados are one of my favourite fruits and I have made many dishes with it so I had to dig deep into my brain parts to think of something to make. Then I saw this recipe and I was glad I did because of how easy and delicious it was. Ceviche is one of those dishes that I love, not really difficult to make, and yet I very rarely have it. To be the fact that food can be cooked in citric acid is so interesting. That and yeast, I cannot wrap my mind around yeast. Confession time, I might have bought martini glasses just for this dish. I have been making more drinks lately so they will go to good use though. Just more excuses for martinis.

Mexican Meatball Subs

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Tailgate”. I used to go to tailgates all of the time until they got banned in my city for a few reasons. That being said, it has not stopped me from enjoying some delicious tailgating food.

It is really hard to screw up a meatball sub. Make meat balls add stuff. These were no different but I do have to say that they were much better after sitting in the sauce all night and the pictures were a bit better. Wish I took pictures before devouring it again.

Beer Battered Fish Tacos

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Batter”. Typically, I usually stay away from deep fried foods. Not for any health reason, even though that is a good one, but more because I have never been a huge fan of deep fried food. These fish tacos might have changed my mind. Not only was the whole taco delicious, the cod had an amazing flavour.

California Burrito

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “California Cuisine”. I grew up in California so when I saw this theme, I got a little nostalgic. Just the other week I was talking about how much I miss California burritos. I mean beans and rice are good and all but some times I want fries in my burrito. This definitely cured my craving for one and I am glad that I have enough to make a few more.

Stuffed Jalapenos

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Presentation”. I definitely dreaded this theme since my plating is kind of crap so I decided to make something simple and tried to make it prettier. Enter these Jalapenos stage right. These can go well as a side dish or if you are like me, just scarf them down for no damn reason.

Spicy Mexican Minestrone Stew

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Italian”. Since I cook Italian food all of the time, I decided to  change things up and try kind of a Mexican-Italian fusion meal. Well, it turned out really good and there are only a few things that I would change.

Chicken Tikka Masala Ravioli

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “screw ups”. Well I still do not own a pasta maker or ravioli stamp so I attempted to make it using just a rolling pin. I think I finally got it! The trick is to make sure you cover everything in your house in flour! That being said, these were absolutely delicious. I would make these any day and honestly, were not too hard. Plus, I made enough to freeze that I do not have to make it that often.

Next time, I definitely will make it a bit more spicy though. I ended up running out of Flour so I substituted whole wheat flour and it turned out fine. Also, you can make the Chicken Tikka, Paneer, Cilantro Mint Chutney, Ginger Garlic Paste, and Curry Powder before time.
