I have a list of things I want to do. One of them is to cook every recipe in a cookbook so I’m working my way through Rick Bayless’ Everyday Mexican. I’ve eaten a lot of good stuff. This series is the record of those adventures.
I've been on a hot-streak with fish lately so I was feeling confident about this dish. It is very classic Everyday Mexican. There are potatoes on the bottom, fish on top and a reduced fire-roasted tomato, jalapeno, garlic sauce that blankets the whole thing. Best of all? You bang the whole thing in the oven making it low-maintenance. Wheee! I made it for my friend Hernan's 3xth? birthday.
Rick says the flavors of this dish are classic Mexican and my friend Lisa agreed. When she took her bite she sighed and said "This tastes like something we'd be eating on the beach in Cabo." I've never been to Cabo, but I think I need to go because it tastes friggin awesome. Until then, I'll just have this fish to keep me warm.
