Tortitas de Camaron y papa en Chef LaLa Homemade Tomato – Serrano Red SauceRead More
At one of our favorite little dive restaurants in Montebello (East L.A. adjacent ;) — my sisters and I love the Camarones Ahogados (drowned shrimp) — it is shrimp”cooked” in Lime juice, cilantro and and slices of Jalapenos — a ceviche of sorts. Ceviche is a dish that is cooked in acid, such as lemon and/or lime juice. If you use fresh shrimp, or other seafood, you should be fine. If you are even slightly concerned about freshness, you may be better off cooking them by a more traditional method.
I like to add ½ bottle of Chef LaLa Homemade Tequila Lime Marinade to 2 pounds of large raw shrimp, they are usually “cooked” (pink and opaque) in around 20–30 minutes.
Made with my Chef LaLa Homemade Carne Asada Marinade.
Yes, Carne Asada means char–broiled Steak. But this marinade— made with garlic, onion, citrus and soy sauce—is so diverse that I decided to use it with chicken wings. 1 bottle of Chef LaLa Homemade Carne Asada Marinade is sufficient for 2–3 pounds of wings. I marinaded them for 2 hours and drained the excess marinade. I placed the wings on a baking sheet and placed them in a preheated 400 degrees Fº oven for 45 minutes – 1 hour, or until juices run clear.
The simplest things in life are the best! I took ½ pound of green beans, rinsed them and trimmed them. In a hot pan, I added 1 Tablespoon of Chef LaLa Homemade Chipotle Flavored Oil. Then I tossed the green beans for 3–5 minutes. Season with kosher salt.
