grilled fish tacos, delicious summer grub

I finally got around to making grilled fish tacos again, but my camera battery was dead, so I borrowed this pic from Pink of Perfection. While there seems to be a lot of prep for fish tacos (sauces and toppings), they are so worth it!

My fish (Swai) marinade is super simple: 
fresh lime juice; about 1 T for 2 fillets
¼ tsp. garlic oil
1 tsp. chipotle powder
about 1½-2 tsp. veg oil

Let the fish marinate at least 1 hour.

Grill at medium heat, 300° to 400°, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. 

You can steam the corn tortillas in a microwave safe dish with a lid.  Dampen a dish towel, place inside the dish.  Wrap the tortillas in the dish towel and heat at 50% power for 4 minutes.  Warming them on the grill is also great.

We topped the tacos with cilantro, avocado, grape tomatoes, Cotijo and tomatillo salsa.

Tomatillo Salsa

3-4 tomatillos
¼ to ½ of a jalapeno, depending on how much heat you like
Juice from ½ a lime
½ C cilantro
1 clove of garlic
6 grape tomatoes
S & P to season

Blend all ingredients in a small processor or blender.

I also made Guy Fieri Grilled Drunken Shrimp Tacos, soooo good.

takin style outside

With the record breaking temps in the 100's around here, most people want to be indoors with the AC.  I on the other hand want to be outdoors, in the shade, with a light breeze and a tall, cold _____ (fill in the blank).

My assistant, Dog Faced Boy, and I have a mighty busy day ahead; dropping off chairs for a client, shopping for doors, chores at the horse rescue then an event to promote the horse the fish tacos will have to wait.

I made them for C the other night, as well as shrimp, we ate late and we were really hungry so a photo opportunity was not an option.  Dang, I guess I have to make them again just to get a pic!

pantone margarita, interiors

I'm not sure if word got out about Margarita being one of the colors from the Pantone Spring 2012 Color Report, for fashion or for home, things are hard to find...I had to go back to 1954 to find the best fashion image, and a fabulous image it is!

This room and the room below, swanky without being stuffy, great balance of traditional and mod.

Soooo digging this dining room.

pantone margarita home accents, low & high

The final color from the Pantone Spring 2012 Color Report is Margarita.  It's not exactly what I think of when it comes to Margarita, the color that is, it has a blue tone.  It is like a seafoam green; soft, sophisticated and tranquil.
