Hmmmm.....Chef Boyardee raviolis on tacos. Michael, I insist you try that and report back. I will even insist that you take credit for the creation!
Don't forget to sprinkle some Green Can Cheese on top!

So I decided to do fish tacos tonight. Of course, since today was National Margarita Day, I made margaritas for all of us.
I also made Mexican shrimp cocktails.

 
I started with some fresh cod. Marinated it with chipotle, cayenne, grapeseed oil, lemon and black pepper.

 
Grilled tortillas on the cast iron flattop.

 
 
Grilled the fish on the flattop.

 
Fresh chopped onions and cilantro.

 
Made the sauce with ranch dressing and Tapatio sauce.

 
Made some of the tacos with just the sauce, onions and cilantro.
 

 
Other people wanted hotter, so I made theirs with hot salsa.

 
They were yummy!

Ed, I see your passion for food coming back like a herd of Buffalo stampeding through the plains. Your pictures and description make me want to run out and get some........I like the grilling of the fish, I think you a found a way to make Mexican food healthy..............Anthony's in Seattle cooks the fish on a char broiler, I like the grill mark look of the fish. They also make a Mango salsa that sounds good. ..............Great job buddy, I'm sure everyone loved it..................Bill

Thanks, Marlene. I kept it down to four tacos last night. The shrimp cocktails helped fill me up!

Thanks, Bill. I love mango salsa. I also like making scallop ceviche with mango chunks in it. Try it some time!

Sometimes I like a good old American Taco in a hard shell with 
hamburger, lettuce, beans and cheddar.
If I'm going to the Taqueria I like Chorizo, Al Pastor, Buche, and Carne Asada.
The best fish tacos I had were from a guy here who was originally from Mexico City and poached a whole filet in a wonderful sauce. Much different than the usual fried or grilled, though I love those too.

Annie when do we leave??
After we have Ed's cod tacos we can meander on up to Alaska and sample the rockfish and halibut tacos made by Noodles on the Loose.  Now that's a roadtrip!

Neither of you can leave here until you have some of my steamed local rock crabs.

Ed,
Well, if you insist!  I suppose we could be persuaded......and since it's on the way to Alaska, a stop to see pnwchef for a flank steak taco too.

Sounds as if you're going to have one hell of a roadtrip. I guess I'm going to have to sell the house to pay for your adventure.

With the price of gas here right now, you'll need to sell the house so they can drive from Orange County to Los Angeles!

It'll be worth it......to eat those lovely tacos!  Besides, when MH told Al the Mayor that we were together his comment was, "Well somebody has to spend your millions!"

The Flank steak was tender, with a nice taste from the marinade, But, it was windy and I had to cook it inside. My broiler sucks, I wanted to get a good fast char on the outside, but it didn't do what I wanted. The rest was fine, I sauteed the red and green peppers, mushrooms and onions coated in a spicy mexican dry rub.

Bill, 
Even though it wasn't grilled it still looks delicious. My cast iron flattop for the stove is flat on one side and stripped on the other. Makes perfect grill marks and fits right on two burners. You might grab one for the house00000as long as you have a gas stove they work great.
 
Michael,
You don't like mushrooms? But I thought you grew up in the 60's?

Hi Ed, I have one of the flat grill/ grooved grill at my other home........The stove top we have now you can't use case Iron, needless to say, WHAT THE HELL IS IT GOOD FOR. OK, I feel better now.............Ed I thought I would get a nice fast crust because of the oil in the marinade being on the outside of the flank. I want the kind of crust Peter Lugers gets on my steak. They blast it in a 800 degree broiler, I wonder if they have any of those on sale for home use. I like cooking with high heat, The Flank steak and all the other steaks I have are melt in your mouth tender, all I need to do is flash cook the outside and the inside is rare to med rare. I had a steer processed we had them hang the side for 26 days, there is no going back, the meat is excellent.
I still need to do the Shawarma you made a few yrs ago. I know you also wanted to get the brown crusty bits on the outside of the meat. I think you did a great job with it.............Bill
 
Mar..........I put extra Cilantro in the Marinade in your honor. It can be taken off for grilling, you can have your cake, and not eat it too...................A good way to use the cilantro stems is in a marinade.................................Bill

I thought that may have cleared up from your post 13 hrs ago. Thanks for the update......Tell Lisa I will send her some meat if  she would make a nice Beef Stroganoff with extra mushrooms.......

maybe I'm just lucky or I've got it down now, but I get a nice crust on steaks (actually perfect grill marks). Had some T-bones last night that were perfect. What I am wondering is if you use the cast iron on a propane grill set on high. I have done that before and it works well to give a crust on meats.

Bill, I noticed that the cilantro was in pickable size... the only way it should be used.

Ed, I normally get good marking and crust, but, I get the steaks cut a inch think. The Flank was pretty thin, so that was one problem..............I had the left over meat in a steak, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich this morning, now, talk about good, that was good..............take care.....Bill
