Fresh Mako Shark Tacos, Refried Beans, Mexican Rice, Avocado Salsa, and Oatmeal Cookies
On Sunday morning, I went to Ventura Harbor with my mother where we bought fish fresh from the boat. There were about a dozen people filleting Albacore Tuna, and just as many selling packets of Mahi-Mahi, Ahi, and Mako Shark. It was exciting and energizing to see them all working together. I bought some Mako Shark and Ahi Tuna. Fish Tacos are a favorite treat throughout Baja and Southern California - and certainly, one of our favorite meals. They're quick and easy to make on a weeknight - or any time.
For dessert, I made these incredible Oatmeal Cookies from fellow blogger, That skinny chick can bake!!! She is a talented and inspiring baker, and these cookies are wonderful - with all the dark brown sugar, they smell like caramel when you take them out of the oven! I used dried Cranberries in place of Cherries, and they were great.
You won't be able to resist eating more than 1, or 2, or 3...
John and I have full-time professional jobs but enjoy cooking with the freshest local ingredients we can find. We visit the Farmers' Market each week to see what's new and buy seafood right off the boats in Channel Islands Harbor.
We also love to travel, locally and abroad, so often bring gourmet treats and seasonings home with us. Our blog is peppered with photos of the places we visit as well.
We hope you enjoy reading our posts as much as we enjoy creating them!
