We are FIRM believers in the idea that ALL couples should do this at LEAST once a year, to keep "in sync" with one another and rekindle that "spark!"
This photo is from our trip to Cabo, in 2009.
I'm excited to share some of the beautiful pictures that I've already been snapping, of this years vacation, when we get back!
Not only is Mexico one of our TOP "relaxation destinations"
but it's also home to our most favorite types of foods.
Chips, Salsa, Fresh corn tortillas, guacamole, tacos, carne asada... you name it!
If it's Fresh Mex, We don't just like it... we LOVE IT!
:)So, in honor of our trip this week, I wanted to share with you a yummy Salmon Taco recipe that Cason and I tried out a few weeks back... when we were feeling "the itch" to leave on vacation... during a snowy day, at home. ha!
I'll be honest, I'm not a "fish eater" but after we made these babies... I think I'm jumpin' on board! Thanks to the Our Best Bites cookbook, and a few additional online recipes, we had a killer dinner!
We wanted to share with you where we found everything, so hopefully you could give them a try too!
We started out by marinating our salmon fillets in some store bought Tariyaki Lime sauce, and then got to making some Creamy Tomatillo Dressing, just like the kind you can get from Cafe Rio. YUM!
While those were both chilling in the refrigerator, we moved onto our Cilantro Lime Rice.
One of our favorite recipes for that, is found HERE.
While that was cookin' up, I chopped some tomatoes, onions, extra cilantro and a jalapeno, to make some fresh salsa. Add a little salt to these fresh chopped ingredients, and you're done!
Since we still had some time to kill, before the rice was cooked, we tried our hand at some homemade tortillas. Recipe HERE. They were delicious! A little labor intensive, but totally worth it!
While we cooked the flour tortillas up, we also set the salmon under the broiler.
It only took about 3 or 4 minuets on each side, and they were perfectly done!
We kept our broiler on low, because there was sugar in the teriyaki sauce,
and we didn't want it to burn under the broiler on high.
After everything was finished, and assembled... it was time to eat!
Follow up these fresh Mexican style fish tacos with some strawberry shortcake...
And you've got Dinner, people! :)
I have to say, that this is definitely worth trying, if you're looking to "shake things up" on your weekly dinner menu. Your family will thank you :)
ps. I made up a chicken breast for my kids,
and put it in their taco, instead of salmon, and they loved it!
