Spring is here and it is time to get out the grills for this Carne Asada and/or Fish Taco meal kit (can be cooked under the broiler if desired).
Carne Asada. Carne Asada, which translates to “grilled meat,” is a Mexican dish that can traditionally mean any number of cuts of steak. This meal kits is similar to the fajitas offered last month, however fajitas are TexMex and typically cooked with peppers and onions. We will be using outside skirt steak, or commonly known as arracheras in Spanish, meaning "belt.” The “outside” skirt steak is the diaphragm muscle of the cow cut from the plate, which does in fact look like a belt. This cut of meat is sold exclusively to restaurants. It is a thicker and more flavorful cut than the “inside” skirt steak, which comes from the flank, and is available in the supermarket. We also are providing a Guajillo Pepper Mole sauce, which will take us several hours to make, to further enhance the flavor of your Carne Asada (stems and seeds of the peppers are removed, so no heat). We will be serving the Carne Asada with flour tortillas, but the traditional corn tortillas are available at checkout.
Blackened Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos. We also will be offering Blackened Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos. To be technical, these will have blackened spices on them but won’t be truly blackened as you would need a commercial hood in your kitchen or the fire department will be stopping by for dinner. These will be served with a pineapple-cucumber salsa on flour tortillas. Like the Carne Asada, the fish can be grilled or cooked under the broiler.
A comment on seasoning. We purposely under season and keep spice to a minimum, as salt and heat can always be added but are difficult to take away. So, if you like your guac and your carne asada hot, then choose the jalepenos at checkout, broil them up, and season to taste.
Time to prepare: approximately 30 min.
