Chef Ben is came by this morning to show us some fun and easy Cinco de Mayo recipes.
Shrimp Margarita Dip
Cook the shrimp however you prefer, remove the tails and chop up; about seven will make for a serving for two
Use your favorite salsa
Mix in pico de gallo
A squirt of "secret sauce"... Ketchup...
Add a layer of lettuce to your margarita cup, then a layer of rice, and then the dip
For decoration, add a green onion to look like a straw.
Soft Shell Crab Quesadilla
*To find soft shell grabs, visit your local seafood places, usually not found in grocery stores
Place corn flour lightly on the soft shell crab (in the fish fry section of your local grocery store)
Fry for 3 minutes
On your tortilla, add shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, and rumalong sauce (pickles, capers, some tarragon, mayonnaise, mustard)
Let the cheese melt, close tortilla
Brown and serve
