I mentioned that we were having fish tacos. Now, when Adam suggested that meal, my mind said to itself, "Fish? In a taco? Ick!" I'm a rather limited eater.
But Adam hove too in the kitchen, and first he produced Nani's pico de gallo - a fresh salsa that's great with chips. It's basically this: diced tomatoes, diced onion, lots of cilantro, lime juice, salt. It's addictive. I don't think I've ever met Nani; she's the sister-in-law of my friend, Carolyn. But I must say I know her salsa intimately! It's a summer staple at our house.
And I made my taco, like a good eater. I laid out my fish on the soft shell. First I only put on a little of the pico de gallo juice. It was boring. Adam recommended adding other items, so I did: guacamole dip, fresh pineapple, lime juice, and some of the pico. Much better, but still not quite ... memorable. I was eating everything else on my plate, and neglecting my taco. I just didn't have an inclination to eat it.
And it was wonderful. Mexican Fish Salad? I don't know. But it was mighty good!
