The Best of Mexican Mariscos for Easter!
As is the Catholic tradition, during Easter season Mexican's follow a mostly pescatarian diet, and as Mexico is blessed with amazing seafood from coast to coast we have nothing to complain about!
1. Baja Fish or Shrimp Tacos
These beer-battered fish tacos are served just how we remember them from childhood, with the tangy crema, vinegary jalapeños and amazing tortillas it will immediately transport you to the magical beaches of my dearest Baja. For the recipe you can use any type of white flaky fish, cod stands up well to frying but halibut is our favorite. You can also try it with shrimp! For vegetarians you can also replace this with banana blossom or jackfruit which are known to be the best options for replacing fish in this occasion. Find the recipe on by clicking on this link.
2. Classic Fish Ceviche
A classic fish ceviche is white fish 'cooked' in lime and flavoured with tomato, onion, cilantro and chile, usually served with tostadas, which are fired or baked corn tortillas, this dish is super refreshing and perfect for Easter and summer occasions.
3. Puerto Nuevo Style Lobster
The freshest lobster in the block, fried and served with refried beans, flour tortillas and Mexican red rice, always with a side of salsa to make your own burritos or enjoy everything separately while mariachi sing to you next to the sea! The dream plate!
5. Maximus Towerus
The king of kings of Mexican Mariscos, this 5kg tower of seafood goodness has everything our weak little hearts could desire, the best blue fin tuna, octopus, baja shrimp and avocados from Mexico (saying with the jingle), then douzed in salsa botanera and marisquera which is made by hand in a molcajete with the infamous Chiltepin chiles, just wow!
We hope you've enjoyed this special Easter transmission, and inspire you to try some of our best Mexican seafood dishes!
We wish you a healthy and happy Easter! Love,
