Seared Scallops with Avocado Mousse and Chipotle Sauce

I’m a sucker for anything made using avocados and Avocados from Mexico reign supreme. Avocados are high in potassium and rich in monounsaturated fat, the heart-healthy kind and eating avocados can promote healthy skin and hair. So this appetizer is not only delicious but good for you, bonus! So here’s the skinny on avocados. Mexican avocados have a minimum of 21% fat, an average of 25%, and some even reach 30%. So in a nutshell, the higher the fat percentage, the creamier, and richer the avocado.

Clams Stir Fried in Roasted Chili and Basil

Food soundtrack: Sea of love by Cat Power My favourite food is shellfish and any sort of crustaceans. I love mussels, oysters any seafood really that requires peeling out of a shell.

This recipe requires Thai chilli paste (nam prik paw) it adds that sweet but spicy flavour that is such a staple of Thai cooking.

Chipotle Sweet Potato Gratin

Current obsession: canned chipotles in adobo sauce. I bought them specifically for Thanksgiving dinner to try out a new recipe and now I can’€™t get enough of them. I’€™ve been adding them to scrambles, mixing them into salsa to spice things up, and I’m constantly looking for new things to do with them.

Tamales!

I pulled out an old favorite cookbook and immersed myself in southwestern cuisine. The book is, Cayote Cafe by Chef Mark Miller. When I aquired this book, twenty some odd years ago, it was so edgy I didn’t know what most of the ingredients were, let alone where to get them. For example, the book includes recipes for tomatillo salsa, ancho chile rubbed rabbit, poblano pesto and grilled nopales (cactus leaves). Sounds pretty ordinary for these days, right?
