Tex-Mex dinner 3-ways…

Tex-Mex dinner 3-ways…

There is one positive to Covid for me, which is the continuous work-from-home mantra. I love it. I still have many calls at silly o’clock to the USA and to Europe, Middle East & Africa, but they are all managed from home in the main now not stuck in the office. I also see my family 10x more. I can see them off to school, and even collect them from the school bus with no impediment on work. I also spend dinner time at home now, which is a 1st for many many years. That also means that the time usually spent travelling to and from the office in taxis or buses can be spent at home – and today that ‘spare time’ as used for cooking dinner for the family – and I went large and bespoke for 3 segments of the family…

Seared Tuna ‘w’ Avocado Salsa for Wifey

Cheese & Chicken Quesadillas for Jude Jude

Chicken Fajitas for Strawberry Blonde and I

Not a packet mix in sight – all made from scratch and all rather tasty it has to be said. And for dessert, it was my ‘Rooks’ Apple Turnovers… Again thanks to Diane Hall for that challenge haha. I reckon these must be #BillWallaceFriendly as nothing too extravagant in the recipe and most from the fridge, but sadly no cigar & a #NotKnibbsyKiddleWagyuFriendly today.

But, it was Yummo!!! Let’s have a look.

Salted & Herb Crusted Seared Tuna ‘w’ Avocado Salsa – tuna Tataki-style cooking of the tuna fillet. Make sure you get sushi grade. I crusted the tuna steak with some cracked black pepper and salt flakes infused with thyme & rosemary and fried it off in a little butter. You fry this off on each side until about 1cm is cooked and then turn to the next side – warm and raw in the middle with a thin cooked crust all round = perfect, like the picture. Served in some lettuce cups was; rough-chopped avocado, tomatoes, & red onion, with some finely chopped coriander, sea salt, cracked black pepper, lime juice and Yuzu… BOOM!!! Salsa on steroids… Slice the tuna steak thinly and lay it on top – give a squeeze of fresh lime – serve!!!

Chicken Fajita Fest – in a zip-lock I added some thinly sliced chicken breast with a homemade dry-rub of 2Tbsp smoked paprika, sugar, cumin, garlic powder, and a good pinch of cracked black pepper and sea salt. When you’re ready to cook pop this in a baking tray drizzle with some Olive oil and pop in the oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is nicely cooked through. I made a tomato salsa for Strawberry Blonde (the same as above minus the avocado – as she does not like avocado). I also finely chopped some chives and added to some sour cream, finely sliced some iceberg lettuce, grated cheese from a packet, some lime slices for zing and a few warmed tortillas – hey presto…

Dos Quesadillas en Una – On a baking sheet lay down one fresh tortilla and sprinkle all over with your chosen grated cheese, and on one half I also laid out some of the cooked fajita chicken from above. Pop another fresh tortilla on top, press down, and in the oven, they go for 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted and the tortillas crisp and brown. Cut to four and serve on a platter. Kerching!!! Jude Jude was a very happy boy!!!

And that was that – a very happy 4-ball for dinner at Chez Kennett. I wonder what they’ll bet getting tomorrow? The advance hint is that Skirt Steak, Wagyu Broth & Octopus is out of the freezer. Watch this space. A lovely array of flavours, textures and colours for tonight’s Tex-Mex dinner 3-ways… A cracking dinner, super-filling and actually relatively easy to prep and cook I think you’ll agree? More tomorrow – ENJOY!!!
