Garlic Soup

25 Nov

Garlic Soup

This is such a poor mans dish.

My Mom used to  also make this with onions.

I still love the garlic.

2 tablespoons olive oil

8 to 10 cloves crushed garlic

About 8 slices of cubed old bread. You can use whatever kind you like but not a sweet bread.

1/2  teaspoon salt

!/4 teaspoon black pepper

One teaspoon paprika

1/2 cup  dry white wine

One box of chicken or beef  broth about 32 ounces

2 beaten eggs

Heat the garlic and oil till slightly brown

Add the bread, salt, pepper and paprika.

Toast the bread in the oil and spices.

Add the wine and cook for about three minutes

Add the broth and bring to a good simmer.

Add the eggs in a stream while you are whisking the broth.

Adjust your seasoning.

My friend used hot paprika and it was really good.

I ate this with a delicious turkey sandwich.



Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos

Fish tacos cost a fortune in the restaurant but only pennies at home.

Maybe quarters?

Two pounds of a boneless, skinless, white flaky fish.

I love cod, sole, haddock or tilapea but you can use anything including shrimp or scallops.

Tacos can even be made with fried fish and they are very  very good.

I am trying to be a little healthy so my fish will be baked.

One teaspoon adobe seasoning

One teaspoon ground cumin

One teaspoon of paprika

One teaspoon  garlic powder

One teaspoon onion powder

One teaspoon cayenne pepper

Two tablespoon butter or oil

Season the fish with all these spices and set aside for 15 minutes.

One sliced  raw vidalla onion. Soft stir fried onion is also great.

One cup chopped cilantro

One cup chopped red pepper

One large chopped tomato

Two chopped avocados with lime juice on top

Sour cream


Chopped lettuce

Hot sauce

Diced jalapeno peppers

Sliced pickled peppers

Grated cheddar cheese

8 to 10 soft tortilla wraps

Heat the oven to 400 degrees

Bake the fish till it is cooked about 15 minutes. Test it by seeing if the fish flakes.

Heat the tortillas wrap in the microwave in a damp paper towel for 20 seconds.

Place on a plate and start layering .

Start with the sour cream on the bottom

Add the cheese and fish then all the other toppings you like.

Fold the tortilla in half and get as many napkins as you can.

These are messy but delicious.

My kids make a salad by putting a bed of lettuce  on the plate and adding everything on top.

I also serve this with nachos and quesco dip.

Spicy cole slaw is also a great side.
