A pirates life for me!, It aint easy bein cheesy, pirates, Put it in your mouth, Stuffing stuff in stuff

Philly cheesesteak hermits!

Holy mother of pearls!  What’s this treasure you Say? How about some humungo shells… Stuffed with a Philly cheesesteak and smothered in creamy Alfredo sauce? Um… Fuuuuck yeah. I made two of these because I knew the first mate would swallow it up before I could say “go”. I just didn’t want a messy sandwich and I’m bored with stuffing the regular shit into shells. So, after some googling…..this creation was born. It is definitely NOT something you (nor I) should eat often. But, it should be devoured at least once… And as Gramma C always says….

“Try every damn thing once, so you know what your not missing.”

.…..in-greed-ients

  • 1 box of humungo shells (about 10-12 oz)
  • garlic cloves – I like that shit yo! Also, you need this onboard… http://ceramicgrater.com/
  • Olive oil -some
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onions – yes, the kind really fucking matters 
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup diced baby Bella shrooms 
  • 1 lb strip steak – # the shit out of it first &  chop it like its hot
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup Italian cheeses – hells yeah

  • himalayan salt, cayenne, white pepper
  • 2 round pie dishes or my personal fav; cazuellas, which if you don’t know… http://amzn.com/B0019ZOY48 now Ya know. 

.……..the creamy magic 

  1. boil shells in a lot of water- about 10 min. Al dentè that shit & set aside. 
  2. Preheat oven to 350*
  3. brown strip steak with oil
  4. add chopped veggies and seasoning… Don’t be a puss n boots….bring the heat
  5. remove from heat and stir in all that cream cheese (que the sexy music) 
  6. Pour 1/4 Alfredo sauce in EACH dish (spoon it around) 
  7. Stuff those fat little bastards and lay them in a spiral on top of the sauce, because it fucking looks cool
  8. Pour the last of the sauce split on top of the two dishes… Just drown them
  9. cover w foil, bake for 30 min 
  10. uncover, top w that cheese & broil on low for 10 min. Don’t fucking burn it, that would blow holes! 

Serve these tasty morsels with pride… Because they are amaze-balls! Make’em swab the dishes or t’tha locker they go. 

A pirates life for me!, pirates, Taco Tuesday

Fish Tacos with Mango salsa & bacon!

So, my first mate loves to fish, but only in the sea because fresh water fishing is “boring”.  Which means, I get to spend the  entire days he goes fishing… at the beach Booiiii! 

That aslo means we have flounder, sheepshead, trout, mackerel, blue crabs…..ect… on hand most of the year.  Every Tuesday I get a hankering for some form of tacos… hence, fish tacos on #tacotuesday! These flounder tacos were flipping delish.  I saved two for the neighbors like I always do, because I’m an over sharer…but then they disappeared… into my belly…. which I call “The Kraken”.

….bottoms up

  • 6-8 small corn tortillas (I know them fuckers come in a pack of 1 zillion so it doesn’t matter how many I say here)
  • pam
  • muffin / cupcake pan

here fishy fishy:

  • 3 filets flounder – thawed
  • 1 ginger root
  • whole clove garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp butter (reaaalll butter damnit)

…lets do the salsa:

  • 3 fat green jalepenos – sliced
  • 1 ear roasted corn – cut off the cob please
  • 3-5 orange baby bell peppers -sliced  / or 1 reg bell -diced
  • a hand full of cherry tomatoes -cut in halves
  • cilantro – I like that shit yo. -chopped
  • lime juice
  • 1 mango – cubed

…to top it off:

  • 4 strips pre cooked maple bacon – break that shit up
  • man, if you don’t have any Torchy’s “damn good diablo” sauce yet…http://torchystacos.com/store/hot-sauce/ getchusome and swirl it on top of stuff  like this. Shit… you can even lick it off of… things.. (note to self: use torchys sauce for sexy food play night)

Now for the magic:

  1. Puree ginger , lemon juice & garlic and coat the fish. Wrap in a foil pouch with all puree on top and throw some damn butter on it too… let it sit in fridge.
  2. Preheat oven to 400*. Spray the bottom of the cupcake pan with pam and place tortillas in between to make “cups”. Bake them for about 8 min (or until crispy, I mean, whos oven is always accurate anyway.)  I’m pretty sure that only 3 or 4 can fit at a time so… you will have to do this shit twice or three times.
  3. Bake fish pouch 10-15 min @400. (with second batch of taco cups but watch them.. I burned a few here)
  4. Whilst that is baking, chop all the salsa ingredients and squeeze lime all over it. (salt and pepper if you wish).
  5. get the pre cooked bacon ready… tear it up… what ever. If you didn’t pre cook it, now you will wish you had
  6. now spoon some salsa in to the cups, place a chunk of ginger fish on top, crumble bacon, swirl the sauce… and HUZZAH!!!
  7. Eat that shit. It’s so good.
