Tiradito

My family loves to fish. Believe it or not, when I was only 14 I caught a 165 pound marlin! For real. It's a fun sport and what's even better is enjoying all your fresh caught fish. Sashimi anyone? A few months ago I went down to Ensenada with some friends and family and we had the most amazing day fishing. We each caught as many fish as we wanted. I'm proud to say, I caught the fish of the day!

Dorado aka Mahi Mahi
Over the course of the following week, we enjoyed everything from fish tacos to a little raw sashimi. What I'm most excited about, is the delicious tiradito that I made. I initially tried this dish when I was in Cabo and I loved it so much that I made the waiter give me the recipe. I recreated the dish with some of our fresh Yellowtail and it was a hit! Try this protein packed dish at home.



























To Make:

Stack the following ingredients in thin layers inside of a large tupperware or baking pan in the following order.

- Bay leaves-
-Thinly sliced red bell pepper-
- Thinly sliced red onion-
-Thinly sliced Ginger-
-Thyme-

On top, place thin slices of the freshest whitefish you can find (I recommend Yellowtail). Top with one part soy sauce, 3/4 part fresh lime juice, and enough olive oil to saturate the upper layer of fish. Cover and let sit in the drawer of the fridge for at least 6 hours. When you're ready to eat, simply take the first layer of fish off of the top and arrange neatly on a plate. Use your imagination for your favorite garnish, I like jalapeƱos and a squeeze of lime. Enjoy!  xo
