Chipotle Shrimp Tacos with Tex-Mex Rice

These shrimp tacos burst with spice and have smoky heat. The cilantro-lime slaw brings brightness and balances out the peppery shrimp.

The recipe is Eating Well's Chipotle Shrimp Tacos (August 2022 pg 114), I just changed it up a bit for us - I used a more complex-flavored seasoning and cooked the shrimp in a wok over hot coals. Finally we served it with a quick and easy Tex-Mex Rice.

Their seasoning was just ground chipotle, garlic, and salt, which is fine. For tacos, I wanted to jazz it up a bit with smoky paprika, toasted cumin, coriander, chili powder, and turbinado sugar.

College football is back, and these wings epitomize great Game Day eats! They are sweet, smoky, and spicy because we glaze them at the end with teriyaki sauce cut with Shaoxing.

What the heck is Shaoxing? It is a traditional fermented rice wine, also known as Shaohsing or "ye."ow wine". It is yellow or amber in color and mildly sweet, and highly fragrant, reminding me of a strong marsala wine (another favorite of mine).

Fire-roasted salmon gets an upgrade with a spicy, spicy, and tangy glaze in this dish. 

This is really Eating Well's Gochujang Glazed Salmon with Garlic Spinach that I modified for the grill. I served it with teriyaki broccoli and red pepper orzo. We've made it a few times and each time every bite has disappeared.
