Breakfast Quesadilla with No-Cook Tomatillo Salsa

This breakfast quesadilla reminds me of one of my favorite foodie cities, Austin, Texas.   One of the main reasons why I’m obsessed with its food scene?  The wealth of Mexican-style breakfast options.  Many of the coffee shops sell delicious pocket-sized breakfast tacos side-by-side with equally delicious croissants. Corner diners have a brunch menu page dedicated to all sorts of Mexican-style dishes—breakfast burritos, burrito bowls, tacos, quesadillas, taquitos. NYC, you need to get with the program!

Fish Tacos with Mint Mango Salsa & Avocado Crema

Remember my muse for the week, the mint I found at the farmer’s market which I mentioned in my previous post? Well, here is another dish it inspired. Was drawn to the idea of a very simple mint mango salsa, cool mixed with sweet with the savory avocado crema to balance it out. As for fried fish tacos, I have always wanted to create a healthier version to treat myself when I’m craving the fish tacos from Tacombi in NYC.  

Cilantro Shrimp Tacos with Spicy Slaw

I am obsessed with tacos—hard shell, soft shell, chicken, veggie, whatever— but seafood, especially shrimp tacos , are my favorite. Still hankering for my all time favorite which I had in Austin two weeks ago—the Baja Shrimp at Torchy’s Tacos (hand-battered fried shrimp with slaw, jalapenos, queso fresco, and chipotle sauce—so darn good). Since there is not a Torchy’s in New York City (probably for the better…), I devised this super easy healthier spin on the Baja.
