Feliz Cinco de Mayo

Feliz Cinco de Mayo El Grande Hombre; thekitchenman. Buttered Corn Crusted Rock Fish W/ Mango Salsa, spanish rice, refried pinto beans. Mucho Yum! When fresh caught rock fish is at the market, it is so tasty and economical. The filet with no bones can be seasoned and breaded with corn meal, panko crumbs or crushed peanuts or almonds.

The truth is, if properly prepared, is actually very tasty and good for you. I was weaned on the stuff. Grandmother Purcha would have a stock pot on the stove doing a slow simmer filled with parts of the pig, and diced onions celery and carrots. Cuts from the side ribs, jowls, neck bones and shoulder blades had perfect morsels of meat attached. The bone cartridges added the gelatinous flavours. The pig tail and pork hock meat...
