I am making grilled shrimp tacos, so I thought I would grill some corn to make a grilled corn salsa to go with it. Wife Jan really likes corn salsa and when she logged it into the Noom app after dinner, so does Noom. Everything in the salsa was a “green” food.

One of wife Jan’s Noom recipes was Marinated Red Snapper with Fruit Salsa and, of course, I took exception to their take on the recipe. I personally think that bananas do not belong in any salsa or that—in a recipe which is supposed to limit sugar as much as possible—it needs all that brown sugar. However, it did give me an idea for new take on my fish tacos.
I am making Indian tacos this weekend and daughter Miriam cannot eat most of the salsas I am planning to make to top these Native American treats. Miriam is currently “off” garlic, onions, and chilies—which means I need a salsa that does not include any of these. Corn and mango came to mind and I went to work with that idea.
I had bought meat to make tacos al pastor for dinner, but Jan said wanted something lighter—code word “salad.” A few weeks ago, I made a chicken taco salad that was a raging success, a dish sure to become a regular family meal. However, it doesn’t always have to be exactly the same, I thought about trying that as an al pastor taco salad.
Jan was gifted with two small heirloom tomatoes and a large ripe avocado. She requested a dinner with salsa and guacamole. I have gotten a bit tired of fish wrapped in a taco shell, so I thought I would turn it into a salad.
As a Californian, I like to do mash-ups—taking the ingredients of one culture and the cooking techniques of another to create something new. Jan wanted taco’s, but I was growing of the same old, beef, pork, chicken or fish with the usual Mexican spices and salsas. I decided to take kubideh and make something different with it.
Jan and Eilene are off in England for a conference so I decided to make beef tongue. A three pound tongue is a lot for one person to eat, so I am going to make as many variations as I have the tongue and the stomach for. Last night it was simple sliced tongue with mustard. Tonight it is Beef Tongue Tacos.
