Happy New Year! If you are anything like me, you may have over-indulged a bit on the red meat and AMAZING carbs that the holidays bring about. Keeping that in mind, I thought we could kick off the new year with a recipe that is light, yet filling and, of course, full of flavor.
This soup began as one of those throw together recipes while camping with a bunch of friends in the fall at Carlsbad State Beach. Fall in SoCal can often mean temperatures well into the 80s, so it is not unreasonable to schedule a camping trip to the beach. Well, this wasn’t one of those Octobers.
We had all the makings for some awesome fish tacos, but it was a little chilly out. Wanting something a little more comforting and hearty than tacos (not that tacos can’t be both of those things!), we set a kettle on a grate over the camp fire, poured in water and tossed in the fixings for tacos and salsa – cabbage, tomatoes, onions, garlic, jalapeños, cilantro, etc. While the soup was simmering, we grilled the fish simply seasoned with a little salt and pepper and then finished it with a squeeze of lime as it came off the grill.
The best part of soups like this is the garnishes. Serve it up and then pile on the diced avocado, radishes, onions, chopped cilantro, Cotija cheese, and sliced jalapeños. BTW – add a couple more chilies to the pot and you have a killer hangover cure… THE BEST!
Please Note: Grilling & Outdoor Recipes will be moving to a self-hosted site within the Bull Outdoor Products website!
During the transition while the design and updates to the blog are finalized, I will continue to post the lead-in to the recipe here on this site with a link to the new site. Be sure to sign-up for the email notifications for the recipe posts! If you are using a feed aggregator like Feedly, use the URL http://blog.bullbbq.com/.
Thank you for your patience during this transition!
Cheers and Happy Grilling!
