RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS! Beef in a Sriracha Mustard marinade skewered with cherry tomatoes and grilled! An easy recipe that will become a family favorite!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard (I used French’s)
  • 1/2 cup Sriracha sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp Worchestershire Sauce
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced (I always use my lemon zester to grate my garlic)
  • 1 – 2 lbs steak, cut into chunks about the size of your cherry tomatoes
  • cherry tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup of cilantro or parsley, roughly chopped (optional)

PREPARATION:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the mustard, Sriracha sauce, honey, worchestershire sauce, olive oil and garlic.  Reserve 1/3 cup marinade and refridgerate until ready to grill skewers.  Add the remaining marinade to a large baggie, add beef and marinate overnight if possible or at least for a couple of hours.

Preheat grill to high.  Remove marinated beef from refrigerator.  To assemble skewers, alternate a couple beef cubes with a cherry tomato until all skewers are assembled.  Discard beef marinade in the baggie.  Spray or rub grill with oil to prevent sticking.  Place skewers on grill, basting with remaining 1/3 cup of marinade. Cook until beef is cooked to desired doneness.  They cook really fast so keep a close eye on them! Just a couple of minutes per side for medium ~ that’s our preference so adjust your time accordingly.  Let rest for a couple of moments, sprinkle with cilantro or parsley and serve. Enjoy!

NOTE:   If using wooden skewers, make sure you soak them in water for a while.  If you have metal skewers, use them instead as the wooden skewers will burn with the high heat of the grill.  I preboiled some baby potatoes, tossed them with some olive oil and herbs and also skewered them to cook on the grill with the Sriracha Skewers.  I put them on a few minutes before the beef skewers to let them cook longer and get nice and crispy. It was am AMAZING meal! 🙂 Serve with a green salad and a nice crisp white wine!

Fish Tacos with Roasted Pepper Salsa

TACO TUESDAYS just got SO MUCH BETTER!!

The annual “Newfoundland Food Fishery” has begun and Newfoundlanders are hitting the seas to catch some cod.  We wait for this all year! Eating as much cod as we can, sharing with friends and family, and stocking our freezers for the winter.  And I have to tell ya, there is NOTHING better than cod fresh out of the ocean ~ you can taste the sea on it, it’s super moist, tender, flaky ~ The BEST!

A lot of people I know either pan fry it with a light batter or deep fry it in a nice beer batter but here is a another great option for cooking up that cod (or any white fish you have on hand)  baked “Fish Tacos with Roasted Pepper Salsa”.

The SALSA! The SALSA! The SALSA! is soooo goooood!  It is so fresh, super flavorful with the sweetness from the peppers and the tanginess from the lemon perfectly compliments the BAKED fish. A light recipe without a lot of fat, carbs or calories so feel free to have seconds 🙂 The fish also has a little sprinkle of cheddar cheese and that little bit of creaminess and saltiness is AMAZING ~ do not leave it out! If you are living a low carb lifestyle, just have the fish, cheese, and salsa. It’s delicious either way.
