Chipotle-Lime Shrimp Taco Salad w/ Cilantro Vinaigrette

ATTENTION: Please view this post at Savour the Senses’ new site-http://savourthesensesblog.com– for recipe and full post. Thank you!

You know those nights when you have an entire meal planned out in advanced, but when dinner time roles around you just don’t feel like eating that oh-so-exciting dish? Well, last night was one of those nights. As delicious as sun-dried tomato and feta stuffed chicken sounded, I just wasn’t in the mood for those flavors. I wanted spice and citrus. I decided to save that for another night. Instead, this is what I came up with.

The cilantro vinaigrette pulls this dish together. It adds a nice tangy flavor that is a great compliment to the spicy shrimp. Roasting the tomatoes gives them move flavor and juice, making this recipe even more delicious! I was planning on eating this with guacamole and salsa, but tasted it and  realized it didn’t need any additions and was perfect as is.

Mahi Mahi Tostada w/ Roasted Red Pepper Aioli

I love reading food blogs; I find myself constantly reading through recipes during my free time. I think that is great to find recipes from other people, rather than a recipe website, because it gives life to the recipe and usually puts a story with each dish. I especially love trying recipes from my Mom’s food blog, Cooking With Michele. It is fun to chat about our posts and new recipes; our cooking has brought us much closer throughout the past year and I love it. With that said, here is my tweaked version of my Mom’s Mahi Mahi Tostada recipe.

Lobster & Shrimp Thermidor

The second lobster dish that I cooked this week was Lobster Thermidor. This recipe took a bit longer than the Butter Poached Lobster & Shrimp recipe. I added shrimp to this recipe as well to add some extra substance to the meal, since we didn’t have very much lobster meat. I found this recipe on MyRecipes from Cooking Light, but tweaked it a little. It is a healthier version of a Lobster Thermidor recipe. If I could afford to buy lobster more often, I would cook these two recipes all the time!

Butter Poached Lobster & Shrimp w/ Fresh Tomatoes

For my weekly cooking lesson with my mom, I killed and cooked my first lobster! We decided to make two different recipes with our lobsters. This is the first recipe we made, a very quick and simple way to cook lobster with a ton of flavor.
