When I’m craving a shrimp taco I’m looking for four things: 1. A great marinated shrimp 2. An acid- be it a pickled pepper (like here), a salsa, or a vinegar based slaw 3. Creaminess- a simple sour cream, a flavored crema or cheese 4. A great vessel to eat it in- a doubled up warm corn tortilla, a grilled flour tortilla, or a lettuce wrap. As long as your taco has those 4 things in any combination, you are good to go!
A while ago my good friend Michaela from An Affair From The Heart created a fantastic Chocolate Espresso Cake which I instantly loved. My honey had his birthday coming up, of course I had to make him a cake, and of course Michaelas cake was the first thing that came to mind. Here is my adaptation - Chocolate Overload Cake.
