Spicy tomato zips up this traditional Mexican dish
When Americans think of Mexican food, we picture tacos, enchiladas, and refried beans. But seafood? Not so much.
Which is odd, because Mexico has a long coastline with some extremely productive fishing grounds. Mexicans eat lots of seafood, and many famous seafood dishes are well known throughout the country. It’s just that many of us gringos aren’t familiar with them.
With Cinco de Mayo on the horizon, you may be planning a festive menu. So how about a traditional shrimp dish from Veracruz? It has all the zesty flavor you expect from Mexican food, but it’s lighter and healthier than many of the dishes you may know.
Sounds like a winner. Olé!
