Hello! It’s Mystery Dish time again! If you haven’t seen this before, a group of 11 other bloggers and I use a list of ingredients and each come up with a recipe using at least three foods from the list. This month I am the host, which means I chose the ingredients! Here it is:
- gluten-free flour (coconut, rice, almond, etc.)
- red pepper flakes
- agave nectar
- parmesan cheese
I actually hadn’t decided what I was going to make yet and then realized I made these tuna tacos with avocado corn salsa that accidentally fit the bill! This salsa is so easy to make. You only need a handful of ingredients and a few minutes to be ready for dipping. It’s a little sweet, a little spicy, and a lot good. The salsa includes corn, agave nectar, and red pepper flakes from the ingredient list, and the fish in the tacos was a bonus ingredient. I found frozen ahi tuna steaks that were a real treat for this dinner. After thawing them in the refrigerator, I dried them well with paper towels, seasoned them with a dry BBQ rub, and seared them on all sides in a little oil in a very hot skillet. It had been too long since I enjoyed rare tuna. So good! If tuna’s not your thing, this salsa is delicious on its own with chips, or it would be great on chicken tacos too. Before I get to the full recipe, I want to show you what my Mystery Dish friends came up with. There are some amazing recipes in here that you should check out!
