Dinner Tonight: Mexican-Style Shrimp Cocktail (Coctel de Camarones)

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 6 comments

Though it looks a tad odd at first, Mexican cuisine has its own rendition of the shrimp cocktail. It has many similarities to the American version, except it trades out the horseradish for hot sauce and really amps up the seafood flavor with clam juice. More

This White Chocolate-Mezcal Ice Cream is a wonderful and cooling way to end a week of inspired recipes from Rick Bayless, and a flavor combination that I'm pretty sure only he could come up with. More

Cook the Book: Mexican-Style Shrimp Cocktail

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 1 comment

This Mexican-Style Shrimp Cocktail from Fiesta at Rick's by Rick Bayless is about as close as you can get to an authentic coctel de camarones without a trip to Baja. The sweet-spiciness comes courtesy of the combination of ketchup and hot sauce (Mexican, please), and the crumbly, salty saltines are an unlikely but perfect foil for the cocktail. More

Rick Bayless's Bacon and Tomato Guacamole

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 10 comments

Fiesta at Rick's by Rick Bayless is a must-have for anyone who's enamored of all things avocado-related. And if guacamole is your thing (but really, who doesn't love it?) Fiesta at Rick's has some of the tastiest variations out there. With a fruit as creamy, rich, and versatile as the avocado there are countless ingredients that can be added to the mix—mango for sweetness, toasted pumpkin seeds for a nutty crunch, and, of course, bacon. This Bacon and Tomato Guacamole takes the classic flavors of a BLT and pairs them with smooth avocado, and spicy, smokey chipotles in adobo, along with the lime, onion, and cilantro. More

My goal for Cook the Book this week was to put together a menu for a summer party that would be cool and stress free for the host, minimizing time spent in a hot kitchen but still filled with dishes that were not only easy to prepare but also really enjoyable. And this this Herb Green Ceviche with Cucumber from Fiesta at Rick's by Rick Bayless hits all of the marks. More

Cook the Book: Champagne Margaritas

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

While tequila can sometimes be a polarizing, I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't enjoy a glass of Champagne. In Fiesta at Rick's, Rick Bayless makes one of the most light and lovely apertifs I've had in a long time. Mixing up a batch of these at home brought to mind the easy drinking qualities of a mimosa as well as the bracingly limey refreshment of a margarita. More
