This is one of Dr. J's favorite meals. It's a perfect warm weather dish, and with it being over 100 degrees F here, it's was just the ticket for dinner the other night. My favorite part of this is the carrot/cilantro/lime combo... it is so refreshing. Definitely one of our family favorites!
Carrot & Red Onion Escabeche
2 cups carrots, sliced into matchsticks
1 large red onion, diced finely
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Combine all ingredients.
Chili & Lime Marinated Chick'n
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
juice from 1 lime
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
dash of red pepper
1 package of Gardein Chick'n Scallopini
1. Combine ingredients and marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.
2. Remove the patties from the marinade and saute over medium high heat until they are cooked through.
3. Slice the chick'n into strips.
For The Tacos
I like to use corn tortillas and I first place the Chick'n in the center and then add a big scoop of the Escabeche, followed by a dollop of tofu 'sour cream'. If I have avocados, a spoonful of guacamole is yummy on the taco as well.
