Backyard Brunch Sessions Episode 2: Team B with special guests (plus recipe)

19 07 2010

A couple comments people had about the last episode:

  1. I was barely in it (I know how much you folks love me)
  2. There wasn’t a proper introduction and ending
  3. There was no recipe listed

Soooo I took a larger roll in this one for the cooking aspect.  However, we took the second comment in consideration when filming the third episode with Person L and The Courtesy Tier.  As for the third, I don’t do recipes, but I can give people a list of ingredients and a rough estimate for quantities for every episode from now.

But first, here’s episode two with Team B (featuring sous chef Kelly Pratt) and The Luyas.  Also, you can find the audio for Team B on nyctaper.

Fish Tacos (feeds 10-12 people)


  • 3 lbs of mahi mahi (alternatives:  tilapia or red snapper)
  • 1 lime
  • 1 large red pepper
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • sea salt and cracked pepper to taste


  • 4 avocados
  • 3 jalapeno (2 inside guac and 1 on the side for extra hotness)
  • 4-8 cloves of garlic (depending on how garlicy you like it)
  • 1/3 cup of chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 onion
  • 3 limes
  • heavy drizzle of olive oil
  • sea salt and cracked pepper to taste (not necessary, but it does help balance the flavors)

Mango Salsa:

  • 3 mangos (or one 24 oz bag of frozen mangos defrosted)
  • 10 oz of frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • light drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 cloves garlic

Auxiliary  items:

  • grated cotija cheese (Mexican parmesan)
  • hot sauce

Cooking tips/notes:

  • Cook fish in frying pan and put it on extremely low heat and cook it for 15-20 min to make fish juicy and tender, but cooked through.
  • Blending the guac makes it too mushy.  However, if you don’t have legit mortar and pestle, use a knife and fork to cut into the ingredients.
  • I made brown rice and red beans for the vegetarians to replace the fish

If you have any questions about the recipe, I can go into more detail, so feel free to email me.

Besides what you already mentioned, you are to be commended for providing a much healthier food alternative. Can’t wait to see your new t-shirts in the next video!
