On nights when I don’t feel like spending a lot of time cooking, empanadas are my go to meal. When I say I'm making empanadas, I usually get a WooHoo! from my wife, lol. I use the empanada dough discs from the local supermarket and seasoned the shrimp with sazon goya, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, oregano and my homemade recaito. Here’s a few pics showing how I made them…
Like any island man, I have enjoyed making and eating codfish fritters. I like to hear them crackling in the frying pan, making sure they're crispy with a golden crust. Every time I make them the recipe evolves. Today I added a scotch bonnet pepper to the blended ingredients of green peppers, garlic cloves, cilantro, thyme and onions. The spicy sweet sriracha sauce was made with mayonnaise, sriracha, honey and crushed red peppers. Codfish fritters can be filling but they're usually not the main dish, more of an appetizer. Tasty and delicious is the only way to describe them. If you're interested in my recipe click here.
Enjoy and be safe ...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned. One of the things I plan to do this weekend is to read a few comic books.
