Langostino Tacos & Sopa de Arroz

We had yummy battered langoustine tacos and sopa de arroz for dinner last night. I battered the langoustine with a beer better made from a box mix and dropped them in my deep fryer for 2 minutes. We topped our tacos with fresh salsa, lettuce and crema.

Fresh Salsa
4 Roma tomatoes chopped
4 Green onions chopped
About a 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
1 and 1/2 chopped serrano peppers, seeds and all.

Mix everything together and enjoy.

I also added corn and peas to my rice at the same time that I put in the water. Just make sure if you use canned that you completely drain them.

Notice the cocktail in the background of my photo? It's called a Hanky Panky. I bought Chris  this Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails book for Christmas.

It has some pretty unusual recipes along with some written history on when and how the drinks came to be.

Hanky Panky

1 1/2 ounces of gin, we used Brokers
1 1/2 ounces of sweet vermouth
A dash of Fernet Branca, a type of bitter herbal liquor

Pour everything in your cocktail glass on the rocks with a twist of orange peel.  It is herbal and surprisingly refreshing.
