Spicy sweet grilled calamari with peanuts and scallions.
A perfect end of summer pasta dish with a sauce of fresh tomatoes, zucchini, and mussels.

The idea for this one came from the type of shots where you float one alcohol on top of the other. I thought it would be fun to do with soups and this was the flavor combo I happened to be craving that day. The soups went great together. A nice sweet simple pumpkin soup with that extra sweetness from the caramelized onion was a great contrast to the sharp spice of the ancho floater.
Last week I went to see Cayucas with some friends, and before we headed out to the show, I made this tasty ceviche as a light pre-concert meal. It was inspired by their song “Deep Sea Diver”, and it was summery, fresh, and reminiscent of the ocean, just like the band’s music!
A version of the classic Thai spicy noodle dish with fresh bay scallops.
