Jicama Slaw and Kangaro Tacos

IMG_2530I have an amazing group of friends that have always encouraged me to try something new and be creative. Plus they love to eat which make it easy to please them them all. This past weekend we created a meat day. 7 courses of various meats, fun sides and great drinks.

Meat Day 2013 Menu:

Wild Boar Prosciutto with Melon

Frog Legs Grilled

Elk Sausage and Peppers

Kobe Hot Dogs

Camel Meat Sauce

Kangaroo Tacos (Recipe Below)

Chocolate Covered Bacon (recipe in a later post)

The Kangaroo tacos came out great and I wanted to share the recipe. The meat was very lean and it became a super healthy dish. Substituting turkey meat would work just as great!

Ingredients-

1 Pound ground kangaroo (or turkey)

1 Pack GF taco seasoning

1 Onion Chopped

1 Red Tomato Chopped

1 tsp Salt

Juice of 1 Lime

1 Pack corn tortillas

Guacamole

Jicama Slaw Ingredients:

1 Pound Jicama peeled and finally chopped

2 Carrots Grated

1 Red Pepper Graded

Juice of 1 Lime

1tsp Salt

2 Tbs Honey

1/2 Cup Mint Chopped

1/2 Cilantro Chopped

Start by browning onion in a well sprayed pot. Once it is half way translucent and meat, tomato and season. Continue to mix while meat browns. Now add juice of one lime and cook covered on low for 15 minutes.

While meat cooks put together the slaw. I  a large bowl add carrots, pepper, jicama, cilantro, mint and salt. Mix well and then add lime juice and honey. Mix together and store in fridge until ready to eat.

To serve heat corn tortilla and add 2 spoons of meat, guac and a nice helping of slaw. Enjoy

Chicken Pop

No matter what your making it will always taste better if it looks better. Any simple recipe can be taken up a step if you make it eye appealing. This recipe is a play of my famous chicken wing but done in a whole new way.

Ingredients:

20 Chicken wings separated keep only the drumstick half
2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 Tbs Garlic Powder
1 Tbs Onion Powder
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Pepper
2 Tbs Paprika

Start by taking each chicken wing drum stick in one hand and a sharp pairing knife in the other. Gently slice the small tendon either side on the bone on the long skinny side. Then using the knife scrape the meat up towards the fatter end on the bone. Your trying to create something of a broccoli shape. Repeat this with each wing and then place in a bowl. Toss with olive oil and coat each wing well. Next, add all the seasoning and gently toss everything together coating everything in all the seasoning. Place each wing on an oiled and foiled baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes then flip each wing over and cook an additional 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot and have fun plating the wings with different sauces and styles. Enjoy!
