Cold Meat Dishes

nameless dish here but a personal favorite. dead simple, relatively sosphisticated and absolutely delicious. resembles carpaccio but less intimidating to potential convert than a plate of raw meat. all u do is lay down a bed of arugula, top with thinly sliced roast beef from the deli, sun dried tomatos, candied pine nuts (quickly toast the pine nuts in a dry pan with a healthy sprinkling of sugar), FRESH shaved parm, drizzle of QUALITY olive oil and a drizzle of QUALITY balsamic. circle the plate with caperberries and serve. couldn't be easier

Do you have an amazing SAUCE for fish tacos? Please share!

i used to work at a restaraunt specializing in ensenada style fish tacos and what we did was this. thin out mayonnaise with evaporated milk until a desired consistency is aquired and then finish it with juice to taste from a jar of pickles. i think we used the dill variety. the pickle juice adds a nice twang to the sauce. wedges of limes were always served on the side. we also added deep fried capers they add crunch but are mostly just for appearance. could always jazz it up with chipotles in adobo, cumin etc their are some good ideas in this thread
