chefmisterv Cabracho a la Plancha con Salsa Ajo; Grilled Pacific Rockfish w/ Garlic Sauce. (life lesson: not all Mexican food is burn your mouth spicy)
I first went to Mexico in 1984 - Mazatlan, Sinaloa to be exact - with my younger brother, to visit my mom. She had traveled there with friends for a vacation, deciding to take early retirement from a government job, after a particularly bitter labour dispute gutted many provincial services. She was in Emergency Services with the Human Resources Ministry, and was a Senior Clerk. Her post was at the inner city emergency housing unit for children, either apprehended or abandon. Well once she got there, she didn't want to come back, so... she stayed awhile...
Anyway, I could write volumes, but that isn't the point of this post.
I was 19 and my brother 16, and as I found out, the Mexican authorities weren't particularly particular about the drinking age, which we additionally found out was 16 at the time. Hence the bottle of Pacífico beer above, which hails from... Mazatlan! At 0.25cents a bottle? Ya, we had a great time. Those were different days, but after posting a couple of photos with Salsa Ajo as an ingredient, I got homesick for some Pescado a la Plancha con Salsa Ajo... Soooo, then I needed some Cerveza Pacífico... you now, so this 50 year old could like close his eyes and imaging he was 19 again in Mexico enjoying the local cuisine... The End... buen provecho!
