Pati-Love, love, love the show! I am a native San Diegan currently living in Idaho. I so miss the wonderful, fresh food of Mexico and Baja, and your show allows me to recreate many of them. I can assure you that fabulous seafood and many of the Mexican dishes I grew up with are unavailable here. This shrimp dish reminds me of the great shrimp dishes I’ve had in Ensenada, Tijuana, and Mazatlan. Muchas gracias, y bon appetite!

Gracias, Nancy! I will try to add more seafood dishes…



¡Pati! ¿Cómo se fue qué se te olvido que cocktail quiere decir coctél y no cocktail?

Jaja! Es el Spanglish world, tienes razón!

Nos uncanta tu receta de coctel de camarones a lo Pacifico. Nosotros tambien somos costenos y mi especialidad es mariscos de todo tipo.
