I am wary of food that takes more than three words to describe. Banana cream pie? Okay, sure. Strawberry-kiwi lemon meringue? Nah, I don’t think so. It was Mr. Chemist that first convinced me too many adjectives is a bad sign, but sometimes I can’t help myself.
So. Shrimp tacos? Okay, sure. Coconut lime shrimp with kiwi salsa? Maybe too much. The pretty pictures in this recipe for Grilled Coconut Lime Tilapia Tacos with Kiwi Salsa made me ignore the excessive number of ingredients. Into my bookmarks it went, and today I managed to get kiwi, coconut milk, and fresh cilantro into the kitchen at the same time. It wasn’t bad, but the kiwi would’ve been far better on its own. The shrimp weren’t very coconutty either, but the original recipe called for tilapia, so maybe it was my fault for the substitution.
It makes for a colorful picture, though.
