Barbecued Mexican Shrimp Stuffed Red Snapper Packets, with avocado, Roasted Peppers, tortillas and cilantro

Well, our Weber is going South of the Border tonight, and I’m making Barbecued Mexican Shrimp Stuffed Red Snapper Packets with Roasted Red Peppers, Avocado and tortillas.

I’ve really been into grilling for the past few days, Barbecued Asian Pork Chops, Barbecued Fillet Mignon with Blue Cheese Crumbles, and last night I barbecued a chicken. Tonight is Friday, so no meat. But I did have some red snapper in the freezer, and some cooked shrimp as well. I thought I could stuff the snapper with the shrimp, and as I was chopping it up, it occurred to me if I added spices and cabbage, it could become South of the Border.

    I bought a second hand Kitchen-aid mixer the other day, its a couple of years old but its still working like a trooper. Made some lovely cakes over the weekend too, its a really good piece of kit and would recommend it to anyone.

      You’re lucky to find a second hand Kitchen-aid mixer. The one that I have is over 15 years old, and works beautifully. I had heard at one time that Kitchen-aid was using plastic on some of their mixers, got complaints, and went back to metal. You know, you don’t have to make only cakes in your mixer, I use mine for Three Pepper Meatloaf, crab cakes and a bunch of other things.
