Our Favorite Hangover Cure: {Aguachile Verde} Sinaloa-Style Chile Lime Marinated Shrimp

On my last trip to Tijuana I stopped and tried every Aguachile I came across. On our second day, we started out at the Mariscos El Paisa street stand to get a taste of Sinaloan aguachile aka Aguachile Verde. I'm not the master coctolero that these guys were so by now means is this their exact recipe. But, I recreated my favorite parts of the dish to make this shrimp aguachile.

Strawberry Rosewater Cardamom Lassi

My latest obsession has been this buttermilk and strawberry lassi. Some swear you must use whole milk yogurt to call it a lassi, but I like the tang and frothiness that comes from blended buttermilk. From there, riff as you please, but don’t skip the cardamom and rosewater because they take it from meh to a tall sip of India.
