As you know, I’m a big fan of Guy Fieri. On vacation last year, we ate at his restaurant – Johnny Garlic’s.
At Johnny Garlic’s you can write on the table-cloth. In fact, they encourage it! Our server told us that in the back of the restaurant there is a “Wall of Fame” with their favorite customer stories! We wrote about our road trip…
and then I wrote “Dear Guy, Meeting you is on my bucket list! So when ever that may be, I’ll see you then!” Talk about confident! Ha! Little did I know, just two months later in Santa Monica, I’d be crossing something off my Bucket List! Squeee! Seriously, I cried after this picture was taken. I’m such a dork!
When Guy’s cookbook came out, we bought it right away. One of our FAVORITE recipes is Tex Wasabi’s Koi Fish Tacos. I have to warn you, it’s a little labor intensive. Marinate the fish. Bread the fish. Fry the fish. Make Aoli (which is a MUST) Shred the cabbages. Warm the tortillas. It’s a lot but I am here to tell you, it’s worth every minute! Here is the link to the original recipe on Food Network: Koi Fish Tacos
We’ve made this many, many, many times, shared with friends and it continues to be our favorite. Make sure you try the aoli! It’s “Winner, Winner, Fish Taco Dinner!”
