Tealitos Tropicales

In an effort to render Florida teal into a true Southern fast meal I've concocted a deviation from Northern influences. None of that cholesterol laden(bad Karma for arteries) greasy bacon or heavy artificial commercial sauces to rape the flavor of a florida teal.

Ingredients;

1. A braze of teal, or perhaps a squad or even a limit; Skinned and breasted, each sliced in half. This can happen in the afternoon after an efficient morning hunt and cleaning.
2. In a blender(please don't confuse with a Bender which is a fine watercraft very appropriate for Florida ecological ducking).
Place;
a) 4 cloves of garlic and a teaspoon of salt.
b)A dollop of orange blossom honey
c)A few vigorous shakes of tabasco sauce(sorry, the birds ate my homegrown hot peppers)
d)A least a tablespoon of oregano.
e)A couple of tablespoons of cheap red or white vinegar.
f) A healthy(2oz.) of essence of the gods(olive oil).
g) Quarter teaspoon of tarragon.
h)Finally squeeze into the vessel a fresh lime.
i)Flip the switch and let sit for the few seconds it takes to fill a ziplock with the tealitos and pour the marinade.
j) Place in the fridge for 30min, 60min or overnight(it taste the same).
3. On a hot griddle sear the glorious tealitos, one minute on each side so they may softly peep as you sink your teeth into the delicate flesh.
4. This should be served with plain white rice(not the sacriligious culinary yellow uncle ben's perverted rice). Of course it's entirely appropriate to serve with fried ripe plantains.
5. Of course a mid morning lull brake in the morning hunt has a place for this tropical favorite. Scrambled eggs tealitos skillfully prepared in the blind on a portable griddle can be a reward for the rigors of the hunt. If you're hardcore effete with a finely tuned taste buds place in between a healthy portion of cuban bread or a baguette.

Buen Apetito!!

Re: Tealitos Tropicales

We cooked up some teal last night Jimmy. Thanks for sharing. We ate it as directed with black beans & rice and fried plantains. Washed them down with a Dos X.

Re: Tealitos Tropicales

Your last night's dinner have stimulated the atavistic digestive juices in the grey matter.
It conjured up a vision of a twist to the dish. I'll call it SLAYER TEALITOS MIAMI in honor of our most worthy ancestors. Actually the marinade is a simple Cuban mojo; Essence of the gods in a liberal amount, one or two sour orange juice(or lime or lemon), nice amount of oregano, a satisfying portion of cumin, cloves of garlic, teaspoon or two of brown sugar(may substitute with honey), srirasha(or other hot sauce) and salt. Blend well and place in baggy with the tealitos for a while. Then sear briefly(tealitos don't take kindly to over cooking).
Glad the original complemented the black beans and platanitos maduros.
