Lime Chicken Tacos with Tomatillo Salsa

cut up chicken tenders

When I went to Irvine, CA last April for Sameer’s Eats Halal Food Tour, Lime Chicken Tacos was one of the recipes on the menu that I demonstrated. I made a quick tomatillo salsa (salsa verde) to go with it. Sameer got a try and so did a few fortunate halal foodies out there in the audience. It was so much fun- I need to dig out those ...

Buttermilk Pancakes with Orange Zest

Buttermilk Pancakes with Orange Zest | My Halal Kitchen

Winter weekend mornings are the perfect time to cozy up to a pancake breakfast. I can eat them without all the side fixings of eggs and {halal} sausages, as long as the pancakes are flavorful. That’s why I like to make these pancakes with creamy buttermilk and the zing of citrus zest or peels. You could replace the orange with ... Read More »

10 Recipes for Halal Grub on Superbowl Sunday

Salsa

If there’s one thing I’ll take on Superbowl Sunday, it’s the fun of planning and executing the game-day menu. I’m not a fan of football, though. I don’t really know the rules of the game, despite being a cheerleader (which was a long time ago) and attending countless Friday night games during high school. Realistically, most of us girls were ... Read More »

Caribbean Shrimp Salad

Caribbean Shrimp Salad | My Halal Kitchen

I used to do a lot of traveling in the winter months- short escapes to warmer climates like anywhere in Florida or south of the border to Mexico.  Coming from the Midwest, I was indeed a  young snow bird of sorts. Sometimes I did it with the excuse of studying (i.e. taking intensive Spanish language courses in Merida, Yucatan Peninsula ... Read More »

Acorn Squash Hummus

Acorn Squash Hummus | My Halal Kitchen

Years ago I would have never openly served a hummus dish other than one made strictly from chickpeas and tahini (sesame seed paste). I thought I might offend a guest or anyone who thought it would be impossible to enjoy alternatives, although I’ve been playing around with recipes that used red pepper and different types of squash for years and ...
