Mahi Pasta Recipe with Guajillo Chilies & Roasted Potatoes

Mahi Pasta Recipe with Guajillo Chilies & Roasted Potatoes

This is an easy Mahi Mahi Recipe to prepare.  It’s a wonderful combination of herbs and Guajillo Chilies sauteed with Mahi, plated atop roasted potatoes.   If you’ve never cooked with dried Guajillo Chile Peppers… you’re in for a treat.Guajillo Chile Peppers have a subtle smokey chili flavor, and are quite mild with a slight tangy fruity finish.  They are a good complimentary herb as they do not easily overwhelm a recipe which is why I love them in this Mahi Recipe
Switch it up – instead of using Mahi Mahi try using large Shrimp (16/20 or 26/30 at the smallest).

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless mahi filets (4-5 ounces each)
  • 4 potatoes quarted into wedges
  • 3 tbsp chopped Guajillo Chiles (seeds removed)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp of chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper sliced into thin stips
  • 1/4 tp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground oregano
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet white wine (optional)

 

Instructions

  1. Coat potato wedges with oil then place in preheated 400 degree oven – set timer for 20 minutes.
  2. Cover chopped Guajillo Chiles with a little water – barely enough to let them soak in.
  3. Create a marinade in a large bowl with the following ingredients: 1 tbsp olive oil, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, oregano, salt, pepper. After that make spaghettin in the best pasta maker machine that you can find here. I personally use norpro pasta machine that is proven to be really effective.
  4. Add the mahi filets to the marinade and toss well being sure that each filet is completely covered – then set aside.
  5. When the potato timer beeps, turn the oven off but leave potatoes in oven to continue roasting.
  6. Pour remaining 2 tbsp olive oil into a saute pan over over a medium heat.
  7. Remove mahi filets from marinade and set aside – then scrap all of the marinade into the saute pan.
  8. Saute the marinade for a few minutes until it sizzles as recommended by FoodNetwork then add the Guaillo Chiles and their water to the pan.
  9. Once the marinade begins to sizzle again, add the mahi filets, bell peppers – cook each filet for about 4 minutes on each side until filet is about to flake but still firm.
  10. With the heat still on, remove the mahi from saute pan – then add the roasted potatoes to the pan folding them into the juices and peppers until completely covered.
  11. Remove pan from heat then center four potato wedges on each dish. Then top each pile of potatoes with a single mahi filet.
  12. Return pan to the heat and add wine. Bring wine and pepper mixture to a simmer then use it to top off each filet.
  13. Garnish top of mahi with a little chopped cilantro and wedge of lime.

Feminized Marijuana Seeds; Miracle or Myth?

Feminized Marijuana Seeds; Miracle or Myth?

Feminized marijuana seeds have been around for a long time, but the jury is still out.  Is it worth it?  Feminized seeds are seeds that produce female cannabis plants.  There are many misconceptions surrounding feminized seeds, hermaphroditic marijuana plants and strictly female plants.  In humans, biologic sex is most commonly presented as either male or female, and absolutely does not switch on its own under natural conditions.   But marijuana plants are different from us (in more ways than one!).  Marijuana sex is more fluid.  It can produce male, female or both kinds of flowers as conditions vary.

Marijuana plants are annuals, meaning that they have only one season to reproduce.  Whatever sexual traits improved the species chances of passing on their genetic material, improved their fitness, were passed on.  That is the lens through which we understand cannabis reproductive traits.  Typically, marijuana is dioecious, meaning that male and female flowers occur on separate plants.  But it is not at all uncommon for a single weed plant to produce both male and female flowers for the sake of survival.

Marijuana

Any sudden change in a marijuana plants environment, such as a change in temperature, light cycle or nutrient deprivation, will put the plant into stress.  Botanically speaking, stress equals a rush to procreate.  If a plant is unable to complete the season, it stands to reason that it won’t be around when plants of the opposite sex come to maturity.  Therefore, as a survival mechanism, it must self fertilize.  In this case, female plants will produce male flowers in an attempt to pollinate itself and pass on its genetic traits.Old School Marijuana Seed Feminizing

Originally, the way feminized seeds were (and sometimes are still) produced is with two female marijuana plants.  One plant must have a strong tendency to produce male plants when stressed, and the other an extremely low tendency.  The  first plant is stressed until it produces a few male flowers and then it is used to pollinate the strictly female plant.  While the seeds produced are guaranteed to be female, they do carry the genes of mother number 1, which means they may contain a strong tendency to produce male flowers when stressed.   A little science behind the frustration of buying feminized seeds and then having the plant go hermaphrodite.New School Marijuana Seed Feminizing

Nowadays, with a bit of chemistry, feminized seeds have an extremely low chance of going hermaphrodite on you.  Using silver, female cannabis plants which exhibit no tendency towards producing male flowers in stressful situations can be forced into a hermaphroditic state.  Then a female plant of equally low tendency is pollinated with Mother 1, and voila… true feminized seeds. Hooray for Weed Science!

Does the Generation Gap Exist, and is Technology a Red Herring?

Does the Generation Gap Exist, and is Technology a Red Herring?

After an excellent debut event last year, TedX Brighton is back under a new steering committee and with a theme of ‘the generation gap’. Already, a fair bit of discussion has been going on about what this means, the demands of ‘generation now’ and the cult of instant gratification, especially in relation to technology.

This is a perennial topic and personally I’m not convinced it’s all that helpful to think in terms of ‘generations’, popular though these labels are. Admittedly, I’ve talked about changing attitudes, working styles and expectations in relation to ‘Millennials’ versus ‘Generation Y’ here on this blog, so maybe I’m as guilty as anyone of perpetuating a model that has outlived its usefulness. But my concern is that we don’t seem to have got beyond the labels and the associated stereotypes, especially when it comes to attitudes to technology. Plus, since we are all on a continuum, the drawing of lines seems arbitrary.

For example, let’s have a discussion about how ‘time in post’ (as one commenter called it) relates to experience, and how experience relates to wisdom. Wisdom is a word we hear little of in the workplace, or even in society in general. Perhaps it embodies something grey, slow-moving, unable to adapt to new ideas, living in the past. Or just a character in a JK Rowling book. But isn’t wisdom simply the ability to remember and learn from the past, and apply that knowledge as and when relevant? Isn’t wisdom also the essential complement to the confidence, optimism and risk-taking that tends (rightly or wrongly) to be associated with being young?

In my mind, to talk about a ‘generation gap’ with reference to technology is a red herring. There are technophobes and technophiles in every generation, and always have been. I’ve come across 80+ year-olds who have embraced computers and mobile devices with the enthusiasm and naturalness of a baby. I’ve also known plenty of teenagers/twenty-somethings who couldn’t use a search engine to save their lives, or who engage with technology reluctantly and purely as a means to an end. For older people there can be physical barriers to using new technology, of course, and if you’re in normal health and under 40 it’s very hard to imagine what this feels like. (Trust me, no-one can prepare you for the shock of your reading vision deteriorating, even though it happens to everyone.)

Technology

Confidence doesn’t automatically increase with age, but wisdom tends to. Society needs both confident, optimistic risk-takers as well as wise people with long memories: and we need to value and appreciate what both sides bring to the party.
