Jerk Chicken and Shrimp

jerk chicken with rice

I went out for lunch today and experienced an extremely underwhelming jerk halibut taco. Besides the fact that I only got about about 2 oz. of fish between two tacos, the seasoning was bland and the overall presentation was quite lackluster, so I decided…

Cadillac Sliders

The Cadillac is Salty’s favorite sandwich, and for good reason. He named it the Cadillac in homage to the car, because this sandwich has everything he wants and nothing he needs. While I personally prefer a few more vegetables on my lunchtime sandos, I…
