Cinnamon, Orange and Raisin Rice Pudding

Cinnamon and raisin rice pudding is a special treat in Mexico and if you like Mexican rice pudding cinnamon will definitely be a rice pudding flavor which you are familiar with. Raisins, orange and cinnamon work well as the main flavors in this cinnamon rice pudding recipe, and this is one of our easiest Mexican dessert recipes. This is a creamy and filling dessert dish which will impress everyone at the dinner table. For a different twist you could use either lemon or lime instead of orange for a subtle hint of a different citrus flavor.

A lot of Mexican dessert recipes are light and refreshing but this one is a real winter warmer of a Mexican dessert so it will make a nice change from the Mexican desserts you usually make if you are looking for something deliciously different but still boasting typical Mexican flavors and that south of the border appeal we all love. No other cuisine has the same desserts Mexico has although some countries have similar offerings, in particular Spain (where a lot of Mexican cuisine influences can be traced to) along with other South American countries.

The ingredients needed for this dessert are all easy to find and you will probably have a lot of them already, especially if you regularly make desserts, and in particular Mexican style ones. The preparation is also quite straightforward. The rice is flavored with the other ingredients and then the rice pudding is allowed to cook gently for an hour. This brings all the flavors together and gets the rice nice and soft. This tastes incredible and it also looks pretty served with some cinnamon sprinkled on top plus some orange zest as your garnish.

Pan-Fried Salmon Mexican Style

Salmon is a wonderful fish to work with but make sure you get a good quality piece. This recipe calls for filets not steaks. Choose fresh (not frozen) salmon and pick some filets that are about 1 or 1¼ inch thick. A good indicator of freshness is a bright pink color. Fresh salmon smells like water not like fish. If you are using vacuum-packed fish then use the best before date as a freshness indicator as well as the color.

Salmon can be baked, pan-fried, roasted, grilled, or even cooked in the crockpot. The following recipe uses a skillet and a little oil for a pan-fried result. Pan-frying is a nice cooking method because it is so easy and you can keep an eye on the salmon the whole time. If you wrap it in foil and bake it, you have to open the oven (letting the heat out) and unwrap the salmon to check doneness. With pan-frying you can tell at a glance when it is done, making it a good cooking method for the beginner. Pan-frying is faster too.

Serve the finished salmon with a side salad or with your favorite Mexican vegetable side dish. It would be good with Mexican rice or you can even make a sandwich with the salmon, adding some mayo too. This is quite a spicy recipe so if you prefer your food milder just make sure you scrape out the seeds from the chili (those are the hottest part!) or use ¼ of a chili instead of ½ of one. You can even grind some chili powder over the fish if you do not have a fresh chili pepper. The end result will be very similar. Continue reading

Response to Fan to a Fan Mail Comment


“As a native Californian living in Boston I have to fend for myself when it comes to Mexican cuisine. A giant burrito akin to a loaded diaper is what passes as authentic here. I keep a Mexican pantry and primarily cook Mexican food.

I very much enjoy your site but I see no way of printing recipes other than to cut and paste them. Am I missing something?

With out that feature I don’t see myself going to your site as often as I would if I were able to print the recipes like other sites allow.”
