Today my daughter whipped up a batch of her Shrimp Pico De Gallo. We were both hungry for shrimp and I had some tomatoes ripening in the window seal so she suggested a little Mexican for lunch! Yes, I love having someone cook for me, especially someone who is as good at it as she is. She is a product of Food Network, choosing to watch it over Barney when she was only two.

Ok, so here is a funny thing about pico de gallo, the translation from English to Spanish literally means rooster’s beak! So for the sake of not grossing out my guest when I serve it, I’ll call it by its Spanish name.

My favorite part about pico de gallo’s flavor is the base recipe consists of all fresh raw ingredients. The key to a full-flavored recipe is to use fresh cilantro, not dried. Here’s a tip, I find it easier to cut it with kitchen scissors instead of chopping with a knife. Also, I like to freeze any leftover cilantro I have. I just wash it, pull off all the big stems then stuff it in a sandwich-size ziplock bag. When I need to use it in a recipe, I just take scissors and cut off from the frozen leaves what I need. It’s not as good as fresh, but much better than dried.
