A lot of folks were out this past weekend celebrating Cinco de Mayo, the Spanish holiday meaning “Fifth of May”, with tacos, burritos guacamole and various brands of cerveza rubia!
I have my own way of celebrating, though, late or not. If I get lucky and the fish cooperate, I call it Sinko de Breamo. It’s the fisherman’s holiday to celebrate a sink full of big, tasty, fresh bream! I believe in Spanish you’d say “passar un buen rato!”. In Louisiana, we just say “pass a good time!”
You can keep your tostados and chalupas. I like to keep in the tradition of the holiday by fileting up some grande pescados (big fish). Then I grill them and put them in a homemade Fish Taco with some fresh avocado, mayo, salsa and a bit of lettuce, onion and cheese. Serve with Mexican corn and follow with a little siesta. Or just fry them with some French fries and hushpuppies. Either way….
Happy Sinko de Breamo!
