This is an entire meal, if cooked potatoes are added as a side dish. The fish normally used is a kind of snapper, or otherwise Chilean sea bass fillets. Any fresh fish will do.

Recipe #457166

"Albahaca" is basil. In Bolivia this sauce is not really used on salads, but rather on hot dogs, meat patties, even bread. You could use low-fat yoghurt, but a creamy one such a Greek yoghurt is better. It is quite tart, and it can be adapted to your taste by adding a sweetener such as honey.

Recipe #457101

Flan also known as creme caramel outside of South American countries and the United States, is a custard-based dessert topped with a layer of caramel. Flan originated in Europe and later became very popular in Central and South America. This version of cre'me caramel, retains the custard's lightness, but adds the rich flavor of winter squash for a unique fall or winter desert. It can be served without the carmel sauce or can be made as a pie, by preparing a 9" pie crust (partially baked), then add custard and bake at 450 degrees for 10 min., then lower heat to 325 degrees for 30 min. or until knife comes clean.

Dulce World Cup Honey Recipes - Brazil Found at http://www.honey.com/nhb/recipes/recipe-details?RecipeID=1697 Original recipe calls for cashasa (Brazilian sugar cane based spirit) instead of rum, but food will not accept cashasa and I figure rum is a good alternative.

Feijoada is one of Brazil's national treasures. This is a dish that is meant to serve a group, and the preparation begins the night before. Several kinds of smoked meats, ribs, and beef jerky are simmered with the black beans. The meats are removed and served separately on a platter Preparation time includes soaking beans and beef jerky overnight. That is why it is so long.

Recipe #456811

Like carpaccio, ceviche (seh-VEE-chay) is a raw fish recipe that modern cooks just love to play with. It is essentially fish "cooked" in the acid of citrus juice and served with a cold beer on a hot day. The dish originates in Peru, and is thought to be a development from Spanish escabeche, which is a vinegar-marinated dish. This recipe is for the classic Peruvian ceviche. Ceviche is so sharp and acidic it cries out for beer and tortilla chips as an accompaniment -- although you won't find tortilla chips in Peru. In Peru, you will most often find this served with potatoes, either sweet or white.

Recipe #456818

This salad is accompanies many Latin meals. It has a simple lime dressing that allows the fresh flavors of the ingredients to shine. Corn, onions, cilantro, red pepper, and cubes of queso fresco (farmer's cheese) are tossed with a little bit of vegetable oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. If you can find frozen Andean choclo corn at your local Latin grocery, it is fantastic in this light, refreshing, and nutritious salad.

Recipe #456823

An unusual salad featuring watermelon, co-starring honeydew and cantaloupe. For ZWT, classified as Southwest for the lime dressing's TexMex flair.

Although many people do not like fruit with meat, the flavours in this generous party dish meld very well. It's even better to make it the day before, cool, cover and leave in fridge, then reheat gently in the oven. This is a recipe originating in El Salvador.

A flavorful combination of red chile & cilantro in this Argentian chimichurri sauce. Skirt steak is popular in Argentina, if you can't find Skirt steak, you can substitute flat iron or flank steak. It is best to grill the steak to medium or medium rare. This comes from the Williams Sonoma Latin Cookbook. I am posting for ZWT 7; South America.It is said that in the mid 1800s, an Englishman and bon vivant, Jimmy Curry arrived in Argentina, He quickly fell in love with the aroma and taste of the roasted meats and set about to create a spicy accompaniment to show his appreciation for the tasty barbecue. He gathered spices such as chili pepper, sweet red pepper, tomatoes, onions and garlic, and combined them with rosemary, oregano, thyme and salt.The sauce caught on quickly, and today has become the traditional sauce of Argentina.

Recipe #456036

Canned or fresh mangos can be used in this quick tropical dessert but, fresh mangos (right off the tree in Costa Rica) are better. Best served warm topped with vanilla ice cream.

Oh my.... this relish is good on any type of fish, we tried it on DH's trout... yummmm. Recipe calls for fresh corn, but frozen is okay too. If using fresh corn, you'll need 2 ears, cooked and removed from ears. Given to me by DS's sweetheart.
