Combine black-eyed peas, sweet & hot peppers, cucumber, red onion, green onion, tomatoes, half of the parsley, and fonio/quinoa in a large bowl. Gently toss.
Combine oil, vinegar, tahini, garlic, honey, paprika, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk well and add water to thin if needed. Taste and add more honey if needed.
Pour vinaigrette over black-eyed pea mixture and stir well. Taste and add more salt or pepper, if needed. Refrigerate at least 1 hour for flavors to meld. Garnish with remaining parsley just before serving.
To prepare the white fish, brush the bottom of a pyrex dish with grapeseed oil and then add the fish
Brush the fish with grapeseed oil and season with chili powder, paprika, minced garlic, pink salt, PP and top with diced and deseeded jalapeños (keep the seeds if you like it hot, hot, hot)
Place fish into the oven and cook for 9 minutes or until the fish becomes flaky
While the fish is cooking, add the onion, tomato, jalapeño, mango and lime juice to a bowl and refrigerate
If you have double stacked ovens, turn your second oven to ‘keep warm’ and add the tortillas straight onto the rack. If you only have one oven, once the fish is done and cooling, add the tortillas straight to the rack, but turn off the heat and simply close the oven door. The leftover heat with heat the tacos up. The tacos should be done in 3-5 minutes
Plating: Grab your tortilla and top with fish, mango salsa, avocado, micro green and some extra lime juice or hot sauce
Bring stock, saffron and sprigs of thyme to a simmer in a medium size pot. Keep at a simmer until ready to use.
Heat oil in a large flat bottom skillet over medium high heat. Quickly sear both sides of the vegetable: 2 minutes per side for the yellow squash and zucchini; 4 minutes per side for the eggplant. Set aside.
In the same skillet add chorizo, onion and bell pepper. Cook until the onions are translucent and starting to brown.
Add tomato paste, garlic, paprika and cayenne and continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add rice to skillet, continuing to stir, toasting the rice for 2 minutes. Add the orange zest, juice, saffron and chicken stock.
When the liquid boils, reduce heat to low. Stir the rice mixture frequently for 5 minutes. Stop stirring and allow rice to cook for 20 minutes. DO NOT STIR.
After 20 minutes, nestle the seared vegetables into the paella, cover the skillet and turn off the heat. Allow to rest for 15 minutes.
Garnish with parsley and serve immediately. Enjoy!
