Recipe of the Day - La Roca Restaurant



Al pastor Shrimp

- Recipe -


Ingredients

Recipe
Jumbo Shrimp
5 Pieces
Pineapple Puree
100 Grs.
Al Pastor Sauce (Marinade)
50 Ml
Fried Corn Tortilla strips
30. Grs.
Salt
2 Grs.
Black Pepper
1 Grs.
Olive Oil
2 Ml




MARINADE:
1 whole guajillo chile pepper — dried
1 clove garlic — unpeeled
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup onion — chopped
2 small tomatoes — quartered
2 tablespoons achiote paste

PINEAPPLE PUREE:
2 1/2 cups fresh pineapple — diced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
CILANTRO SAUCE:
1 bunch cilantro — about 1 1/2 cups once stems are cut off
1/4 cup onion — diced
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt



Gently open the dried guajillo chiles and remove the seeds and the stem. In a large nonstick frying pan (large enough to use for cooking the shrimp), toast the guajillo chile with the clove of garlic over medium heat until the garlic clove has begun to blacken in spots. Turn chile pieces and garlic over to prevent burning. This will take about 5 minutes or so.
2. Allow garlic to cool, then remove papery skin and stem. Cut up the chile in bite-sized pieces and add to blender container, with the garlic, orange juice, onion, tomato and achiote paste. Puree until the sauce is almost smooth. Season with salt to taste.
3. Place shrimp in a small flat plate or container (one layer thick) and pour some of the sauce over. Turn shrimp so it’s coated well. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours. When you remove the shrimp from the marinade, discard that part of the marinade as it’s been in contact with raw fish.
4. CILANTRO SAUCE: Make this within a hour before serving as the cilantro will turn dark. Combine in a blender or food processor the cilantro, onion, water and oil. Blend, scraping down the sides, until it’s turned to a smooth sauce. Set aside.
5. SHRIMP: Melt butter in frying pan (the pan used in step 1). Remove shrimp from marinade, leaving any residual sauce on the shrimp and add to the pan. Cook over medium heat, turning once or twice, until shrimp is cooked through, 3-4 minutes (depends on the size of the shrimp). Add a little bit of the marinade if the pan begins to run dry, drizzling it on the shrimp itself.

THE ARCH - CABO SAN LUCAS -



El Arco is an exceedingly popular tourist attraction. The unique rock formation stretches out into the crystal-clear waters where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. No wonder it is the number one reason for countless vacation photos. 




A visit to the Land's End of the Baja Peninsula, next door to Grand Solmar, is undoubtedly one of the most popular things to do in Cabo San Lucas. In every sense, this site is not to be missed.




Whether viewed from a distance or from almost any vantage point, the image of El Arco is synonymous with Cabo San Lucas. By the way, there’s a reason it’s called Land’s End. If you followed a direct line south from here, you would not touch land again until you reached the South Pole.


 Grand Solmar Land's End



Getting there is easy. Just hail a boat taxi (some with glass bottoms) from the Cabo San Lucas marina. You can view the iconic golden arch from your boat or ask the captain to drop you off at Lover’s Beach (located near the Arch) and arrange for a pick-up time. Enroute, you’ll pass lazy sea lions basking on the rocks.

La Playa del Amor en Los Cabos

La Playa del Amor es un espectáculo natural que no te puedes perder entre el Océano Pacifico y el Mar de Cortes, ubicada al pie del famoso icono turístico del destino: El Arco.


Se trata de la última playa bañada por las aguas del Mar de Cortes antes de llegar al Océano Pacífico, ofrece aguas cristalinas y una diversidad de vida marina. A corta distancia por ambos lados encontramos colonias de lobos marinos tomando el sol sobre las rocas. También podemos encontrar inofensivas mantarayas nadando tranquilamente como si volaran sobre el mar.  A esta playa se puede tener acceso únicamente a través de un taxi acuático desde la Playa El Medano ó desde la Marina de Cabo San Lucas.



Entre las actividades que se pueden realizar en esta playa al final de la Tierra, además de caminar, es el snorkel pero únicamente del lado de la bahía, ya que del lado Océano Pacífico tenemos la Playa del Divorcio altamente peligrosa para nadar ó acercarse a la orilla debido al alto oleaje.

La Playa del Amor es perfecta para pasar el día con tu pareja admirando el extraordinario paisaje.

His Majesty The King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf Visits Los Cabos




His Majesty The King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf Visits Los Cabos
The King of Sweden jetted off to Los Cabos to enjoy the destination's sport fishing

Los Cabos, Mexico (February 2, 2016) - The King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf arrived in Los Cabos on January 23 to spend a week-long vacation at Solmar Hotels & Resorts. King Carl Gustaf practiced one of his lifelong hobbies, sport fishing, together with his entourage. As part of his agenda, the King met with local marine biologists and entrepreneurs to learn about the success story of Los Cabos combining fishing and tourism in a sustainable way.
 
His Majesty's visit was inspired by the popular Swedish documentary, "The Old Man and the Sea - The Expedition," where Solmar's founder, the late Don Luis Bulnes, played a key role being a strong supporter of the project even during its early stages. The Martin Falklind documentary depicts an adventurous journey as two friends follow in the footsteps of Hemingway going Marlin fishing off a kayak. Recreating the narrative, Falklind, the filmmaker, accompanied the king in search of a marlin in the abounding waters of Los Cabos. 

"It's an honor to welcome King Carl XVI Gustaf to  Grand Solmar Land's End Resort & Spa, a place built by a true visionary and pioneer of tourism in Los Cabos, Don Luis Bulnes," said Ricardo Orozco, Solmar Hotel & Resorts' Vice President of Operations.

King Carl Gustaf, the Honorary President for the World Wildlife Fund in Sweden, has long been interested and active in the long-term health of our oceans and conservation of marine life, with projects that include the protection of salmon and improving the potential of Sweden as a sport fishing nation. His Majesty looked to Los Cabos as an inspiration of a thriving tourism destination relying on the sea for its livelihood. One of the visit's goals was taking back valuable knowledge to position sustainable sport fishing as a mean to create growth, employment and investment in his country- a goal similarly shared and achieved by Don Luis Bulnes.

The Solmar legacy dates back to the 1950s when Don Luis, a young tuna cannery manager, embarked on an adventure of his own as he built the area's first sport fishing fleet and later a five-property hotel collection, putting Cabo on the tourism map. Mr. Bulnes was also an advocate of sustainable fishing and founder of the Mexican Billfish Foundation.

As part of his stay, King Carl Gustaf enjoyed a variety of fishing expeditions, from navigating in small pangas to fishing aboard a large big game boat with the namesake of Don Luis. During his stay, the King was delighted to catch a striped marlin, which was tagged and released.

Taking advantage of prime whale watching season in Los Cabos, his Majesty also participated in a whale watching excursion. Another highlight of his trip was snorkeling with whale sharks in La Paz.
