Steak Marinade & Seafood Fritatta

Steak Marinade
Olive oil
Red Wine Vinegar
Balsamic Vinegar
Fresh Lime Juice (plus the limes tossed in)

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Place steaks in ziplock bag, pour marinade over and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Grill and enjoy!

Bonus! the leftovers can be used to make mean fajitas. We combined some leftover BBQ chicken, the leftover steaks, onions, peppers, covered them with fresh lime juce and sauteed them up with seasoning (including the limes tossed in for flavoring). Place mix in a tortilla, sprinkle with cheese, roll up and bake on a cookie sheet for 5 minutes.

Seafood Frittata
4-6 eggs
various seafood, mixed together (we had a mix of crab, shrimp, tuna and sea bass) and sprinkled with fresh lime juice

Heat a non-stick pan over high heat. Whisk eggs thoroughly and add seafood to mix. Spray pan with cooking spray, reduce heat to medium and add the egg mixture. Cook the eggs, gently pulling the sides away from the pan to allow the batter to flow underneath, until the mixture is set and top is just runny. Using creative kitchen techniques, flip the mixture onto a plate and then slide back into the pan (or just use a frittata pan if you have one. or finish it under a broiler, if possible). Finish cooking until the eggs are done. Slice into wedges and serve.
