Here's my easy slow cooker chicken taco recipe.

Ingredients: Part A.
2-3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

1 Packet of Store Bought Taco Seasoning

1 Cup Water
____________________________________________________________
Part B.
Canola or Vegetable Oil

1 Package of Corn Tortillas

1 Can of Refried Beans

Various Taco Toppings such as Cheese, Sour Cream, Guacamole, Salsa, or Pico De Gallo
_____________________________________________________________
Part A. Plug in your slow cooker and set to high heat. Add chicken breasts and water and let cook for 4-6 hours. Shred the chicken and drain any excess moisture. Pour in taco seasoning and mix until thoroughly combined. Leave on lowest heat setting and move next part.

Part B. Pour oil of choice into a large frying pan, making sure there is almost enough to submerge a tortilla. Turn heat to medium high and add tortillas one at a time to the pan. While frying push down on the tortilla to allow the oil to coat the inside, when it starts to inflate and bubble fold the tortilla in halve with your utensil and fry the outside until crispy. Set done tortillas aside on a plate covered with paper towels and let the oil drain. When the tortillas are cooled add heated refried beans, chicken, and toppings to your taste. Enjoy.

I have no idea what the dish is called since I don't follow recipes but mix what I assume will taste nice.
I'm pretty sure this is an actual dish, though, since it tastes friggin supreme. It's a scampi - noodle teriyaki style dish.

The main ingredients are: Scampi, Teriyaki sauce, greens, bell peppers, eggs, flour, herbs, egg noodles, mushrooms, sake, prawn chips.

First, you need to make breaded scampi (some stores sell them breaded but I prefer to make it from scratch)
-Pat the scampi/prawns until they are dry and then toss in the flour, dip into whipped eggs and cover them with crumbs and herbs(parsley, basil or whatever)
-Then boil some water and toss in the noodles(what kind of noodles is up to you, I mainly use egg noodles)

-stir fry the breaded scampi for just a few minutes(easy to see the colouring on the bread when it's ready)
-Turn down the heat and toss in some mushrooms, what kind is up to you, I mainly use shitake, champignon/portobello. Make sure you cut them up beforehand.
-After about a minute, toss in some homemade salad, but don't overdo it, as it can degrade the flavour of the dish. Just use some greens, bell peppers and maybe a bit of onion(will help to define the whole taste).

The stir fry should just be simmering now, toss in the noodles and the teriyaki sauce, stir around and serve. To add some extra flavour, mix in some sake in the teriyaki sauce.

Before you serve it, place some prawn chips on the plate to act as the bedding for the dish. They will absorb a lot of flavour, it tastes great.

I might write up another recipe I like to use later if I feel like it. I've developed a tasty pasta dish(couldn't find a better word for just messing around with recipes).

I guess that was the reply to the omelette post. The dish I wrote down is just a random new dish, wasn't a reply to the previous post.

Here's a favorite of mine...

Cajun Blackened Salmon


Ingredients:
1 Fillet of Salmon descaled and cut into 4 pieces
Cajun seasoning (store bought or homemade)
Light olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
Sea Salt


- Generously cover the top (pink) part of the salmon with Cajun seasoning leaving the sides bare, about 1-2 tbs. per piece

- Heat oil in a 12 in. cast iron skillet over high-heat until it begins to smoke (it should cover the entire pan, around 1/2 cm deep)

- Once the oil is ready, turn off the heat and gently lay the salmon in the pan one piece at a time seasoned side down (make sure to avoid splashing yourself... 2nd degree burns are not fun) turn the burner back on to medium-high

- After about 3 min. flip the salmon over, the seasonings should have formed a dark brown or even black crust on top of the fish

- Let the skin side cook for 2-4 min. depending on the thickness of your fish. The skin should be crispy and the salmon should be flaky when done.

- Remove the fish from the pan and drizzle with lemon juice, serve immediately with your choice of sides (I usually just have it over white rice but it's entirely up to you)

Yeah, I can see how you would think that.

Well, while I'm here, I'll write down another recipe I like to use:

Mr Robots Cod extraordinaire

What you will need: Cod fillet, garlic, greens (basil,parsley,whatever), lemon, potatoes, butter, red wine vinegar, shallots, sugar, roasted almonds, rice flour and smoked paprika(bell peppers).

1. Making the cod spice blend - you can either purchase a spice blend in stores, or make it yourself with select ingredients(I prefer it). You only need to mix a small cup of rice flour with some crushed smoked bell peppers(paprika). You can add in some finely cut herbs if you have any to spare from the batch you buy. Don't put in any salt, there is plenty of that in the other stages.

2. Roasting the potatoes - cut the potatoes into chips, place them on a sheet pan, drizzle with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper(don't overdo it). Toss the potatoes to thoroughly coat them. put them in the oven for about 18-20 minutes or until they have a nice light brown colour(flip them halfway through). Take them out and set them aside in a bowl, cover them so that they remain warm

3. While the potatoes are in the oven, combine the shallot, sugar, vinegar and a bit of water(around 1/4 cup but no need to be super accurate) in a small pot. season with salt and pepper. heat until boiling and stir occasionally. After about 1-2 minutes of boiling, set the pot aside to cool, stirring occasionally for at least 10 minutes, then season some more with salt and pepper(make sure to taste).

4. While the pot is cooling, place the spice blend you made earlier on a plate. Pat the cod fillets dry with paper towels, season with salt and pepper on both sides(not a lot, since Cod is very flavoury with just a bit of salt). Coat 1 side of the fillet in the spice blend(tap of the excess). In a medium sized pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high and add the fillets with the coated side down. After 3-5 minutes, flip the fillets and cook 1-2 minutes(both sides should be lightly browned).

5. The sauce - add the butter, garlic, and 1/4 cup of water to the pan(with the fillets). season with salt and pepper(there is a lot of seasoning in total so make sure you do not put too much in). Cook, occasionally stirring the sauce with the spoon and pour it over the fillets. After 2-3 minutes, or until the cod is coated and thoroughly cooked, turn off the heat and top it with the juice of 2 lemon wedges. and again season with salt and pepper to taste.

That's it, drain the juice from the pot with the shallots but don't discard it! Add the shallots in the bowl with the roasted potatoes, add the greens, then pour some of the shallot juice over the bowl(not a lot, just a small bit) and squeeze the last remaining lemon wedges in the bowl(it may be too much for some, so it's fine to just use one wedge in both cases). Gently toss and combine before topping off with the Cod fillets and garnish with the almonds.

It may sound like it's an advanced meal, but it's very easy to make and I just wrote down to the finest detail for you.
