Biscuit Fish Tacos and Asparagus Pesto Pasta

Believe it.

What your eyeballs are peeping right now is the absolute fist bumpin’ truth. Fish tacos wrapped. in. buttermilk. biscuits.

Now, I can’t actually take credit for this 8th wonder of the world, as someone already doth created this masterful recipe for the annual Pillsbury Bake-Off. Well, the insanely popular event kicked off again yesterday and, as you know, I write for Tablespoon, which is General Mills, which is Pillsbury, which I know you’re like YAWN, blah blah blah. Anyway, I got to pick an old recipe to help promote it, so of freaking course, when I caught but a mere glimpse of these fish tacos wrapped in BISCUITS, my head fell off its hinges, rolled down the street and into someone’s flower bed.

And I have to say, they did a really nice job with the flower bed arrangements. Like with color, and having the taller ones in the back and the shorter ones up front. And black mulch which is always my favorite. And cute little bricks bordering the bed making it all manicured-like.


Hey, Julie! I’ve been watching your instragrams and tweeties from the bake-off. Tell me, have you gotten to touch Martha’s hair yet?! And oh! What about Lucinda Scala Quinn? TELL ME YOU’VE TOUCHED HER EYEBROWS.

Here’s that full story and recipe, biscuit fish taco lover boys and girls.

But wait! THERE’S MORE. (I’ve always wanted to say that.)

You know my obsession with all things pesto right now. I’m seriously about to make a pesto quilt for my bed and eat through it over the coming months.

I’ll brush my teeth before I fall asleep though.

Can you even begin to guess what’s in this pesto? Ohhhh I can’t wait to see the look on your face when you find out! I bet you don’t even have the slightest IDE–oh, the title. Right.

You should make this before my head falls off again. Here you go, asparagus pesto pasta obsessed lads and lassies.

    I just saw someone else do the asparagus pesto thing and my mind was blown. Completely blown. I actually really like raw asparagus (when it's fresh, which is like now) so I can't wait to it out.

    Those pillsbury contestants are crafty. Like Beastie Boys crafty. The things you can do with biscuit dough, who would have thunk it?

    I absolutely love your blog, your recipes, and your sense of humor! Thank you! Now, for the selfish among there a way to get your recipes in an importable format (Is that a word???) For those of us that use recipe apps, the separated versions just don't work....I know, I'm greedy! (The pesto looks awesome, btw...AND I got asparagus in my bountiful basket this week, so I'm totally in!)

      Why thank you, Sandy! I'd LOVE to get these recipes in an importable format.!? I can ask my wizard website friend, but if you have any suggestions, I'm all ears! Thanks for reading! -b

        I'm really not a computer-person (more brain would mean less room to feed my face), but I copied this from my recipe app's site. It includes links to two common ways to include recipes...and now we've exceeded my knowledge base. Your techie friends will probably think it's easy-schmeezie. Lest this seem like flagrant marketing, I'm not affiliated with this application (although I have asked them to link to yours, several times.) In fact, I really wish the developers would make the app available on the droid platform, as I refuse to give up my droid for an iphone (yes, I AM that attached to flash, lol!) Having said that, the app really is so good that it's kept me using my ipad as my primary "recipe box"...everything from everywhere I love in one place means less need for brain and more room to indulge in yummy goodness (see above.) just wish I could run it on my phone...I know...greedy. check it out if you haven't already. Anyway, once again, your sense of humor rocks...and your recipes are awesome. Thanks for considering putting them into a more (save it to my electronic brain so my face can focus on food) user friendly format. [only now that i have (hopefully) sufficiently sucked up will i mutter softly under my breath....go buckeyes!] sandy

    Biscuit Fish? That sounds like a new breed of flounder… ;) No, not as funny as I thought when I first wrote this out…the coffee must not be kicking in yet. I like the idea of these bad boys, what's wrong with a little extra carbs wrapping your fish tacos? Nothing, that's what!

    Love this idea! Must. make. immediately. I am BIG fan of pestos too. I recently used some avocados in a pesto and it was freakin' delish.
