Fresh nopales! How come I've never tried these?! I finally bought several paddles from the guy who sells them at our Sunday flea. A guy stands and shaves the spines. Sold RTC at $2.00 a pound.
Most recipes suggest boiling/stewing them. But I finally found that grilling was an option. Oh, yes!!!
Salt, pepper, olive oil. Super hot grill pan. Cook maybe 5 minutes per side. And, OMG! These are so delicious!
(Tonight, in a salad of red pepper and red onion. No vinegar, just the residual OO.)
