Super Flavorful Fish

fresh tombo ahi

We had the good fortune to be gifted some delicious fresh-off-the-boat albacore tuna (aka Tombo Ahi in Hawaii). So we decided to do a Mr. Kac’s Sampler.

A little Mr. Kac’s Crack Special.

A little Mr. Kac’s Crack Lemon.

And a little Mr. Kac’s Crack Spicy.

Don’t forget to season both sides. No extra seasoning needed!

We grilled it at 450 degrees for 2 minutes a side.

We didn’t put any oil on the fish, but you can brush a drizzle of olive oil before adding Mr. Kac’s if you like to help prevent it from sticking to the grill.

Delicious, easy, and super flavorful grilled fish using just Mr. Kac’s Crack seasonings.

Perfect Oven Chicken Breasts

To make Perfect Oven Chicken Breasts, start with bone-in chicken half breasts, which you can often find on sale, like we did at Vons for .87 cents a pound. Score!

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place chicken breasts in a glass baking pan. To read more about glass vs. metal baking pans, click here.

Season top and bottom with Mr. Kac’s Crack Special Seasoning.

Use a knife to separate chicken skin so you can sprinkle Mr. Kac’s Crack Special Seasoning under the skin. This will give you flavorful white chicken meat for tacos, sandwiches, salads, whatever.  The chicken skin  and ribs will help keep the meat moist while cooking.  

Cook at 425 degrees. The USDA recommends cooking chicken until tt reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. (But be careful not to overcook. We finds better results when we cook to a slightly lower temp and then let it sit on oven top for 5 minutes. This 4-pack of chicken breasts weighed 5.15 pounds and took 55 minutes to cook perfectly.

Depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts, cooking times can vary. 

If one chicken breast cooks faster than another, pull it out and place it on a plate while the others cook. 

The secret to Perfect Oven Chicken Breasts (besides Mr. Kac’s Crack Special Seasoning) is to not overcook the chicken!

Best Burger Recipe

Hamburger with grilled burger and topped with provolone cheese

To make the best burger ever, begin with one pound ground beef.  We love to use ground sirloin because it’s lower fat and makes a delicious meaty burger, no binders necessary.

hamburger patties

Press the meat into 3 one-half inch patties.

Mr. Kac's Crack Special seasoning bottle

Sprinkle both sides with Mr. Kac’s Special seasoning.

Cook on hot grill (425 degrees if you have a thermometer to check it) about 3-4 minutes per side. If your burgers are thin, they’ll cook faster.

When burgers on done, throw on buns for a quick toast.  We topped our burgers with provolone cheese after they were removed from the grill, plus shredded lettuce, onion, and tomato. Condiments to your liking.
