Mini Mushroom Tacos Method

  1. Place the avocado flesh in a small plastic jug. Squeeze in the juice of 1 lime and generously season with salt and pepper. Add a few dashes of your favourite hot sauce or half a fresh chilli. Blend with a stick blender until creamy and smooth. Set aside in the fridge.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  3. In a large roasting pan, combine the mushrooms with the olive oil, salt, garlic, paprika, ground cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, lemon zest and pepper. Toss to coat and roast for 10 minutes. Toss with the fresh parsley as the mushrooms come out of the oven.
  4. Grill / Char the tortillas lightly on a griddle pan or over and open flame.
  5. Assemble your tacos with a generous swish of guacamole, a pile of mushrooms, fresh cubes of pineapple, a few pieces of pickled onion and a sprig of fresh coriander. Fold up and enjoy.
  6. Gin Pairing: Fill desired glass with ice and add a wedge of pineapple. Pour in the Six Dogs Gin, top with ginger ale and garnish with a piece of the pineapple crown.
  7. Gin Pairing Note: Juniper notes from the Six Dogs Gin work well with the strong flavors from the mushroom tacos. Its added punch is a great balance to the tangy notes of the pickled red onion and the sweet hints from the pineapple. The Six Dogs’ bold flavor is a perfect match for these tacos, the crisp and clean botanical notes in the gin complement as well as stand up to the spiciness of the food.
