Another meet coffee marinated snack to share or pass around the living room. Rachel created this recipe after drinking Manhattan Special soda, a fizzy, coffee-flavored drink created in 1895.

The salmon in this recipe is covered with a blend of coffee, chilli powder, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and olive oil. It is served with a cabbage slaw mixed in a puree of tomatillos, cilantro, garlic, sour cream, and avocados. This one is also good to have on the table for the guests to build their own tortilla.
