  • sweetbreads
  • 1 part white vinegar
  • 8 parts cold water
  • salt
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • optional: a little dry mustard or chili powder
  • onion, chopped large
  • fresh lime juice

Rinse sweetbreads. Put in a large pot and add vinegar, water, and salt (a tablespoon or two for each pound of sweetbreads).

Bring to a boil, and reduce to simmer for 10 minutes. Drain. Cool sweetbreads in a bowl of ice water.

Pat sweetbreads dry, and toss with a little olive oil. Season with some salt and pepper, and optional seasonings.

Put the sweetbreads on skewers, interspersed with onion slices.

Grill until done.

Whisk fresh lime juice with a little olive oil, salt, and other seasonings as desired to make a lime vinaigrette. Baste finished sweetbreads with the lime vinaigrette.

Serve with rice, maybe yuca or tortillas on the side.
