Fish Tacos


It always helps to have a helper in the kitchen.... even if he is clad in Buzz Lightyear underwear (worn backwards, of course) OVER his diaper. Gotta love the fashion sense of a 2 year old!




*** Let me preface this recipe by saying that I am not a fan of measuring, which is probably why I suck at baking! Everything is done "to taste". So if you are the type of person who needs exact measurements, my way of cooking is not for you!***



Donna's Favorite Fish Tacos


My favorite quick & healthy meal



Ingredients:

Fish of choice (tonight we used flounder, but grouper or mahi mahi tastes best)
Tortillas
Broccoli Slaw - or - shredded Cole Slaw mix (broccoli slaw is our preferred choice)
Cilantro, 1/2 a bunch or so
Green Onion, chopped
1 tsp. Jalepenos, finely chopped
tablespoon or two of Mayonnaise
juice of 1 Lime
1/2 tsp or so of Cumin or Cumin Seeds
Salt & Pepper to taste
Tomatoes (garnish)


Directions:

  1. Make Slaw Dressing: Mix together Mayo, Lime Juice, Cumin, Salt & Pepper.

  2. Combine dressing above with Slaw shreds, Cilantro, Green Onions and Jalepeno. Let this hang out on the counter at room temperature while you cook the fish.
  3. Grill your fish until done, either outside on the grill or inside in a pan. Sprinkle on your favorite seasonings - blackening seasoning is great.

  4. While you've got the grill going, go ahead and warm your tortillas up.

  5. Assemble: Fill your tortillas up with the fish, hot off the grill, top with a generous mound of slaw and some diced tomatoes from the garden.

Yum! Now I know most people enjoy fish tacos with fried fish instead of grilled. However, grilling the fish saves a TON of calories, is waaaaay healthier for you, and in my opinion just plain tastes better. If you simply must have it fried, then save yourself some time and cleanup and throw in some baked fish sticks.

Enjoy!
