Fish Tacos

Now that I am living back in WA, Holly and I have started up our tradition of making a new meal together for our families on Saturday nights. We have a lot of fun!! Anyway, this last week i receive a text from Holly asking what we should do for dinner? Jimmy and I watch a lot of Food Network and I have come to love Aarti Party! If you haven't got a chance to check out her show, you should... it is great! She cooks with a lot of different spices and always has a unique twist on how to make things. I was so excited to try these Fish Tacos and couldn't wait to tell Holly my idea....this is the text i received back.... "What?!? Ugh, Sick!!!" LOL, I guess I forgot she is not a big fan of fish!! She was willing to try it though and it was awesome!! Def something that you should try! The Mayo that you make to go with it puts the taco over the top!

For sides we found two great recipes on The Sisters Cafe.... Cilantro Lime Rice and Garlic Black Beans. Nummy!

Marinade for the fish... olive oil, ground coriander, ancho chile powder, cinnamon, salt and pepper.

Cut the fish into chunks....

Add fish to marinade....

Coat completely. Set aside.

To make the Mayo: Put mayo, garlic, mint cumin and lime juice in food processor. Whizz until smooth.

Warm a large saute pan over medium heat. Add fish and cook about 3 minutes per side. Do not overcook!

Prepare all your toppings... cabbage, cilantro, lime, scallions and Quesco Fresco!

Enjoy!!! Delicious!
Served with Cilantro Lime Rice and Garlic Black Beans.

Want to make it a little healthier? Use outside of cabbage and
layer ingredients!

  4. fish was all over top chef tonight... it made me crave lettuce wraps and fish tacos- cant wait to try this! what other fish do you think would be good with this marinade?

  5. I think halibut would be great in these tacos as well as cod or maybe even snapper. Let us know if you try any of these and how they are! :)
