Fish #TacoTuesday

Knocked out these Fish Tacos last night for the kids and they crushed! 2 big thumbs up…will do again and again. It may look like a lot of work, but they were truly worth it and it was actually a lot faster than I thought. I included ingredients below for ease of shopping, check the links for how-to’s:

  • This Blackened Cod recipe although I added lemon juice to it before applying ingredients, let it all sit about an hour and then drained the lemon juice before blackening. I’m not married to this fish, but it came out pretty good, but think the rest of the stuff below really made it…any other suggestions let me know as I’d be game. Ingredients are here, for the how-to check the link above:
    • 1 1/2 lb cod fish (cut into 3 inch long fillets)
    • 1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tsp oregano
    • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp black pepper
    • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    • 2 tbsp canola oil
    • I added lemon juice from 1 lemon
  • And this fish taco sauce, and I changed the sour cream to yogurt (although Honey Greek Gods yogurt which was all I had and it was yummy…will do again). Ingredients are here, for the how-to check the link:
    • 3 tablespoons sour cream (I subbed in Greek Yogurt here)
    • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce
  • Costco Uncooked Flour Tortillas:Heat up a pan and cook and as good as hand made…I love these tortillas and they make a huge difference
  • Killer, Creamy Black Beans: these take some time…I usually make them in big batches and freeze them down as they are just as good when you pull them out:
    • 1lb bag dry black beans
    • Chicken Stock
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
    • Olive oil
  • This groovy Mexican slaw. Ingredients are here, for the how to check the link:
    •  14-ounce package prepared coleslaw mix
    • ¼ small red onion, thinly sliced
    • ¼ cup chopped cilantro leaves
    • ⅓ cup canola oil
    • 2 limes, juiced (about ¼ cup)
    • 3 cloves garlic, pressed (I used garlic powder)
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
    • 1 teaspoon oregano
    • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 6 dashes hot sauce
    • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Avocado, slice
  • Your favorite hot sauce if you like. My favorite for this is Tapatio
  • I also added these groovy pickled red onions that I made well ahead of time…they are amazing

Also, consider washing it down with this Gold Margarita…put a little Tajin and salt on the rim for this one to change it up…Tajin rocks!
