Sorry I’ve been MIA for a while, we’ve been moving and haven’t really been cooking lately! My kitchen is getting back to normal so I thought I’d post a few things we’ve done lately.
I’ve been hearing about fish tacos everywhere lately. So just to kick it up a notch, we did fried fish tacos and used the soft shells. It’s fun to have a little break from the norm every once in a while.
Fried Fish Soft Tacos
6-8 tilapia fillets, cut in half
oil for frying
Flour batter of your choice, we like Zatarain’s Fish Fry with lemon added
Desired seasonings for fish, we like mustard, Tony’s Creole Seasoning, lemon pepper, garlic powder and onion powder
tartar sauce – see recipe below
desired toppings, we used diced tomato, cheese, and avocado slices
soft taco shells/small burrito shells
Coat fish fillets in mustard, then sprinkle seasonings over and mix well. Toss in flour batter and fry in hot oil till golden brown and crispy.
Serve on warmed tortillas with desired toppings.
Connie’s Tartar Sauce
1 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
2 TBSP dill relish
2 TBSP onion, finely chopped
2 TBSP olives, finely chopped (I used green olives with the pimento removed – 12 equals 2 TBSP)
2 TBSP green onions, finely chopped
1 tsp lemon juice
Mix well in bowl and chill before serving.
Verdict: Fan-freaking-tabulous!! This will definitely join in the dinner rotation! It was so easy and fun!
