Tasty Fish Tacos

Proverbs 31:15 "She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens."

Ok, first off let me just assure you that while this sounds like a strange meal, don't knock it till ya try it - it is fresh, flavorful, and healthy!
As I've mentioned previously, my husband and I adore seafood. You name it, any kind of seafood and we love it. So....it completely stands to reason why we love this meal so much!
Fish tacos have become increasingly popular, especially in places like CA & AZ. It's a sort of Baja fresh food. It's both unique and memorable. Ok, I'll stop rambling and dish it. (ha!)

~What you'll need~(besides an open mind)
Flour or Corn tortillas -your preference
Tilapia (delicate white meat fish-easily found in any grocery store) - grilled or broiled, seasonings of choice
Mango Salsa (recipe below)
Red (it's actually purple) Cabbage- shredded
*Finish off with a little sour cream, hot sauce (we love siracha hot chili sauce) and more cilantro.

The wonderful thing about fish tacos is that they're completely up for your own creative interpretation. In fact, the pictures below have a few extra ingredients, just because I felt like it. You can use whatever kind of salsa you like, whatever kind of fish you want -fried, etc. Use your imagination and create a different kind of taco every time. It's fun and you'll love it!

*~Mango Salsa~*

2-3 ripe mangoes, cubed
Scallions or Red Onion (whichever you have on hand & prefer) diced, add to your taste
1/2 cucumber, seeds removed and diced
bunch of cilantro, roughly chopped
Jalapenos - diced, add to your taste (I like way more than the average human being)
splash of lime juice
pinch of salt
dab of honey -(especially if mangoes aren't sweet enough)

*Note - I rarely ever measure when I cook, combine these ingredients and alter according to your personal taste. This recipe is about what YOU like.

Aren't these beautiful?!?!? Remember that you eat with your eyes, meaning that if the food isn't appealing to the eye, it's doubtful it'll be appealing to your tummy.

P.S. The extra ingredients I used are as follows: sauteed zucchini & onions & corn cut fresh off the cob. If you so desire, omit the fish and use these ingredients to make it a delish veggie taco.....but then it wouldn't be a "fish taco" now would it? And that's what this post is all about, so.....

P.P.S. - Yes, I'm completely aware that I overfill my tacos. Always. Never fail. Ask my husband. ha ha!

  2. Yuck. lol But you sure do make them look nommie!
