Spicy Fish Tacos
Most often when you think of fish tacos you can picture a chewy tortilla, some cheese and often battered fried fish with some lovely sauce. This isn’t that type of fish taco. No dairy, no tortilla and no batter. I probably went a little too spicy on the fish so I will back it down from burnt hell for this post.
Fresh Fish (cod, snapper, tilapia)
Dusting of chili powder, salt, cumin and Slap Ya Mama
Green onions (whites and light greens)
2 cloves of garlic
splash of white wine
2 tsp of lime juice
Green Onions (green parts)
Happy Tomato Salsa
Bibb or Butter lettuce
Prepare your lettuce, carrots, and guacamole. For the guacamole mash up your avocado with lime juice, cilantro, and Tajin spice with a touch of Salt. Taste and adjust accordingly.
For the fish dust with seasoning. In a medium heated pan add a pat of butter with green onions and then your fish. Press a garlic clove or two on top of the fish and on the turn add a splash of white wine. Cut into pieces for serving.
Chicken Lettuce Taco
I grilled up three chicken breasts the other day (see Chicken Kale Salad) for some lunches this week. I had a salad yesterday so decided to go Mexican today. While at Central Market the other day a guy was handing out samples of a salsa called Happy Tomato Fresh Salsa . My wife brought a jar home and I tried it for the first time and it’s really great. All natural and organic with a lot of locally sourced ingredients. Very fresh and it reminds of La Taqueria in College Station ages ago. www.happy-tomato.com
Organic Free Range Chicken Breast
Organic unrefined Coconut Oil
Penzey’s Buttermilk Seasoning
Penzey’s Ruth Ann’s Muskego Ave Chicken and Fish Seasoning (lemon peel, K Salt, Pepper, garlic, onion)
Smidge of Kosher salt
Happy Tomato Fresh Salsa
I made the chicken the day prior and cut it up and served cold. Avocado sliced and diced with lime juice to keep from browning. Happy Tomato Fresh Salsa or anything that is organic, sugar and chemical free.
Assemble like tacos or fajitas.
