Fish Tacos

17 Oct

Fish Tacos

Fish tacos cost a fortune in the restaurant but only pennies at home.

Maybe quarters?

Two pounds of a boneless, skinless, white flaky fish.

I love cod, sole, haddock or tilapea but you can use anything including shrimp or scallops.

Tacos can even be made with fried fish and they are very  very good.

I am trying to be a little healthy so my fish will be baked.

One teaspoon adobe seasoning

One teaspoon ground cumin

One teaspoon of paprika

One teaspoon  garlic powder

One teaspoon onion powder

One teaspoon cayenne pepper

Two tablespoon butter or oil

Season the fish with all these spices and set aside for 15 minutes.

One sliced  raw vidalla onion. Soft stir fried onion is also great.

One cup chopped cilantro

One cup chopped red pepper

One large chopped tomato

Two chopped avocados with lime juice on top

Sour cream


Chopped lettuce

Hot sauce

Diced jalapeno peppers

Sliced pickled peppers

Grated cheddar cheese

8 to 10 soft tortilla wraps

Heat the oven to 400 degrees

Bake the fish till it is cooked about 15 minutes. Test it by seeing if the fish flakes.

Heat the tortillas wrap in the microwave in a damp paper towel for 20 seconds.

Place on a plate and start layering .

Start with the sour cream on the bottom

Add the cheese and fish then all the other toppings you like.

Fold the tortilla in half and get as many napkins as you can.

These are messy but delicious.

My kids make a salad by putting a bed of lettuce  on the plate and adding everything on top.

I also serve this with nachos and quesco dip.

Spicy cole slaw is also a great side.






Fillet of fabulous sole

Fillet of Sole

This is so pretty, I didn’t want to eat it.

Lets be serious, I eat everything.

One pound of fillet of sole

One egg

1/3 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

One cup of seasoned bread crumbs

2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley.

Oil for frying

Heat a non stick pan with three tablespoons oil

Mix the egg, milk and garlic salt

Mix the bread crumbs with the parsley

Dip the sole in the egg wash then the bread crumbs

Make sure the oil is hot and do not crowd the pan.

Brown the fillets on each side for about three minutes till the crust become crisp.

Put the fillets on a plate to stay warm.

One large bag of frozen chopped spinach

3 cloves of minced garlic

4 tablespoons olive oil

Thaw the spinach and squeeze all the water out.

Brown the garlic in the oil and add the spinach.

Season with salt and red pepper.

Set aside.

Make a quick tossed salad .

I used a lemon dressing.

Place about two cups of dressed salad on a plate.

Top with one fish fillet.

Then add a large scoop of the spinach.

Top with another fillet.

I melted a slice of cheese on top.

The orange sauce is three tablespoons tartar sauce and one tablespoon siracha sauce.

The little red on top  is a baked tomato.

This was a really good meal.

Salmon with Brown Rice

8 May

How healthy can you get.

Again this was Josh’s dinner last night.

I had a huge tuna grinder for lunch so I didn’t eat any supper.

Two pieces of boneless salmon

Drizzle Mojo marinate on the salmon.

Add some salt and pepper.

Place the salmon, skin side down, on a piece of nonstick foil .

Put one paper thin slice of lemon on each piece of salmon.

Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 18 minutes.

The cooking time depends on the thickness of the salmon.

Do not flip them.

Serve with brown rice and a big salad with roasted vegetables.

Watch your waistline shrink.
