Fish Tacos and Fish n’ Chips….two of my favorite things! Fish Tacos are far easier to make “clean” than Fish n’ Chips. I’ll have to figure that one out! For now, it’s one of my favorite “treats” when I go out to eat.
I do have to get snobby about the fish for a sec. Tilapia is a go-to for a lot of people for white fish. It’s good…I like it. HOWEVER, it’s not worth it if you care at all about Omega 3 (which you should!!). Read this article for more info (there are other reasons it’s not the best pick, but this is the #1 for me). Just know that Salmon has about 10x more Omega 3!
Alrighty. So here’s the super easy recipe! You can add things like avocado, plain Greek yogurt… this just happens to be what I had on hand:
1- 5 oz Cod fillet
Lime juice, to taste
1/2 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp fresh cilantro
Ground black pepper, to taste
2 small corn tortillas
Place fish in small pan, squeeze lime juice over it along with minced garlic and cilantro. Cook fish on stove top on medium for 8-10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily. If you desire, add a small amount of olive oil. I didn’t need any. Season with pepper to taste.
Heat corn tortillas in large pan on med-high just until browned. I did spray a small amount of olive oil in the pan.
Flake fish and put in tortilla along with cabbage and salsa.
