Fish Tacos

As my husband and I have travelled around, we've found several places that make excellent fish tacos.  I started reviewing lots of fish taco recipes and found that they wouldn't be that hard to make at home.  I like to try new variety and simplicity is also good.

For this particular recipe, I reviewed  4 recipes and picked and chose a few things from each recipe.  The recipe has 3 basic pieces - cole slaw salad, fresh salsa, and fish.

Cole Slaw Salad

4 cups cole slaw mix
1 teaspoon sea salt
Juice of one lime
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon dill weed
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped
2 green onions slices
2 tablespoons sugar

Mix all ingredients and allow to sit for at least 30 minutes so flavors blend

Fresh Salsa

3 roma tomatoes diced
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped
1/4 red onion diced
1 teaspoon garlic diced
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients and allow to sit for at least 30 minutes

Fish

3 filets of white fish - cod, tilapia, etc
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin

Thaw fish and then sprinkle with paprika, chili powder, and cumin.  Allow to sit for 10 - 30 minutes
Cook in fry pan 4-5 minutes until done.

Assemble tacos:

Place cole slaw mix, then salsa, the pieces of fish, you can also add avocado, cheese, and taco sauce or sweet and sour sauce for a sweeter taste.  Enjoy!
