These fish tacos are sooo good! Since Mexican food is a staple at our house, it’s nice to switch up the usual black or refried beans with some meat (and by meat, I mean fish!). The best part of these tacos was coming home after a long day at work expecting to start cooking and finding that my husband already had everything made–I guess I’ll keep him around for awhile. ;)
Fish Tacos Recipe
Makes 4 tacos
4 corn tortillas
1/2 pound fresh cod
1/4 red onion, chopped
2 cups green cabbage
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 trader joe’s guacamole kit (or make you’re own!)
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
flour, for breading
canola oil, for frying
In a medium bowl, combine mayo, cabbage, red onion, and salt and pepper to make coleslaw. Mix until combined, cover, and refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes.
Over medium heat, place oil in frying pan. While the oil heats up, coat fish with flour then fry in pan until browned, about 3 minutes on each side. Break fish into smaller pieces with spatula.
In a small bowl, add guacamole ingredients and combine.
Toast tortillas directly on the gas burner (or in the pan if you don’t have gas) until slightly crispy.
Assemble tacos: spread guacamole over each tortilla (helps fish stick), add fish, coleslaw and enjoy!
Oh, and the second best part of these tacos–homemade margaritas! I was craving pina coladas, but these definitely hit the spot for now. Don’t worry, I’ll post the margarita recipe soon!
