So I had some salmon in the fridge for Friday night dinner and didn’t really fancy the old grilled fish and veg type thing. I decided to try my hand at fish taco’s. When I told my husband what the evening meal was he looked a little concerned! I understood because I have never really jumped on the “fish taco” band wagon. I have always believed that taco’s should only be made with chicken or beef right? Well I am glad I followed through as I can say I have busted the myth for myself and husband. Fish taco’s are just as good, if not better, than the chicken or beef variety. Seriously YUM. They were so good I wanted to share my recipe with you which you can find below. The taco’s were devoured before I took any photos but they looked similar to the pic above. ( just not as styled!)
2 Fish Fillets cut into cubes ( I used salmon with the skin on but any white flesh would be suitable)
Mexican spice ( I actually used a Moroccan spice and it still tasted great)
1 ripe avocado
Bunch of coriander
Tomato and Corn Salad
2 vine ripened tomatoes finely diced
1 cup corn kernels ( I just used tinned kernels but corn on the cob would also be suitable)
Dressing: shake 2 parts Olive Oil, 1 part red wine vinegar, salt and pepper
Red Cabbage shredded
Sour Cream with a dash of lemon juice.
*Black beans would be a great addition to the salad, I couldn’t find any at Coles damn it!
Have a few bowls handy so you can keep all of the ingredients separate and ready to go for assembly – cabbage, sour cream etc.
To make guacomale, scoop out the avocado flesh, place in a bowl and mash with a fork. Roughly chop your coriander and add to the avocado then drizzle your lime juice over, season well and give it all a loose mix.
To prepare salad, place tomatoes and corn in a bowl and drizzle with the dressing.
Toss fish in the spices and oil then BBQ until cooked through and skin is crispy. ( You can also lightly fry in a pan).
Lightly toast your tortillas either on the BBQ or oven.
Then have fun and assemble your tortillas with guacamole, shredded cabbage, tomato and corn salad, crispy fish and sour cream drizzle!
It was delicious and a fun meal for a Friday night. Love BG xo
