FISH TACOS

FISH TACOS 

 

1/4 cup olive oil

2 lbs. white fish (haddock or cod)

2 Tbs. Cajun seasoning or to taste (see recipe below)

2 cups Mexican mix shredded cheese or Cheddar

8 flour tortillas

Salsa (see recipe below)

1, 10 oz. bag of cole slaw mix

Mexican Crema sauce (see recipe below)

Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle Cajun seasoning over fish and rub into the flesh (the seasoning is spicy, so use carefully depending on how much heat you like). Place seasoned filets in the skillet and cook about 2 minutes per side until just cooked through. Liberally sprinkle the cheese the fish, reduce heat to low, and cover the pan. Once cheese is melted, turn off the heat but keep covered until ready to use.

 

Lightly brush each tortilla with oil on both sides. Please one by one in a hot non-stick skillet and toast on each side until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.

 

To assemble tacos, place a small piece of fish down the center of each tortilla. Top with about 2-3 Tbs. salsa, ¼ cup cole slaw mix, and drizzle with the crema (about 2-3 Tbs.).
