fish tacos

I've started adding more fish into our diet 1. because it's so much better on our cholesterol levels 2. there are so many different choices (white and lean are my preference like Hake) 3. it's delicious! 

So since I've been making more of it, grilling it every single time with a side of veggies get's old.... very fast. This time I wanted to make something different that wasn't going to take for ever to prepare (took like 20 mn!) This recipe is easy, fast and soooooo yummy! 


Fish Tacos (makes 4 servings)

you'll need:
1 loin fish of your choice ( I used Hake- a type of codfish)
1 tbsp butter
salt and pepper (to taste)
4 corn tortillas ( you can use flour tortillas but I prefer the taste of corn)

for toppings:
cilantro
lettuce (I like the Organic girl 50/50 mix)
salsa of your choice
fresh lime

to prepare:
  •  make sure to dry the fish once it's thawed on a paper towel
  • season the fish with salt and pepper
  • grill fish on a very hot skillet (if you heat the skillet ahead of time and wait until it's very hot then add cold butter or olive oil-- you will get a better sear) 3 mn each side
  • toast tortillas on stove top using another pan 
  • once the fish is done searing- remove from pan 
  • shred the fish 
  • add fish to the tortillas
once you have the fish on the tortillas- add toppings and squeeze the lime on the tacos for a nice citrus twist- all done!


Buen Provecho!
