Fish Tacos

Who doesn’t love tacos!? Personally, fish tacos are my favourite kind of taco, simply because they’re so much lighter than beef tacos (which means you can eat more of them). They’re also a healthier alternative to beef tacos and the perfect substitute for non-meat lovers. I serve mine with a huge dollop of guacamole on the top (recipe below),   since you can never have too much guac!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

Fish:

2 Filets of Cod (or Haddock)

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper to Taste

1/2 Lime

1 Avocado

1 Clove of Garlic

1/2 Lime

Toppings:

2-4 Soft Tortillas

Corn Niblets

Shredded Purple Cabbage

Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Sliced Jalapeños

Chopped Tomato

Sour Cream

Salsa

Chopped Cilantro (Optional)

 

WHAT TO DO

Prepare all of your topping ingredients first by chopping the tomato, jalapeños, cilantro and shredding the purple cabbage and cheddar cheese. Next, begin making your guacamole by mincing the garlic. Place it in a small bowl with sliced avocado and juice from 1/2 of a lime. Mash everything together until smooth and season with salt and pepper to taste, set aside. In a medium frying pan, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil. Brush your fish filets with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then place them in the pan. Let fry for about 4 minutes, flip them over and fry for another 4 minutes, until both sides are lightly browned. Remove from frying pan and drizzle with lime juice. Assemble your tacos with the toppings you like (above ingredients are suggestions only). Enjoy!

Tip: If you want to spice up your tacos, mix together some chili powder, cumin, paprika & cayenne and sprinkle it over the fish while cooking!
