Friday...FISH TACOS! (I made these for the boys...personally, I don't eat most things that swim...I'm missing that taste gene or something because it ALL tastes like rotten garbage to me).
That being said.....the boys love fish tacos after having the real deal from a little cafe in Mexico a few years ago. I took a tiny gaggy taste just to be able to know what to do to recreate it at home.
Here's how it went down....
Started with some frozen Tilapia filets
I cut into strips, doused them with fresh lime juice and then did a quick toss in some beaten egg and then rolled them in panko (bread crumbs) and then blasted them in a HOT (400) oven with a shot of cooking spray on top (for browning) for about 10 minutes. Here's what they look like when they're done...
Salinger got those extra little creamated parts of extra bread crumbs!
Shredded up some Napa cabbage and blended up some sour cream with lime juice, cilantro and a little salt (for sauce) and then they ate them on tortillas.
Finished plate with a Spanish rice/pilaf-y thing I tossed together, some cheesy refried beans and a VIRGIN strawberry sugar free (mix) Margarita (that really tasted like cough syrup...it wasn't good)
The rice thing had frozen pepper/onion strips from the freezer AND some of the cilantro lime corn on the cob that I had cut off the cob and frozen a while back...so technically it was a player in the freezer game too!
