I don’t know what it is about warm weather, but it makes me crave all things seafood. So today I’m kicking off what will hopefully SOON be 100% spring instead of this 80/20 split (war) we’ve got going on with winter. Girl BYE we are done with you!!
You know how much I love an easy, delicious, *healthy* 30-minute meal and this one is no different. It took me a little longer because I wanted a veggie side to go with, but if you skip the side and/or buy pre-made pico de gallo you’re looking at just half an hour until you can treat yo’self with a delicious dish.
I LOVE pico regardless of whether it’s store bought or fresh, but fresh is always best when it comes to your vegetables. Pico is pretty easy to make, but here’s a quick and easy recipe for those that are a little unsure:
- 1/3 c. red or white onion
- 1 medium jalapeno
- 2 roma tomatoes
- 1/8 c. chopped cilantro
- salt and pepper to taste
- juice from 1 lime
Mix all ingredients together, and place in the fridge to chill while you make up the fish. Serves 2, so just multiply the recipe to make for 4+ and you’re good to go!
For the tacos:
- 8oz of white flakey fish (I used halibut)
- 2 tbps Cholula lime chili sauce
- 1 tbps oil (I use evoo)
- blackened seasoning
- shredded red cabbage
- 1/2 c sour cream
- juice of one lime
- tortillas of choice
Add oil to a medium/large size skillet over medium heat. While the oil is heating, cover each side of the fish with 1tbps of the chili sauce and the blackened seasoning. Add the fish to the pan, and cooking for 4 minutes on each side or until the fish flakes easily. While the fish is cooking, mix together the sour cream and the lime sauce. I like to add in a pinch of salt to mine to take the tangy-ness level down just a little, but you can adjust to your own preference.
Add the fish to the pan, and cooking for 4 minutes on each side or until the fish flakes easily.
Heat the tortillas, fill them up with your fish, cabbage mix, sour cream sauce and pico. Dinner is served! How easy was that??
Let me know if you make it, and what your thoughts were!
