Since Christmas I feel like I’ve been eating really heavy food. Sometimes healthy, but mostly not. I love hot cheesy casseroles. I have been craving something on the lighter side with a fresh taste. Cilantro is one of my favorite herbs with it’s great taste, so I wanted to incorporate that. I decided on some Alaska cod with a nice corn salsa.
Corn Salsa for Fish Tacos
I love Pacific cod and so do my kids. It’s moist, flaky, and you can really use it in all kinds of recipes. It’s quick and easy to cook and that’s perfect when you don’t have a lot of time. This meal took under 3o minutes and I still had time to run my kids to practice and help with homework. It’s actually one of the most popular whitefish in the US.
Ingredients Salsa Recipe for Fish Tacos
- White corn- You can use fresh corn for this, but it does take longer. Make sure to cook your corn before cutting off the cob.
- Red onion
- Lime juice
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Jalapeños (optional)
You can serve this with rice, black bean, corn tortillas or flour tortillas.
How to make Corn Salsa for Fish
Drain 2 cans of white corn and add to a large bowl.
Chop and add 1/3 cup red onion (about half of a onion). Add 1/3 cup chopped cilantro. Add salt, black pepper and lime juice.
Chop jalapeños and add what you prefer. (I usually keep these on the side and my husband and I add what we want to our dish.)
Stir until well combined and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
I was baking my cod while I was making the salsa. Mine came frozen from my local Harris Teeter and directions were on the back of the package. It was located in the freezer case next to the fish counter. I put it in frozen and baked for 20-25 minutes on 400F and added a little salt and pepper to taste. I served it with rice with a little cilantro mixed it (of course).
You can buy Alaska seafood fresh and frozen year round. It’s wild caught and Alaska has some of the world’s highest quality seafood. Other Alaska seafood includes, halibut, crab, sole, and pollock, so you have a lot to choose from. They had some of those varieties at my Harris Teeter too, so I had a lot to choose from. My husband loves that Alaska crab!!
