Blackened Fish Tacos

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that my family loves anything on a tortilla.  We love Mexican food because it’s usually quick to make and so flavorful.  I love that my kids are able to assemble their meal without my help. Taco Tuesdays was made for my family!  My mother-in-law was here visiting and we did some experimenting and came up with a great fish taco recipe because we had some extra cod from another meal and needed to use it up.  It tuned out fantastic.

Blackened Fish Tacos

There are 3 component to the tacos; the sauce, cabbage salad, and then the fish.

1. Sauce

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice

I put all the ingredients in my mini food processor and blended until smooth.  I just stuck this in the refrigerator until it was time to eat.

2.  Cabbage

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix until the cabbage is coated in the lime juice.  Keep in refrigerator until ready to use

3.  Fish and seasoning

  • 1 lb cod (You can use tilapia too)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoon oil for frying in skillet- I use olive oil.

Blackened Fish Tacos

I buy cod that is already in smaller pieces.  If you buy larger filets, you’ll want to cut them up into smaller pieces.  Turn the stove on medium-high and begin to heat up 1-2 tablespoons of oil.  (I used olive oil.)  Coat the fish with the spice mixture.  I do this by putting the fish in a baggie and pouring the spices in.  Now you’re able to coat the fish easily without getting your hands dirty.  Cook in the frying pan until done.  It should take that long since they are on the smaller side already, just a few minutes.

Blackened Fish Tacos

I grabbed some Hass Avocados from Mexico and Old El Paso Tortilla Bowls from Publix.  I just chopped up the avocados (or you can make your favorite guacamole recipe) and grab your tortillas or tortilla bowls and start loading them up.

Blackened Fish Tacos

Old El Paso has some great inspiration so you can start your own Taco Tuesdays, like this  great steak fajita bowls.  There’s also taco pizza rolls and a creamy chicken and chile enchilada.  I know you’re probably making your grocery list now!  That’s good because they also have a great coupon for you, save $1.00 when you buy 3 Old El Paso products.  Time to stock up!

I’m so exited about this that I’m giving away $10 in PayPal cash!  Enter below.  The contest ends on August 19, 2015.
