Quick and Easy Fish tacos
Today I could not think what to make for lunch. I actually wanted something quick and refreshing so since I had some fish sitting around and some greens I figured I put them together and make some fish tacos.
By the way I think this is one of the first savory dishes I made in a long time as all my previous posts are sweets…oh well!! You know my sweet tooth right?
The best part about this tacos was definitely the sauce. I love garlic, and tons of it, as well as cilantro. The sauce is what made the tacos great given the garlic, cilantro and lime flavors. I even use the sauce to smear it onto bread when making sandwiches it is that good :-)
Anyhow, these tacos where rather simple. I did not have tomatoes or salsa or any other veggies to add to them but you can get really creative with these.
I am for sure going to make these again. I used wild Mahi Mahi because it is one of my favorite fish but you can add any other type of your choice. Just make sure you don’t chose one that would come apart while grilling it.
I grilled the wild Mahi Mahi a couple of minutes on each side. Just make sure you oil the pan and the fish slightly so that it doesn’t stick to the pan.
I didn’t get to creative with these but you can also add some chopped onions, tomatoes or even peppers. The sauce is what made these fish tacos the best tacos ever!
Yield: 6 tacos
6 Large whole wheat flour tortillas, warm
1 lb wild Mahi Mahi, or any other fish of your choice
4 oz organic pea shoots, you can also use cabbage or lettuce
3 scallions, chopped
Fresh cilantro, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 lime, juice and zest
3 tablespoons mayo
3 tablespoons low fat Greek yogurt
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Sauce recipe adapted from my recipes
Lightly grease a grill and the fish. Turn on the heat to high and warm the grill pan before placing the fish. Once the grill pan is hot add the fish and grill on each side about 2-3 minutes.
While the fish is being grilled, in a bowl add the sauce ingredients and mix through. Set aside.
To assemble the tacos, place each tortilla on a plate follow by the pea shoots, the fish and the sauce. At this stage you may want to add some chopped tomatoes, onions etc.
Warm tortillas taste better to me so if you like you can warm them up in the microwave, two at a time, for 30-45 seconds.
