Baja Fish Tacos

I'm not a huge seafood fan...I actually don't like it at all, but I like to try new ways to make it hoping I will like it.  I like fish and chips...I like shrimp and I don't mind crab in some things...like stuffed mushrooms and creamy fatty cheese dips....but that's where it stops.


I've tried a few recipes where I liked the fish and this one was one of them.  It's really easy and super fast...my kind of weeknight meal!  This is a version from beantownbaker.com




combine taco seasoning (make it at home...just omit flour and cornstarch), lime juice and orange juice.



add fish



toss to coat and let sit while heating oil in skillet



add to hot oil



meanwhile, cut up an avocado



and add to sour cream



stir until chunky...add salt and pepper to taste (we're really classy and fancy around here, so I served it right in the sour cream container...it's how I roll...just keeping it real)



by then the fish should be done



add coleslaw, avocado mixture and fish to warmed up tortilla and enjoy!!

  1. These look really good, Lisa. What kind of fish did you use? I am a total novice still when it comes to cooking meat, after many years as a vegetarian. I might cook this up for my mom and dad this week - my dad is a total red meat addict and I think he needs to expand his repertoire of meals!

  2. Hey Krista! I used tilapia...but you could use cod or haddock or any white fish. The store had tilapia on sale so that's what I went with. Let me know how it turns out for you!!
