Fish Taco

I had some Basa fish in the freezer that I had no idea what to do with, I really didn’t feel like eating it as is…I wanted to “spice” things up a bit. I decided I would try fish taco for the first time ever…and boy was it good!

After looking around online and finding out what the basics are for a good fish taco, I gathered up my ingredients and got to work.

To marinate the fish I used:
1/4 cup of oil (I didn’t have any olive oil on hand so I had to use vegetable oil)
2 tbsp distilled white vinegar
2 tbsp lime juice (you could also use lemon juice)
1 1/2 honey
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp fish seasoning
1 tsp sea salt
1 hole jalapeno pepper

I put the fish in a large freezer bag in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.

I broiled the fish on low for 14 mins, at least until it’s flaky. At about the 9 minute mark I took out the fish and drained off the water that had come out of the fish during the cooking process.

Contents for the dressing and toppings

For the dressing I mixed together:
Sour Cream
Juice from 1 lime
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 chili pepper thinly minced
Dash of sea salt

Toppings:
I used cabbage (I bought the coleslaw mix from the grocery store)
1 tomato
Green onion (optional)
I also used a little bit of cilantro…big mistake, I’m NOT a fan of cilantro and it tasted really yuck on my taco.

I used both the soft and hard taco shells, my son didn’t want the soft shells.
