What’s For Dinner?

fish tacos

Tonight?  Fish Tacos!  My sister shared a sauce recipe that she loves on her fish tacos.  She found it here, but I make mine a little different.  Here’s what I do-

First of all this makes a bit more sauce than we need.  So I cut the mayo amount in half but use the same amount of plain yogurt.  We don’t ALL like spicy food, so I don’t use all of the jalapeno or cayenne pepper (start with a bit and add it as you taste.  Stop adding them when you like it!)  I do like a bit more cumin and oregano so I sprinkle a bit more on than the 1/2 tsp.  As you can tell, I don’t do exact measurements when I mix up this sauce. 

For the fish, we tried some leftover baked tilapia one week and it was just okay.  Then I found this at our local Costco.  Big hit.  Huge hit.  Baked AND crispy.  I make a batch for dinner, the adults eat them as tacos and the kids eat them like chicken nuggets.

Add a package of corn tortillas, shredded cabbage, some pico de gallo and a couple of limes and you have a quick weeknight dinner!

 Hi Cathy!  Your hubby said you were wanting some new blog posts :)

I'll have to try that. My husband is always begging me to allow more fish to enter this house but I HATE seafood. This though actually looks pretty good.

Yay! You're back. We're trying to eat better over here and have just started into the world of fish. Which ones do you recommend for non-fish lovers? Maybe a taco is the way to go - hide it a little.

These tacos are a great way to hide it. You get the crunch of a chicken nugget, but mostly we just taste the salsa, the sauce and the lime juice squeezed on top.

We recently tried this recipe:


and everyone loved it. It was a bit rich for me, but the kids devoured it and never even asked what kind of meat was underneath the yummy sauce :)

Brielle -These cod fillets are NOT fishy at all. I can give you a few to try if you want - before you commit to an entire box of them :)
