Recipe Fridays: Fish Tacos
This recipe is so easy, and is truly delicious and a real crowd-pleaser! Tacos are always a fun thing to have at a dinner party with friends, so consider this recipe for your next get-together.
Ingredients (for 4 servings):
1 cup chopped red onion
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
4 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1 cup chopped yellow bell peppers
3 tbs chopped fresh cilantro
2 tbs fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 flour tortillas (I like using the multigrain kind)
salt, pepper, other spices to taste (I like cumin, basil, and coriander)
fresh salsa (store-bought, or you can make your own)
1 pound red snapper fillets, skinned (or trout or any other light white fish -- I usually just get whatever's cheapest at the market! The key is that the fish absorbs the delicious other flavors in the dish, so it doesn't need to be very high quality)
Place the tortillas in the oven to warm (I usually turn it to about 350 degrees).
Spread olive oil on a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions, tomatoes, garlic, bell peppers, cinnamon, salt, pepper, cumin, and any other spices. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the cilantro. Arrange fish over the vegetable mixture in the pan, cover and cook for about 3 minutes. Turn the fish over, and cook for about 2 minutes more. Break the fish into chunks, stir in the lemon juice, and cook for 2 more minutes.
Fill each tortilla with the fish mixture and the fresh salsa, and enjoy!
