Fish Tacos

We are enjoying Mexico.  I thought why not enjoy one of my favorite Mexican meals in our room.  I love fish tacos.  I know you can make grilled or fried fish tacos but my favorite is fried.  And when you are doing  the cooking you get to make it the way you want it.

 

Fish Tacos

2 pounds of mild white fish cut in 1” by 3” strips
1/2 cup of flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
5 to 6 Tablespoons of coconut oil
Package of flour tortillas
Sliced tomatoes
Sliced purple onions
Grated purple cabbage

Take the flour and put it in a gallon ziplock bag. Add the salt and pepper and shake.

Place the coconut oil in a large nonstick skillet. Put the skillet on the burner and heat it on high. As the coconut oil is heating shake the cut fish in the flour until they are lightly coated on all sides.

Test to see if the oil is hot enough for frying the fish. Sprinkle a little water in the skillet. If it sizzles it is ready for the fish. Place the fish in the skillet and cook on one side until it is brown. This could take 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook on the other side.  Drain on paper towels.

Wrap the fish in the tortilla and garnish with tomatoes, onions and cabbage. Top with the delicious Mexican sauce (recipe below) and you will be enjoying the flavors of Mexico right in your Ohio home!

Sauce for Fish Tacos

1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Juice from 2 small limes
2 Tablespoons Fajita Mixture (recipe follows)
8 teaspoons Chili Powder
6 teaspoons Ground Cumin
4 teaspoons granulated garlic
2 teaspoons dried Oregano

Mix all ingredients together and let refrigerate for several hours.

Until next time…from our Butcher Block to your Table! Adios Amigos!

Carrot Cake

The Butcher and I got to make a trip to Niagra Falls that coincided with my birthday.  I Mauri-1searched high and low for the “perfect” carrot cake.  I couldn’t even find a decent carrot cake. I decided when we got back home to make my own carrot cake.  The recipe I used couldn’t have been better.  I got it from my friend, Karen Miller, the Hunky Dory Pastries Favorite Recipe Cookbook.  I did make a couple of alterations.  It was delicious.

Eggplant Parmesan

I went to a Farmers Stand yesterday–$25.00 later I had so much fresh produce I had no where to store it.  We had fabulous green beans and corn on the cob last night.  Tonight we are having Eggplant Parmesan.  I love this dish.  This recipe is so simple.  I have adapted this to make it Paleo friendly and gluten free.  Enjoy!Mauri-1[amd-zlrecipe-recipe:22]

Enjoy!  This is an adaptation from Civilized Caveman Mauri-1 Cooking.    [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:17]
