Fish Tacos

Posted on March 1, 2013. Filed under: Food Made Simple | Tags: , , , |

Today I’m making these again.  I just had them last night for dinner and my husband and I loved them so much we are just repeating this meal again!  They are so quick, tasty and really light.

I used a big chunk of Alaskan cod, defrosted in some cool water in a stainless steel pan for about 4 hours (I love to pick these stainless steel restaurant prep pans up at resale shops.  They are the best!)  All amounts are flexible, use what you have!

Olive Oil

Onions/Peppers sliced long and thin

Spices: Garlic powder, Salt, Mexican Oregano, Hot or Mild Chili Powder, Cumin (start with 1/2 teaspoon of each and see what you think)

Cod – cut into 1-2 inch chunks (A kitchen scissors works great for this)

Fresh Limes (You will hate yourself if you substitute for these – don’t make this until you have some)

Cilantro (If you have it, chop up and throw on top at the end)

Cabbage – Red or Green sliced very thinly

Tortillas (I used sprouted corn which are so good and corny, but you can use whatever you like)

A few teaspoons of olive oil in a pan (my favorites are the enamel-coated cast iron) with the onions and peppers.  Cook on medium for a few minutes while all that softens a bit.  Add Spices and Cod and stir often.  Meanwhile pop some tortillas into the toaster oven or in a cast-iron pan on medium to warm and soften.   The cod will fall apart as it cooks.  Put some cabbage in a tortilla, then some of the cod and veggies, squeeze a half of a lime over a plateful and dig in!

I am thinking I will need to do a post about my favorite tools like the stainless steel prep pans, kitchen scissors, and enamel-coated cast iron pans I love.  I have lots of tools I love to use.  It makes cooking so much more enjoyable!
