Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos

1-2 pounds mahi mahi (Tilapia works great too)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cabbage, sliced thin
Salsa or pico de gallo
white sauce (recipe to follow)
Corn tortillas

Line a small baking sheet with foil.  Place the fish down on the sheet and sprinkle with the cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and half a lime.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until fish is flaky.  While the fish is baking, make the white sauce.

White Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup milk
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon garlic salt

Whisk all ingredients together. Set aside.

Cook corn tortillas on a skillet lightly coated in oil (I use my griddle and cook 4 at a time).  Once the fish is baked, shred the fish with two forks.  Assemble tacos.  Tortilla, fish, cabbage, white sauce, salsa and fresh lime.  


{cooks note}

There are a lot of fish taco recipes out there, but I like this one because it is light (the fish is not fried) and very easy to make.  This is just one version I make.  My kids don't eat the tacos assembled, it's too hard for them, so they have the fish and tortillas.  This meal frequents our table a lot in the spring and summer.

My mahi mahi came individually packaged.  Cheapest place to purchase it is Costco.  I used four.
This is my lime press.  I use it all the time.
Fish seasonings. 
White sauce.

Shredded fish.
Each bite makes me feel like I am on vacation in Cabo...kind of.
