To continue the fish theme – today I bring you fish tacos. My kids LOVE tacos and so do I. I make a variety of tacos – beef, tofu, chicken and fish. These are great with soft tortillas and a range of toppings – whatever you like but I usually have some red cabbage, corn, cherry tomatoes, corriander and lettuce. Some sour cream, avocado and sweet chilli usually hits the spot too.
Here’s how to make the fish – you experiment with the rest according to taste! Its another great use of the food processor!
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 cup corriander leaves
2-3 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 small red chilli (omit if your kids are spiceophobes)
1 tsp salt
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1/3 cup of olive oil
About 4 fillets firm white fish – barramundi or snapper is yum – cut into strips
WHAT TO DO
Blend everything except the fish in the food processor to a paste
Put fish in a bowl and mix the paste through to coat – marinade for about 15 mins (this is when I chop the vegies to accompany and put tortillas in oven to warm)
Heat a non stick pan on high heat – cook fish in batches for about 3 mins until just cooked.
Make up as you like and ENJOY!
This meal takes about 30 mins tops! Great for when you have ppl over for a casual family dinner too. x
