Fish Tacos

Perfect Summer Dinner - Fish Tacos

A lot of people think "yuck" when they hear fish tacos and once upon a time, I was one of them. When we first moved to CO, we were out one day driving around and saw all these Dell Taco restaurants. We decided to give it a try and upon seeing this huge advertisement for their new fish tacos, we all agreed it sounded pretty gross. We ordered our food to go and discovered they had accidentally put a fish taco in our bag. We tried...we loved! I have been hooked ever since.

 Start by preparing the pico de gallo. You should know, I rarely measure stuff so writing recipes is really hard for me!

  • 3 roma tomatoes, seeds out
  • about half an onion
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt
  • lime juice

Dill mayo...you can use plain mayo, but I put dill on all my fish. I'm actually a Miracle Whip girl but I will eat mayo on only 2 things and this is one of them.

  • couple scoops of mayo(we use canola mayo)
  • sprinkle of dry or fresh dill weed
  • squirt of lime juice
Now shred up some green cabbage and slice some avocado if you are so inclined.


The fish...in most restaurants they serve fried fish in fish tacos, but we are healthy, so we pan fry in some olive oil. Much better for you and easier than frying anyways!
  • Tilapia fillets(or whatever fish you prefer)
  • Mrs Dash Southwest Chipolte Seasoning
Now, just heat up some corn tortillas on a hot griddle, pile on all these yummy ingredients and chow down!
