Fish Taco Tuesday

There’s just something about tacos that hits the spot!

Doesn’t”Taco Tuesday” just roll off your tongue. It’s one of my favorite days of the week, and this week we wanted to Jazz it up a little bit. Instead of having normal tacos, we decided to have fish tacos. I love giving the kids a chance to express themselves in the kitchen. So I try to have kids cook night a couple times a month. My kids look forward to it, especially my 10 year old son who is a chef in the making.

You’ll be surprised how easy these fish tacos come together.

It’s just a matter of making a simple dry rub for your fish. I like to spice up my dry rubs with cayenne, paprika, garlic, onion powder, and a little parsley​ and herbs. That’s one thing that’s so fun about Taco Tuesday, you can Jazz these fish tacos up any way you like using your favorite seasonings.

Once you got your dry rub figured out, you’ll just want to generously coat your fish with butter​, and your prepared dry rub. I like to drizzle a little olive oil over my fish before I put it in the oven. We often use tilapia, but feel free to use your fav fish. Just make sure that you’ve amply coated your fish with butter before adding the dry rub. Once that’s all done it’ll bake in the oven for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees (depending on the type of fish you use).

Now it’s time for my favorite part the Mango Salsa.

I probably should call this something different, but mango salsa has that exotic, tropical feel.  For mango salsa, will be using fresh mango, lime, cucumber, cilantro, tomatillos, green onions, and tomatoes. This recipe comes together so easily. Once you chopped up all the ingredients, combined them in a bowl. Add a little bit of salt, and fresh lime you’re on your way. The mango and the lime, have such a refreshing taste. This also helps to brighten the fish tacos and adds a sweet tangy crunch to the savory fish.

We like to top off our fish tacos with a Lime Crema. We make this by adding a little bit of salt to sour cream and freshly squeezed lime juice. We also add the zest of 1 two one and a half lines depending on the amount of sour cream using. Mix all of that together and you’ve got something delicious to top your fish tacos.

This fish tacos help jazz up Taco Tuesday. I hope you’ll give him a try. Enjoy!
