I LOVE Mexican cuisine and believe that tortillas, beans and avocado could sustain me for life. But when I cook for my Scottish father things tend to be rather bland (think roasted meat, boiled potatoes and mushy peas). My taste buds have rebelled, but how to merry my love for flavour and his stubborn insistence on plain food?
GG Fish Tacos are the answer as they combine fish with fresh avocado and mango salsa on top of warm corn tortillas. Healthy, not too spicy and full of flavour!
GG Fish Tacos
- White fish (cod, tilapia, halibut)
- 1/4 cup flour mixed with dash curry powder (depending how spicy you want it)
- Egg beaten with touch of milk
- Light oil
- Corn tortillas
- Red onion
- Salt and Pepper
- Greek style yogurt
- Curry powder
Prepare salsa by coarsely chopping all ingredients and combining in a bowl. Easy. Prepare yogurt dressing by combining in a bowl. Even easier. Wrap corn tortillas in cloth and microwave about 30 seconds. Alternatively use the frying pan on LOW and heat for a few minutes until warm but not crisp. Keep wrapped in towel while fish is prepared.
Heat a thick layer of oil in pan but do not overheat. Roll fish in flour/spice mixture. Dip fish in egg/milk mix and shake off excess liquid. Throw fish in pan and fry a few minutes. When cooked lay fish out on paper towel to absorb excess oil.
To combine tacos, layer two tortillas on a plate, top with fish, salsa and yogurt dressing, garnish with cilantro and serve with a slice of lime. Best enjoyed with cold light beer on a patio with friends.
