Cooking fish is easier than you think. Growing up in South Florida, our family ate fish at least once a week and I still try to eat it that often for the great health benefits.
Getting my husband to eat a fish meal is difficult as he says it doesn’t fill him up enough- these fish tacos, however, are one of his favorite meals.
This fish taco recipe is best prepared with a thick fish such as red snapper or mahi mahi.
- 1 - 1.5 pounds of thick fish (such as red snapper or mahi mahi)
- ½ cup white wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon butter
- juice of 1 lime
- Toppings: lettuce, tomato, salsa
- If the fish is frozen, defrost in water.
- Rinse the fish in water and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Cut fish filets into ½ inch chunks and pat dry again with a paper towel.
- Combine the flour, salt and pepper on a dinner plate.
- Toss the chunks of fish in the flour combination.
- Melt the butter in a skillet and add the flour coated fish.
- Add the lime juice over the fish.
- Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently, until fish is opaque in the middle.
- Add to warm tortillas with your favorite taco toppings.
