Fish Taco’s with Tilapia & Pollock

Written By: Chris - Jul• 16•12

We were first inspired to try making our own fish tacos after Bill and I both enjoyed them while eating out at a couple different places here in Minnesota as well as while traveling in California.  This is a very light, bright and delicious dish.  We’ve had them prepared also with fresh caught lake fish, but if you haven’t got any of that on hand – Tilapia and Pollock are nice, mild fish varieties that you can pick up at the grocery store or at your local Costco.  Lightly breading and pan frying the fish adds a nice, thin crispy texture to the tacos!  The topping sauce is what brings this dish together!  It has a nice tang, a hint of heat and it blends perfectly with the creamy richness of the avocado.  We love the flavor of the fresh Cilantro and crunch of the cabbage!

Ingredients:

Topping sauce:
1/4 Cup light Sour Cream
1/4 Cup plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 Cup light Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons skim Milk
Juice of One Lime
3 Tablespoons Capers
2 Tablespoon jarred Jalapeno’s
1 Tablespoon Dill
1 teaspoon Cayenne
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
1 Teaspoon Oregano
1/3 Cup Chopped roasted Onions (left over)
2 large fresh raw Green onion
Salt & Pepper

Chop capers, jalapenos, onions and dill.  Mix with all other ingredients above and set aside to chill in the refrigerator while you prepare the fish

Fresh Cilantro
Chopped Cabbage
Avocado

Soft shelled tortillas
Fillets of Tilapia & Pollock

1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
Egg Beaters
Salt & Pepper
Corn Starch
Flour

Prepare dredging area by mixing flour & corn starch with salt & Pepper.  Pour some egg beaters in another dish.  Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan and heat over medium high heat.  Pan fry fish until golden brown on each side and allow to drain any access fat off on paper towels.

Assemble tacos by placing some of each type of fish inside of the tortilla shells.  Top with chopped cabbage and some of the topping sauce.  Add some fresh Cilantro and slices of avocados.

Enjoy!

Cheers!
