Fish taco

lol Seriously this demolished my taco craving!!!! Wow and those cheese shells are to die for! 

What you need 

  • Cheese slices (not thin)  I bought chipotle cheddar 
  • 7oz cod (should be 5oz after cooking)
  • 1 cup Shredded cabbage 
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes or 1 can Petite diced
  • 1 slice of a red onion when chopped it should come to 1TBSP or less is ok 
  • 1 tbsp of  approved dressing (I used the poblano and avocado dressing)
  • 1 jalapeño (optional)
  • Cumin
  • Garlic powder or minced garlic
  • 1oz avocado 
  • 1 lime

How to make it 

  1. Let’s mix up the toppings so they can chill in the icebox while you cook
  2. Mix your tomatoes, 1/2 your chopped onion, jalapeño(however much you like) and 1 small wedge of lime juice…. a pinch of cumin and garlic powder or 1/2 tsp minced garlic. Cover and chill
  3. Mix your caggabe and salad dressing together. Cover and chill 
  4. Now let’s move on to the fish! Place your fish on a heated stove top that has been sprayed with Pam 
  5. Place the other half of your chopped onion, some more garlic, a dash of cumin, and 1 more wedge of lime juice and lime zest from that same wedge. Cook until it’s nice and flakey 🙂 
  6. Once that is done set aside or you can do this while you cook your fish 
  7. On parchment paper or sprayed foil place 4 of your cheese and bake at 400° for about 10 min. Check at 6,8,10min. You don’t want them to get crispy while in the oven or you will have to start over. 
  8. Once they are good and melted. They should be golden, bubbley and thin looking. 
  9. Let them cool just a bit so that you can easily peel them away with a spatula. 
  10. Set them on a roller pin or the side of a thick baking dish to get that taco shape 
  11. Once those are cooled off they should be hard but not easily broken 
  12. Fill your tacos with fish, 1/2 your cabbage mixer, 1/4 of the tomatoes mixer and then 1 slice of avocado 
  13. Now mix the other half of your cabbage with 1/4 of the tomato mixture and bam you got a little cabbage salad to go with the tacos! 

My shells where crispy but not crunchy and dry. They weren’t chewy either absolutely perfect! 

This is 1 complete lean and green, 2 healthy fats, 2ish condiments (I counted the onion and the lime as condiments…. I know you shroud count slices but I don’t 😬 don’t tell)
