I made fish tacos the other night. It made me laugh a lot because I am incredibly immature. Like, beyond immature. Sorry, don’t think I’m gross, I just had to put that out there.
But joking aside, they were good! I knew I just wanted the fish with a separate sauce, rather than fish drowning in a creamy sauce. I did some googling and came up with baja sauce recipe. I’m not 100% sure why I chose to make it, since I tend to be a little scared of mayonnaise, but I did, and went light on the mayo. It was only meh, I wouldn’t make it again. Any good sauce ideas for fish tacos?
For the fish, I took a little help from Costco.
We rarely ever cook fish because I have this thing where I am totally grossed out by leftover fish. I make it at home once in awhile. I found these, which are individually wrapped tilapia fillets, so I think I will be way more inclined to make fish, since they are portioned out and leftovers won’t be a problem!
I put them in a small casserole dish that was sprayed with Pam and sprinkled with a little salt and pepper. Then I sprinkled them really liberally with some taco seasoning.
They cooked away in a 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes.
I shredded them with a fork, then it was taco time! I bought some cole slaw mix, and chopped up tomatoes and avocadoes. With the sauce these were yummy, but I would definitely like a different sauce! We made them on corn tortillas, which fell apart a little, but were so good!
Do you make fish a lot at home? Any tips to make the leftovers more palatable?
Fish is so good for you, but I just can’t bring myself to eat it the next day. So glad I found single servings!
