Happy Taco Tuesday #StackedConfidentialConfidantes! What are your plans for dinner tonight?! I recently made some fish tacos & wanted to share that process with you! Normally I don’t follow recipes or measure seasonings but I am going to try & be better about that with my food blog entries! this dish is something that i came up with after trying fish tacos at a few different restaurants!
The BEST Fish tacos featuring fried Red Snapper Prep time 30 minutes, cooking time 15 minutes 2-3 lb Red Snapper filet (usually this is half of a fish) 2 cups shredded purple cabbage 1 cup shredded carrots 8-16 oz pre made pico de gallo (diced tomatoes, diced onion, cilantro) 8 oz sour cream Soft tortillas 8-12 oz olive oil Juice from 1 lime 3 sprigs of chopped cilantro to garnish 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 teaspoon Lawrys Garlic Salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 1/2 cups House of Autry seafood breader
Preheat 8-10 oz Olive oil in 8 or 10 inch frying pan. Rinse Red Snapper in cold water, make sure to remove any scales that the butcher may have left on, then pat dry with paper towel. Take kitchen scissors & cut Red Snapper into chunks. Place the cut up fish in a bowl & add seasonings. Toss & let marinate while the oil is heating up. Add remaining olive oil & all the balsamic vinegar to another preheated pan, add shredded purple cabbage & carrots. Stir to coat. Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes. You still want it to be crunchy. Add seafood breader to the bowl of seasoned fish & toss to coat. Place fish in heated olive oil & cook 3-5 minutes on each side. Drain. Heat up your tortillas according to manufacturers directions For every 8 oz of sour cream add 1/2 the juice of a lime. (I made double this amount because we love this topping!! If you aren’t a sour cream eater, use reserved lime juice to top your assembled tacos! Time to put flavors together & build the best fish taco ever! Place two to three fried red snapper chunks on your heated tortilla. Next, layer your purple cabbage & carrot mixture. Follow with a layer of your pre made pico de gallo. Finish with your sour cream mixture & garnish with extra cilantro! enjoy! blessings! *this is an iphone picture*
