Impromptu Fish Tacos!
I love experimenting on my children! They are willing subjects, well two of them are, and they love to eat! Alex loves fish and seafood and he has been bugging me to make fish tacos. So while daddy was at work, and I had a bag of tilapia in the freezer the planets collided and I made them. They were scrumptious!
I defrosted the tilapia and sprinkled a little bit of Old Bay Seasoning on the fillets. I lit the grill. (Yay! I can do that by myself!) I wiped a little olive oil on the grate to prevent sticking. Tilapia is a really delicate fish, and I didn’t want lose most of it to the grill. While the tilapia was grilling, I threw on some corn tortillas. I originally meant to just soften them, but I left them on too long and they became crispy. Isabelle had a fish tostada. I made a quick slaw to top the tacos with leftover coleslaw mix and a splash of olive oil, red wine vinegar and a sweet chili sauce. We topped the tacos with the slaw, and some store bought pico de gallo, (I hear a collective gasp from all of you gourmet foodies) and gobbled them down!
The Impromptu Fish Tacos were a perfect lunch on a hot summer’s day. The combination of spicy and sweet from the coleslaw worked really well with the mildness of the fish. The tacos are also a healthy option! I think I might make them for lunch again tomorrow!
