Fabulous Fish Tacos

With Tequila-Lime Sauce and Pickled Slaw.


Every once in a while I make a recipe and I just don’t know where to start with the post.  There is just too much goodness going on here.  I guess I’ll go with the preparation order that Candice Kumai used in her book, Pretty Delicious.  That’s not too crazy, I hope.

Just look at that glorious slaw.


So far this year I’ve pickled onions, peaches, and now cabbage with radishes.  I am here to tell you that I am definitely a fan of pickling; it couldn’t be easier.  Sugar and apple cider vinegar and time is all you need.  You know what I’m not a fan of?  Radishes.  Well, unless they’re pickled, as I have just discovered.


There’s a lot of cilantro in there, and lime juice too.  Oddly, it wasn’t that flavorful, but it had a lot of competition with the slaw.


All I have to say is Tequila.

Actually, I should mention that the sauce was a little thin for my liking.  It’s Greek yogurt with lime juice in it and the tequila.  I think next time I’m going to use sour cream and just pour the tequila right on the taco.


A much better looking version of the fish.


I cannot get enough of this slaw.  I have some left and I want to put it on everything.


Avocados are optional.  Don’t you just love how that always means they’re not included in the calorie count?  I’m almost afraid to admit that I think I’m developing an allergy to avocados anyway.


In this case the tacos already come in at 470; so I can live without the creamy goodness of the avocados for now.

Eat Well and Savor.


Shrimp Cocktail Tacos

Posted on

No offense to Hungry Girl, but I’m not sure you can call this cocktail without cocktail sauce.


But here’s a big hooray for already cooked shrimp.  In other words, already cleaned and deveined!  Just toss it with some black bean and corn salsa and throw it in the taco shell with some lettuce and you’re done.  HG said it was okay to use a little fat-free sour cream.  Maybe it’s the time of year, but I think a little extra corn would have worked well too.


Just in case I haven’t made it clear, I’m a wimp when it come to spicy.  This medium salsa from Paul Newman was too much for me, so you should be proud that I gave it a shot.
