Fish Tacos


It's awesome to have so much Halibut on hand when you want to make something like this. Chris, Timmy's brother, goes to Alaska once a year in the fall with his parents and some of their friends to catch Halibut and Salmon. He's going again in August this year so I need to use up the rest of last years supply!

 

Fish Tacos

1/2 lb halibut, skinned, deboned and cut into small pieces 
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
salt and pepper to taste




  • Prepare the fish by skinning and boning if needed. 
  • In a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients listed above. Add the fish to the marinade and let sit for up to 30 minutes. 
  • When ready to cook the fish, heat a pan on medium-high heat. Cook for about 5-7 minutes. Don't worry if the fish is falling apart, it's a flaky fish so it's normal.

Condiments:

pico de gallo
chili mayo {recipe below}
cheese, shredded
cabbage, shredded

Chili Mayo

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 1/2 tablespoons hot sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder


  • Combine all of the ingredients above and refrigerate until ready to use.

To assemble the tacos, start off with a flour tortilla and add a couple spoonfuls of the halibut. After that the pico de gallo, gaucamole, chili mayo, cheese and the cabbage.

I usually serve the fish tacos with a side of black beans and mexican rice topped with a little cheese.



Enjoy!
