Sunday Sustenance: Fish Tacos and a Day for the Mamas

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas! I have a truly amazing one myself and I can’t imagine what my life would be like without our daily chats. I love you, Mom! Hope you enjoy your day!

On Cinco de Mayo I made these fish tacos and they were pretty delish. A perfect spring/summer food. The secret ingredient is definitely the sour cream, so don’t leave that out!

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons lime zest
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such as
Old Bay™
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, or to taste
1 pound tilapia fillets, cut into chunks
Dressing
1 (8 ounce) container light sour cream
1/2 cup adobo sauce from chipotle
peppers
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons lime zest
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such

salt and pepper to taste
Toppings
1 (10 ounce) package tortillas
3 ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 small head cabbage, cored and
shredded
2 limes, cut in wedges
Directions:
1. To make the marinade, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, lime zest, honey, garlic, cumin, chili powder, seafood seasoning, black pepper, and hot sauce in a bowl until blended. Place the tilapia in a shallow dish, and pour the marinade over the fish. Cover, and refrigerate 6 to 8 hours.
2. To make the dressing, combine the sour cream and adobo sauce in a bowl. Stir in the lime juice, lime zest, cumin, chili powder, seafood seasoning. Add salt, and pepper in desired amounts. Cover, and refrigerate until needed.
3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate. Set grate 4 inches from the heat.
4. Remove fish from marinade, drain off any excess and discard marinade. Grill fish pieces until easily flaked with a fork, turning once, about 9 minutes.
5. Assemble tacos by placing fish pieces in the center of tortillas with desired

*A few notes: I baked the fish this time, although I usually grill it. Not quite the same, but still pretty tasty. Also, instead of Old Bay, I used Cajun seasoning, just because that’s what I had. And I used corn tortillas, claro que si;)

Tasty goodness.

Tasty goodness.

I hope you all take time to appreciate the wonderful mothers out there. I know I will<3
