So Andrea and I are kind of just flying by the seat of our pants with this blog. (If you haven't noticed :) Either way, it's been a fun medium to share with eachother our recipes and ideas in our efforts to make a full conversion to a whole foods and no sugar (at least in our meals.. save it for the good stuff.) lifestyle. Anyway, remember last week when I had the idea to make friday our recipe day? Well that was AFTER we had just determined that it would be Andrea's week to post on friday. So she was a good sport and posted about MY idea, using MY theme. Well, now this week is MY day to post on friday, and it's HER theme. Why does it MATTER you ASK? (ok, sorry.. I'll quit yelling) It doesn't.. except that since I don't like sea food (a cardinal sin in the bay area.. I know), I don't even have 1 tried and true recipe to share. I have cooked Salmon a time or two in a failed attempt to overcome my dislike (abhoration), but I can't really recommend that which I don't like (abhore.. My family actually sit's around and watches me try to choke down sea food for sport.)
look. I know what you're thinking. Maybe I should try crab, or shrimp, or lobster, or white fish.. I have OK?! I've tried it all.. on multiple occasions. I just HATE that fishy taste. HATE IT. DON'T MAKE ME EAT IT.
leave me the heck alone.
So.. where was I? Oh, yes. I am going to share a recipe anyway. I did once eat a fish taco at a restaurant in San Diego and liked it, (Forget what I said before..) so although I haven't tried making my own, I just might.
We do make chicken tacos sometimes, and the tortilla makes all the difference, so if you don't have a tortilla factory near by like we do, (I'm tellin' ya, the California is the 8th wonder of the world when it comes to food. You should see our farmers markets.. YEAR ROUND. That will be a good post one day) You might consider making your own..
Ok, ok, we usually make our own tortillas. I usually don't get all the way out to the tortilla factory. We just follow the directions on the back of the Maseca bag. Go ahead.. click it. it's a link.
And then flatten it in the cast iron tortilla press I got for my birthday.
You could also use a whole wheat tortilla recipe. I like this one and there's even a video tutorial to go with it.
So moving on..
Here's Andrea's recipe.
I would trust hers before mine.
1/4 C. butter - melted (I cut it in half and only use 2 TB)
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper (one Pizza Hut packet will last a long time with this recipe)
1 lb. any white fish (I always use tilapia, and I do 5 or 6 fillets)
Place fillets in 9x11 oven safe dish. Mix everything else in a small bowl. Pour over fish. Bake @ 400 for 30 minutes, basting twice.
Ok, I've probably scared you with my bipolar-ness, but don't let that stop you from contributing your favorite fish recipes.
