Description

Simple but tasty Fish Tacos.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ pound Tilapia Fillets (or Other Mild Fish; If Buying Tilapia Try To Find It U.S. Farmed)
  • Salt And Pepper For Seasoning Fillets
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ cups Canola Oil
  • 8 whole Corn Tortillas
  • 1 cup Jicama, Julienned
  • 1 cup Salsa
  • Other Preferred Taco Toppings

Preparation

Pat dry fish fillets (approximately 1 1/2 lbs) with paper towels. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Place fillets in a large zip-top bag with the flour. Shake until fillets are coated on all sides.

Pour the canola oil in large skillet (I used cast iron) and heat over medium/medium high. Watch closely and when the slightest hint of smoke is seen coming off the oil, turn the heat down a bit. Take fillets out of the bag and give them a good shake to remove excess flour (you just want a light dusting). Gently place fillets in the pan. After a few seconds, shake the pan to keep them from sticking. Cook 2–3 minutes, gently flip and shake the pan again to loosen fillets. Cook 2–3 more minutes, remove fillets from pan and set aside.

In the same pan over low heat, warm tortillas for a minute on each side, or follow package instructions for warming.

Assemble tacos as desired, topping with jicama, salsa, and other preferred toppings.

I can’t get my kids to eat fish, but they do love tacos . . . I’ve got to try these. They sound so yummy, they’ll never know it’s fish! Right?

very, very good! we did the jicama, but not the cilantro pesto. had a little trouble with my fillets sticking, but it worked out. my littlest critic had two whole tacos–that’s high praise!
