Fish Tacos!

Fish tacos and roasted corn

Thursday night we had fish tacos for dinner with some of the Hake we had frozen on Tuesday.  This is perhaps one of our favorite ways to eat fish.  I will warn, the tacos are by no means authentic fish tacos.  They are Laura Theresa bastardized fish tacos, but I promise they are still good. The fish is baked and not fried in this recipe, but we have also fried and even beer batter fried the fish- all with good results.  We prefer the baking for convenience and the lower fat.

Our favorite way to eat them is with cilantro, radishes, and cabbage, but we didn’t have radishes or cabbage, so we made due with hakurai turnips (they have a mild radishy flavor) and lettuce. We also usually use cod, and I have to admit that Hake was very mild and was a little overpowered by the rest of the fish taco filling. 

Fish Tacos Recipe:

1 pound of fish (cod or other flavorful fish) cut into smallish (bitesize) pieces

whole wheat flour or panko (for coating the fish)

2 eggs (beaten)


Taco fixins:

corn tortillas

shredded cabbage (or in this case lettuce)

chopped cilantro

chopped radish or (hakurai turnip in this case)

Special Sauce:

1 cup of yogurt

1/3 cup mayonnaise

1/2 tsp cumin

2 tbsp lime juice

1/4 tsp salt


1.  Coat the fish pieces with flour or panko (Add some salt to the flour or panko).

2.  Dip the fish in the beaten eggs

3.  Coat it again with flour (this repetition is just to get the fish crunchier, since we won’t be frying them)

4.  Put the fish on a baking pan.

5.  Put the oven on to broil low and put the fish in until done (poke with a fork- about 10 minutes)

6.  Wash, chop and assemble the cabbage, lettuce, cilantro, radish.

7.  Warm the tortillas by putting them (all together) in tin foil and putting in the oven for ~5 minutes.

8.  Mix all the sauce ingredients together.

9.  Once the fish is done, assemble everything on the table, so you can make your tacos at the table.

For the roasted corn: We just took frozen corn, half thawed it.  Put it into an oiled baking dish.  Put it in the oven at 400F for ~20-30 minutes.  Added salt and pepper, and served alongside the tacos.

Assemble and enjoy.  Don’t make too big a mess. But if you do, enjoy it!
