Weekly Ad Recipe – Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos - www.cobornsblog.com

Any chance I get to try Fresh Flight Seafood from Coborn’s I am all over this! I tried the Fresh Flight Cod and I know for a fact it was the BEST cod I have ever had in my life.  When I walked up to the Service Counter to place my order I new the fish was going to be fantastic because it glistened in the case.  It screamed freshness.  If you haven’t gotten a chance to try the great selection of Fresh Flight Seafood at Coborn’s you have just got to stop in and see for yourself.  I brought the cod home and made Fish Tacos for my family and the neighbors next door. We grilled on the back patio and the cod was the talk of the party.   Enjoy…..I did!

I’m writing my April blog on a day the weather reporters promise is going to get to 50 degrees and this time I am going to hold them to it, even though tomorrow’s prediction is a snow storm and maybe blizzard like conditions. My fear is our spring is going to be like last year and start in June. Yuck!

I thought this month I would talk about Lent because so many people struggle to come up with a meatless menu for dinner on Fridays.  My neighbor Donna came over a few weeks ago with a new recipe and a new sauce for me to try. It is great living across the street from a good friend who loves to cook.  We get together and share recipes and a few glasses of wine and it takes us away from the hum-drum of life, especially this time of year.

I love fish tacos and I think the first time I had them was at a seaside restaurant in Clearwater, Florida.  I will never forget sitting on the beach with a cool breeze, watching the waves come in and sampling the fish tacos along with a raspberry/lime margarita; it was fantastic.  I didn’t think I would ever find fish tacos that were as good. Well, I was wrong. After I tried Donna’s recipe I just had to make more. The jalapeno sauce that she drizzled over the tacos put this recipe over the edge.

The first step to making the fish is to dip them in flour, egg and water. The next step is to dip the fish in panko breadcrumbs. Panko crumbs are used in Japanese cooking for creating crisp, airy fried foods. Panko crumbs are made from wheat bread, but they are flaky and lighter than other breadcrumbs. They also come in a wide variety of flavors. The fish that I used for this recipe was the “Fresh Flight” cod that I talked about in last month’s blog. I stopped at Coborn’s meat department and purchased this because the fish was in the ocean yesterday. Now really, can you get it any fresher?

Then you follow the directions to make the toppings for the fish that go into the tortillas. You do not have to make the Jalapeno sauce for these fish tacos because you have lots of flavors that will be going into the avocado mixture but I’m telling you that you will be missing out if you don’t try it. It is phenomenal and adds the best flavor to the fish. I used lime in this recipe but if you prefer lemon that works great also.  The Jalapeno sauce in the recipe is spicy, but not too hot. Squeeze a little lime juice over the tacos for a zesty flavor. Don’t forget to serve some raspberry/lime margaritas along with the tacos.  Enjoy….I really did!
