I've been meaning to post some recipes for a while now. I"ll post one of our favorite recipes once a week. Feel free to share any of your faves with me!

Fish Tacos, serves 4.
We had this originally with our friends Jeff & Jess. Jess is from Australia and this recipe comes from the Australian chef, Bill Granger.

1 cup of roughly chopped cilantro, leaves & stems (one of my FAVE ingredients)
2 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of cumin
1 small red chili, seeded & chopped
1 tsp of sea salt
fresh ground pepper
zest of 1 lime
1/3 cup of olive oil
1 lb. of firm white fish, cut in strips (we usually use cod)

Place all ingredients except the fish in a blender or a food processor and blend until it forms a paste. Place the fish in a bowl and stir in paste, marinate for 15 mins. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a high heat until hot, add the fish strips in a single layer and cook for 2 minutes. Turn and cook on the other side for 1 minute, or until the fish is fully cooked. Place on a serving platter and garnish with lime wedges.

I usually serve this with some shredded cabbage & lime mayo. The recipes for the lime mayo is as follows:
1 cup mayonnaise (this makes A LOT, you could cut it in half even for 4 ppl)
finely grated zest of 1 lime
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp sea salt
Then just mix it all up and put on top of the tacos.

We usually use the small soft corn tortillas and just warm them up in the oven before putting the fish it. Easy peasy.
