  • Pinch cayenne

Tortilla Directions:
  1. Use one or the other method to cook your corn tortillas - you can place them directly over a flame and allow to cook 1-2 minutes on each side, or add tortillas to a drip or two of olive oilover medium heat and brown each side.
For the Fish
  1. Mix the spices together into a small bowl. Hand sprinkle the spices over both sides of the fisth. Spread a small amount of olive oil in a pre-heated non-stick skillet and add your fish filet. If cooking from frozen, keep the heat to a minimum until you are able to see that actually cooking is occurring. Continue to cook un-disturbed for 5 minutes or so, until the bottom of the filet is starting to brown.
  2. Using your spatula, chop fish into pieces, sauteeing as you go to insure fish is completely cooked.
  3. Layer your taco with fish, and the rest of the ingredients you like, listed above. If you LOVE red onions, add plenty, if you like heat - add more jalepeno. There is no right or wrong way to enjoy the flavors you love.
  4. There are 4 sauces here to choose from - or just use salsa and guacamole - it's all up to you and how you like your flavor profiles - or make it once one way, and a different way the next.


Side Dish Suggestions: These are fantastic as a stand alone, but feel free to add mexican rice, charro beans, or grilled corn. Guacamole
