Fish Tacos with a side of the Playground

photo 5Hello everybody!!!! Happy Friday!  So, first things, first, you MUST make these fish tacos ASAP!  I used THIS RECIPE but modified it for both my taste and ease.  You guys know I like making blackened fish so this was a spin on that.  For the pico de gallo, I just used the Whole Foods pre-prepped.  It is delicious and I honestly do not have the patience or equipment to chop all of that stuff!  For the cliantro lime sauce, you will need:

1/4 cup mayo

1/4 cup sour cream

1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

1 tbsp fresh lime juice

Combine all ingredients and let marinate in the fridge for at least a half hour.

For the filling for the fish tacos, you will need:

1-2 fillets of your choice of fish (I wanted mahi but they were out so I used snapper- good choice) cut into 1/4 inch cubes

Healthy amount of blackening seasoning (I get this at Whole Foods as well; it is perfect)

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 clove garlic, minced

2 tbsp chardonnay

1 tbsp freshly chopped cilantro

This meal was a PERFECT summer dinner, served with corn and rice. I have a new method of cooking rice; instead of cooking with water, cook with broth for a hearty delicious BOLD flavor!  I will be repeating this mean often 😉 And now, for the “cutest side dish ever” 🙂
