Fish Tacos

Over the weekend Audley and cleaned out our raised garden beds, bringing in the very last of our tomatoes, peppers and green onion for the year.  

There wasn’t really enough to preserve, so I decided that we would have our last perfectly fresh meal of the summer.

On our Saturday menu?
Broiled fish & shrimp tacos with cilantro lime slaw.
Light, filling, and very fresh; definitely a meal we all enjoyed!
Ingredients for the Tacos were simple:

1 1/2 pounds of Tilapia
3/4 pound medium shrimp
Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning
Garlic Powder
2 Fresh Limes
Pam spray
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Black Beans
Fresh tomato, peppers, and onion
Salsa (I used La Mexicana from the deli)
Whole Wheat tortilla shells
Cilantro-Lime slaw (recipe to follow)
Marinate the fish and shrimp in fresh lime juice about 30 minutes, and chop your fresh vegetables for the tacos.  
Spray a broiler pan with Pam spray and place the tilapia filets on it.  Season generously with Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime season and a little garlic powder.  Broil on low until the fish is flakey and cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Using a non-stick skillet and the one tablespoon of olive oil, sauté’ your marinated shrimp.  There will be no need to season this.
Heat your black beans in a sauce pan, seasoning them with garlic powder, chili powder and maybe a little cayenne pepper if you like a kick.
Set your table for everyone to make their own tacos as they like.

I love to add everything from extra fresh veggies to the black beans and slaw on my tacos!

Now for the topping for your fish tacos.
One bag of shredded angel hair slaw
Medium red onion, diced
4 Jalapeño peppers, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
juice of 2 fresh limes
1 tsp. ground cumin
Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Let chill in the refrigerator about 2 hours before serving.  This is really tasty on any taco dish and a wonderful alternative to sour cream and cheese.
It’s kind of sad to see the end of all the fresh produce we have enjoyed this summer, but it has been so delicious!
Are your gardens still producing anything this summer?  What have you done with your produce?

Linking up with Foodie Friday.

  1. I have never had a fish taco. I might have to change that. Wonder what it would taste like with haddock instead of tilapia. Interesting topping, though I can't give up my sour cream or my fake sour cream…yogurt cheese.

  2. Jen, I took the liberty of putting this Mexican one in instead of your link which didn't quite match the theme. I hope you don't mind!
