Freakin Awesome Tacos!

Happy 100th post to MMMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

*fyi: this recipe may or may not be a huge plug for Trader Joe's

The other day, I was surfin the blogs when I came across this blog with this yummy-looking recipe. I had never had fish tacos (I'm not really into fish food), but they looked very easy, and delicious, and the hubby eats fish food, soooo I began to get excited (that's what happens when I find new recipes).

I changed it a little bit (due to personal preference and what ingredients I had). Because it got rave reviews -from both the husband, and our neighbors/best friends, I figured it passed the test and you deserve to be a part of the freakin-awesomeness!

Ingredients:
1 lb thawed tilapia (I got it from Trader Joe's and it was amazing! So fresh it didn't taste fishy AT ALL)
1 lime
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup Mango Salsa (or just a yummy fruit juice)
corn tortillas (I used 2 for each taco, so around 10)
black bean dip
1 cup shredded cheese
1 Tb vegetable oil
2 cups shredded cabbage
Step 1: make the slaw

I put the shredded cabbage in a bowl, added the oil, then 1 Tb of lime juice.
Stir to spread evenly, then add a pinch of salt and pepper. Let sit
Step 2: Prepare The Fish


I sat out 1/2 cup of mango salsa next to 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs (you can also crush up flavored crackers to add more zing) Take 1 inch cubes of the tilapia and roll in the salsa, then roll in the bread crumbs until covered

set crumbed tilapia on greased aluminum foil-covered cookie sheet.
Cook in oven at 350 for 12 minutes

Step 3: Prepare Tortillas
I did this step while the fish was cooking. You can just have the the tortillas plain if you'd like, but I wanted mine like those yummy ones at restaurants that have 2 tortillas with cheese melted in between. To do this, I would place a tortilla in hot vegetable oil in a frying pan for around 10 seconds (Don't deep fry it, just get it hot and oily to make it more flexible). Then I laid out the done tortilla on a pile of paper towels, sprinkled cheese on top, heated up another tortilla, placed that one on top, top with a paper towel, then start your next one. This was probably the hardest step -but soooooo worth it

Step 4: Make Tacos
Once fish is done, take out of oven. Take a ready tortilla, spread bean dip on it, place a few pieces of chicken inside, top with cheese, add some slaw, then add salsa

Face-contortingly gooood

Step 5: Eat and Feel Joy 
A perfect recipe for Cinco de Mayo!!!
Let me know how yours turn out!

HAPPY FRIDAY!
