Today I have a guest recipe contributor, my daughter Amanda. She asked me to watch her sweet puppy Teddy this weekend and of course I said yes. As a thank you, she wrote this post 4 me. That was so nice and really means a lot to me. Thanks A!!
From Amanda: This is my favorite recipe for Fish Tacos besides fried fish tacos of course. This Martha Stewart recipe is not nly healthy it tastes wonderful!
Favorite Fish Tacos
1 bunch of fresh cilantro
4 tablespoons of lime juice (2 limes)
3 tablespoons of olive oil
course salt and ground pepper
1/2 bunch of radishes about 4oz trimmed, halved and thinly sliced ( I use a mandolin to get them really thin)
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1/2 jalapeno (ribs and seeds removed) minced
1 1/2 pounds of tilapia (about 4)
cumin, coriander, garlic powder
12 corn tortillas
Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. In a blender, combine cilantro, 2 tablespoons lime juice, 2 tablespoons oil, and 2 tablespoons water; season with salt and pepper. Blend until pureed. Set salsa aside.
In a small bowl, mix together remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice, remaining tablespoon oil, radishes, scallions, and jalapeno; season with salt and pepper. Set radish salad aside.
Place tilapia on a rimmed baking sheet; season with coriander, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Broil until opaque throughout, 4 to 5 minutes; break up into chunks.
Meanwhile, using tongs, hold tortillas over a gas flame until lightly toasted or toast in a hot pan, about 30 seconds per side.
To assemble, fill tortillas with fish and radish salad; top with salsa verde and fold.
