So, I had some leftover ingredients from my old food I’d made recently as well as some fish still left in the freezer, so I got some tortillas when I was buying food at the store for the lasagna and decided to make fish tacos.
I defrosted and breaded the fish using the same method I used with the breaded tilapia (click here to review).
The difference was that this time I decided to pan fry the fish.
I filled the bottom of a frying pan with oil (maybe 1/8 inch deep) and turned the stove on high.
I took the breaded fish and placed it in the pan for about 2 minutes on each side – again, it’s very important with fish that you do not overcook it.
Tortillas were stacked and placed in the microwave for about 10 seconds; heating them makes them more pliable.
I placed two tortillas against each other on the plate and put the following ingredients into them.
-cooked fish – shredded into small chunks (not too small though)
-shredded mexican cheese – leftover from making enchiladas
-chopped carrots – bag leftover from salad
-red cabbage – bag leftover from salad
I didn’t put any condiment on this but I’m sure there are plenty that you could use that would taste great.
It turned out delicious. Here’s what it looked like:
I ended up eating four of these – so good.
