Last night I was finally able to make a recipe from it.
Get ready for the juiciest, most flavorful, delicious and light tasting fish tacos EVER!
What you will Need
-Ruby Red Grapefruit
-1/2 jalapeno pepper (finely chopped)
-white fish (we used sole)
-6 inch tortillas
-fresh lime juice
-shredded napa cabbage
First, you want to make your taco filler.
Slice up as much red onion as you’d like. Cut your avocado into little cubed pieces, and cut your grapefruit (I used half) into small cubed pieces as well.
Add your colorful mixture into a bowl. Cut your lime in half and squeeze the fresh lime juice into the bowl.
Lastly, sprinkle some salt into your mixture to bring out the flavor in your ingredients even more.
I couldn’t find halibut at the wholefoods we go to, so we purchased 8 thin fillets of sole instead.
Generously salt and pepper each fillet and add it to a large skillet with EVOO. Cook on each side for 4-5 minutes each and then place them on a sheet of paper towel to soak up any extra EVOO.
Time to Fill your Tortillas
If you do not have a gas stove to crisp your tortillas over, then place your tortillas on the grates of your oven at 375 degrees and let them crisp up that way. That should take about 5-7 minutes.
Now it’s time to fill those bad boys! You can add whichever toppings you’d like first, but I filled it this way:
2. grapefruit, avocado, onion and lime mixture
3. napa cabbage
4. jalapeno (finely chopped up…seeds and all)
Now dig in!
I’m in the process of switching most of my beauty products and “other” things that I consume over to organic/ natural.
Along with the amazing fish tacos, we paired it with an organic bottle of Badger Mountain Chardonnay. It was light and sparkling, a perfect match for the light and flavorful tacos.
Question of the day: What’s your favorite toppings for fish tacos? What drink do you like to pair it with.
