Orange Roughy Fish Tacos

If you haven't figured it out by now, I love tacos!  Mexican food has definitely been a helpful crutch throughout this new diet of mine, because I hardly run across gluten unless it's a flour tortilla.  So last night, I came home from work to yummy smells of citrusy Fish Tacos.  Orange Roughy was used for this particular recipe because it's a mild white fish.  But you could also use halibut, cod, or any other mild white fish.  And to give it some extra flavor, lemon pepper seasoning was sprinkled on top to add a punch of freshness and tang.  We loaded the corn tortillas with all the traditional fixings and chowed down.  

What you'll need: serves about 3-4

2 large filets of Orange Roughy Fish
Corn Tortillas (warmed over a low flame on the stove to soften)
Canola Oil
Lemon Pepper (salt free)
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1/4 cup White Wine
Shredded Cabbage
Habanero and Lime Salsa (from Trader Joe's - sweet, tangy and spicy!)

Season both sides of the fish with a thin layer of lemon pepper and paprika.  To taste, add the black pepper and salt.  Saute in a pan (with a couple of tbsp of canola oil) on medium-high heat.  Cook each side for about 7 mins.  Remove the fish from the pan.  Add the white wine to the bits that are left in the pan.  With a wooden spoon, scrape up those bit and allow the wine to slightly evaporate (a few minutes).  Spoon these juices over the warm fish and finish it off with fresh lime juice.  Break the fish into small chunks and start loading your taco with the toppings - cabbage, avocados, tomatoes, salsa and more fresh lime juice!

  5. It seems everyone I talk to about wiper have their own thoughts that have been formulated not by magazine articles and fishing shows, but from their own personal quests.lươn đồng

  6. You seriously cannot have a fun fish recipes list without fish tacos. This fish recipe recommends using red snapper or orange roughy fish fillets. The fish is flavored with garlic butter and lime juice while it cooks. The finished tacos are topped with dollops of a combination of sour cream, mayonnaise, hot pepper sauce, and lime juice. Once your favorite taco toppings like lettuce and tomato are added, you will barely be able to wait to dig in to these yummy treats.
