Sunday Supper...Fish Tacos

 

One of the Sister's very favorite dishes is Fish tacos...we are all craving lighter fare right now so these are the perfect choice...

Love this recipe from...Closet Cooking

Ingredients:

1 pound white fish such as tilapia, cod, etc.

1 tablespoon oil

1 lime, juice and zest

1 jalapeno, finely diced

1 clove garlic, chopped

1 green onion, finely sliced

1 handful cilantro, chopped

1/2 teaspoon cumin, toasted and ground

salt and pepper to taste

8 (4 inch) corn tortillas

1 batch tomatillo pico de gallow

3 cups cabbage, shredded

1 batch cilantro lime crema - see below

2 large avocados, sliced

Directions

Marinate the fish in the oil, lime juice and zest, jalapeno, garlic, green onion, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper for 10-20 minutes.

Grill the fish over medium-high heat until cooked, about 4-6 minutes per side.

The fish will be cooked when it flakes easily and it is no longer translucent. Flake the fish and serve in tortillas garnished with your favourite toppings.

It's Friday and it's Fabulous!..Clothe Your Dining Table

We have a new obsession...You don't like your dining table or can't afford just the right one...

Put a cloth on it...but we're not talking about just any old cloth.

My friend Renae Moore  who just visited me from Atlanta recently did a lined to the floor cloth for a round dining table out of commercial grade creme burlap.  So affordable yet so fabulous!

What do you think?  Would you ever consider doing this?
