Looking forward to Easter holidays this year? Are your kids excited for the Easter Bunny to stop at their house? Maybe you have a big family dinner on the Friday or Sunday? This year I am looking to mix things up a bit when it comes to the traditional fish dinner for Good Friday. Someone suggested to me that fish tacos are a great idea for Good Friday as it keeps the tradition of eating fish, but adds something fun for your family to eat together. I did some research and found a recipe that looks easy and delicious! What traditions does your family have for the holiday?
I found this recipe online from www.natashaskitchen.com and she also uses a homemade fish sauce that pulls all the elements of this recipe together.
Fish Taco Ingredients:
- 24 small white corn tortillas
- 1 1/2 lb tilapia

- 1 Tbsp Olive oil
- 1 Tbsp Butter
Fish Taco Toppings:
- 1/2 small purple cabbage
- 2 medium avocado sliced
- 2 roma tomatoes diced (optional)
- 1/2 diced red onion

Fish Taco Sauce Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/3 cup Mayo
- 2 Tbsp lime juice from 1 medium lime

Line large baking sheet with parchment or silicone liner. In a small dish, combine seasonings: 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper and evenly sprinkle seasoning mix over both sides of tilapia.
Lightly drizzle fish with olive oil and dot each piece with butter. Bake at 375 for 20-25 min. To brown edges, broil for 3-5 minutes at the end if desired.
Combine all Taco sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk until well blended.
To serve the tacos, toast quickly toast the corn tortillas on a large dry skillet or griddle over medium/high heat.
To assemble: start with pieces of fish then add remaining ingredients finishing with a generous sprinkle of cotija cheese and finally that awesome taco sauce! Serve with a fresh lime wedge to squeeze over tacos.
