Are you ready for Cinco de Mayo? You know, that Mexican holiday that we all haphazardly celebrate with margaritas and pseudo Mexican food?
Well I have a recipe that will freshen up your Cinco de Mayo that is wheat free, gluten free and dairy free.
We’re going to use a fish that you may not expect – catfish.
But don’t catfish eat garbage?
This is farm raised catfish. No, it’s not organic. But, if you are on a budget and need a lean, clean source of protein – this may be it. The farm raised fish has a clean, mild flavor and takes on the flavors of the taco. If you’re curious about catfish, read more here.
Ok, let’s proceed:
Season the catfish filets with salt, pepper and paprika.
Fry in a hot cast iron skillet with melted coconut oil or butter, about 3-4 minutes on each side until done.
Fish Taco Toppings:
You can make these tacos your own with whatever toppings you desire. I really enjoy fresh, crunchy flavors on my tacos. That’s why I chose these ingredients:
- sweet red bell pepper
- grated carrot
- squeeze of lime
I served these fish tacos with my Sweet Corn, Black Bean and Tomato Salsa (sans beans)
You can serve these on a corn tortilla. These are an organic variety from my local co-op.
Wondering what to do with all of that left over cilantro?
