Fish tacos by Emily
Talapia cut in 1" by 2"pieces (1lb or so)
Wondra flour 5 TBSP (or rice flour)
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp red pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 TBSP canola oil
small flour tortillas
salsa* (*any salsa works, but the mango salsa from costco was perfect with the sweet coconut sauce)
1. Make coconut sauce, set aside.
2. Cut fish and put into bowl with flour mixed and spices, lightly coat.
3. Heat oil in a skillet on about med-med high.
4. Cook fish 3-4 min per side making sure each piece is in the oil until crispy and cooked through, golden brown.
1 cup cream of coconut (Coco Lopez--in the mixed drinks isle, or any brand)and really just use the whole can, it is a smidge over a cup.
1 lime, zest and juice--about 1/4 cup juice
Next time I just might marinate the fish in the "sauce" for a while, before cooking it up.
we have sauce left over, and I'll use it in other recipes that call for a creamy sweetness!
