A few weeks ago, my grocery store had cod fillets on sale, but when I went to purchase them, they were sold out. Because the price was so good, I got a raincheck. Today, when I went to pick up a few things, I cashed in on my raincheck!
Even before the grocery store,I woke up thinking about fish tacos. Maybe they were in one of my dreams?? So, before I headed off to the hospital early this morning to see a few patients, I got on my iPad to find a recipe. Below is my version!
Simple Blackened Fish Tacos
2 and 1/2 tsp paprika
2 and 1/2 tsp dried Mexican oregano
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp crushed red peppers
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
4 cod fillets
8 corn tortillas
Spray the grill pan before heating. Heat grill pan over medium-high heat. Combine spices, honey, and lime juice in a bowl. Using your hands, coat both sides of the fish. Grill each side for 3 to 4 minutes.
Wrapped in a damp paper towel, warm corn tortillas in microwave for 30-45 seconds.
**Recipe Inspiration: Some Kitchen Stories
To top the cod, I also made a black bean and corn salsa, similar to what I made with my healthy chicken enchiladas (minus the edamame). Click link for recipe.
And then, I combined 1 cup of fat free sour cream with 1/4 cup chunky salsa.
Lastly, I had some store-bought shredded Mexican cheese and some green cabbage I shredded in the food processor.

A delicious success! Little man really enjoyed the fish and black bean soup too!!
