SPRING COMFORT FOOD: TACOS FOR THE SOLE

Despite the crazy wintery weather this past weekend, we have had a few hints that spring is around the corner.  I don’t know about you, but when spring rolls around I start craving different foods – often lighter fare.  I was having a couple friends over for a casual dinner.  We were craving Mexican, but were feeling “beefed out” from the past week.  I was craving fish, so I decided to take a typical Mexican dish and, as my friends like to call it, “Diana-fy” it.   The end result was the birth of my latest culinary creation:  Fish Tacos!  Yes, you heard me.  I said Fish Tacos.  Laugh, roll your eyes, and then try this recipe:

INGREDIENTS:

2 Fillets of Sole

¾ Cup All Purpose Flour

2 tsp each of Chili Powder, Cayenne Pepper

Salt & Pepper to taste

2 TBS vegetable oil

4 Tortillas (small)

1-2 Tomatoes

¼ Red Onion, chopped

1 Clove of Garlic, minced

½ Jalapeno Pepper, finely chopped

1 Lime

½ Cup Sour Cream

½ head Romaine Lettuce, chopped

1 Green Onion, sliced

DIRECTIONS:  Prepare Fresh Salsa:  Chop tomatoes, jalapeno pepper and red onion. Mix together with salt, juice of half a lime, and minced garlic clove.

Prepare Cool Chili-Lime Sauce:  Mix sour cream with the zest of half a lime, the juice of ¼ lime, 1 tsp each of chili powder and cayenne pepper.  If you like more heat, add hot sauce.

Chop Romaine Lettuce and Green Onion.  Mix together.

Preheat oven to 300°F.  Wrap tortillas in foil and place in oven to warm.

Prepare Fish:  Mix salt and pepper, 1 tsp each of cayenne pepper and chili powder with flour.

Heat vegetable oil in a skillet.  While the oil is heating, dredge sole fillets in the flour mixture.

Sauté the fillets for 4 minutes per side or until golden brown and crispy on the outside.  Set aside, and keep warm.

And now for the best part:  Assemble tacos and enjoy with a nice cold cerveza or a glass of your favourite white wine!!

  1. Again, I can attest to how great this recipe is … If you know me, you know it’s not because I’ve actually made them. I’ve just been lucky to have been served them a couple times. They are my new favourite meal!!
