Grilled Garlic Lime Fish Tacos

I don’t know about you but I find fish tacos at restaurants frustrating. Very rarely do I find a delicious fish taco anywhere. Do I find a good fish taco? Sometimes. A great fish taco? Not yet. Why am I so picky? I really don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the fact that many restaurants only offer a fried fish rather than grilled. Maybe it’s the lack of a corn tortilla. Many times it’s the use of iceberg lettuce rather than crunchy cabbage. Whatever it is, I have yet to find that fish taco that has me coming back for more.

What’s the solution to my problem? There are probably lots of solutions to many of my problems. This fish taco problem though…I think the solutions is to make my own fish tacos! I sat down for a few minutes and thought about all of the various components of a fish taco which speak to me (not literally of course!). The chili lime flavors, the crunchy cabbage, the grilled and firm fish, the earthy corn tortillas. Then there has to be a sauce that  brings all of the flavors together. After all of these yummy thoughts, I put together what I thought would be my perfect fish taco. And guess what? They were outstanding! I am so looking forward to the leftovers tonight! Now it’s your turn…don’t go out tonight – make your own Grilled Garlic Lime Fish Tacos!

Cajun Tilapia with Roasted Blueberries

Cajun Tilapia with Roasted Blueberries

It feels so good to be back! After some health issues and a major job change, it is time to get back to what I enjoy. Without these distractions and honestly, all those energy zappers, I have been dreaming about new recipes. Today’s Cajun Tilapia with Roasted Blueberries is one I have tried before. Each time I made it, I was dissatisfied with some minor detail. I think I’ve got it right this time.

First, you have to find your favorite cajun seasoning. Maybe one day I will come up with my own seasoning blend but until then, I will use Weber Grill Creations N’Orleans Cajun Seasoning. Not a plug…just my favorite. It’s got a kick, but it’s not overpowering. Second, go minimal on the salt in your blueberries. If you use too much, it will taste weird…kind of soapy. Third, use a cast iron skillet if you have one. It really does just push the flavor over the top. Once you get the blend of flavors just right, this dish is delicious! It has that mildly spicy kick with the cooling sweetness of the warm blueberries. Try this one this weekend…you won’t regret it!
