    Fish tacos.

    Yep, you read right.

    Fish tacos.

    Basically, take any kind of white fish (I like haddock or cod, you can add shrimp or crab meat if you desire), rinse, dry, flour it, fry it in light oil till golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Once cool, mince with a sharp knife.

    Now, you can buy corn tortillas at the market, but I make mine using Bob’s Red Mill Masa Harina and a tortilla press.

    Take the minced fish, put into a tortilla, but do not over stuff it! 1) Over stuffing will lead to the excess coming out of the tortilla as it cooks, 2) You need room for all the other goodies you are going to top the taco with!

    In a heavy skillet, heat just enough light oil to cover the bottom of the skillet.

    Add the fish taco (one or more depending on the skillet size, I do 4 at a time), and cook till it is lightly to medium brown. The more brown, the more crunchy. Just dont over do it or it will burn. Using tongs turn over and brown the other side. Pull and drain on paper towels.

    Avocado slaw. Take 2 (or more depending on how many people you are feeding) ripe avocados, split them open, pit them and scoop out the flesh into a decent sized bowl. Season with salt and pepper, add cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice. Using a potato masher, mash! Some people will mash 2 avocados, and then add a rough chopped third to give it some texture.
    Take some cabbage, and thinly slice. Then chop. I like the crunch it gives. Dice some onion. Mix both the cabbage and the onion in with the avocados.

    Test for taste, adjust accordingly.

    If you like, add chipotle pepper, cayenne, or other hot chili pepper to the avocado slaw. I generally let people top the assembled taco with those spices as they like.

    Top the fish taco with the avocado slaw, black beans, and cheese.

    Sounds good, we do fish tacos occasionally but bake them rather than fry them.

    Wonder how it would be using trout.
