Cilantro Lime Fish Tacos
Monday, June 18, 2012
Ever since we planted our vegetable garden, I've been scouring the internet for recipes that use some of the plants we're growing. Not that anything is growing yet, but I want to be prepared for a summer of fresh vegetables straight from our back yard (fingers crossed that our plants stay alive!).
The ingredients that we do have currently available are the herb plants we picked out. Our row of basil, rosemary, oregano, and cilantro calls out to me every day, just wanted to be used in our dinners. So, naturally, I've gone a little cilantro-crazy recently. This isn't really new; most of my summer dinner dishes involve cilantro. I just love it twice as much now that it's free and grows just outside my back door.
So when I found this recipe for fish tacos that doesn't call for breading or deep frying, I knew I needed to try it out. I didn't use the jalapeno seeds because I was a little worried about the level of heat, but I'm definitely leaving them in next time. The tacos were already great, and a little spice will make them perfect. Obviously they had to be consumed alongside a mason jar of beer, because I drink everything out of mason jars lately. Not my fault that it makes everything taste better!
