Let’s make fish tacos!🐟 🐠 🐡🌮 🤤

Cooking…some people love it. Some people hate it. Some people do it only because they have to eat. I personally love cooking so I thought I’d share some common cooking terms and the recipe for one of my favorite meals, fish tacos!

*see definitions of cooking words in bold at the bottom of the page

Here’s what you need to serve 24 tacos:

24 small corn tortillas

1 ½ pounds / .68 kilos of white fish (I usually use tilapia)

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (if you don’t like your spicy food skip this ingredient)

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp unsalted butter

First, preheat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius (375 degrees Fahrenheit), spread olive oil on the sheet pan (or line it with aluminum or parchment paper) and place fish on sheet pan.

Next, in a small bowl stir the seasonings together: 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.

Then, drizzle olive oil over the fish and sprinkle all of the seasonings over the tilapia.

After that, bake the fish for 20-25 minutes.

While the fish is baking make your pico de gallo or Mexican salsa (see recipe below)

Next, heat up the tortillas. I put them directly on the stove burner but you can also wrap them in a damp paper towel and put them in the microwave for 15 to 30 seconds.

Finally, place your fish inside your tortilla and add your pico de gallo to the top of your tacos. Bon Appétit!

Mexican salsa (Pico de gallo) ingredients:

6 tomatoes, diced

1/2 red onion, minced

3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 jalapeño o ají (optional)

1 lime, juiced

1 clove of garlic, minced

1 pinch garlic powder

1 pinch ground cumin (or to taste)

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

Luckily the directions are super easy for the Mexican salsa. You just need to chop all the ingredients and stir them together. Wallah! (pronounced: WAH-la) You have a delicious “pico de gallo” (said in the United States with a “gringo accent”) or Mexican salsa for your yummy fish tacos
