Simple Fish Tacos
>>Howard: With all the hype and the Super
Bowl just days away, we’re getting everything ready for the big game. Now, we may not agree
on who we want to win the game, but one thing that everybody can agree on is that we like
lots of food. And if you’re looking for a new game-day favorite, today’s popular-as-ever
fish tacos are just the ticket, and talk about easy.
We start by cutting up some fish fillets into chunks and seasoning them with a combo of
cumin, chili powder, garlic and a bit of salt. And if you’re wondering what kind of fish
to use … after testing many, we found that U.S. Farm-Raised catfish works great here
‘cause not only is it mild-tasting, it’s a little
firmer and holds up really well when we sauté it. Plus, it’s a great value, which is pretty
important when we’re feeding a crowd. And to give our tacos their crunch, we combine
some bagged coleslaw mix with a cut up onion, chopped green pepper and a diced up orange
(to give it a fresh taste) and we’re going to toss that with a homemade vinaigrette.
And once our catfish is done, we add a squeeze of lime juice and a little chopped cilantro
… and it’s ready to spoon into our flour tortillas.
What a great way to lighten up our game-day buffet. Not only is our slaw packed with all
sorts of veggies, our U.S. farm-raised catfish is heart healthy, and the tortillas have less
carbs than bread. Put out a platter of everything and let everyone
make their very own. … And when they roll up the flavor-packed fish with the crunchy
slaw, you’ll definitely have a game-day winner! The recipe for Simple Fish Tacos is online now just in time for this weekend’s
Super Bowl … or really anytime you want something that’s
a nice change of pace to your weeknight dinner routine. And that’s definitely … as Mr.
Food would say … “OOH IT’S SO GOOD!!®” Very good.
