The girls are really overjoyed about the snow too! Haha.
Tilapia seemed like the logical choice for what we had available. Our Wal-Mart doesn't have a butcher's area or a fish area - everything is just put out or frozen, so we went with frozen. I like to see what's being cut - but tonight I am winging it. I'd prefer fresh seafood, but in the mountains, in south west VA, it just isn't happening. (80 something more days until graduation, 80 something more days until graduation...)
David is making a corn salsa. I am working on the rest.
Tequila Marinade for Tilapia
1 shot of tequila
2 limes - juiced
1 shallot diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon wasabi powder
Directions: Whisk everything together until there are no clumps from the wasabi powder. Let it sit in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes to cool down a little and settle into the flavors. You are Ready to go marinade some fish now.
We chose Tilapia because it is great in fish tacos as a white flakey fish. You can choose whatever white fish you like, but I will recommend tilapia.
Now, I just put the fish in the bowl with the marinade for about 20-30 minutes before I put them on the cookie sheet to bake.
Baking the fish: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil (we used non-stick and it really works and is amazing!). Gently lay the fish on the cookie sheet. Cook for about 12 minutes total, check them after 6 minutes to see how they are cooking.
ready to go!
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 lime juiced
red pepper flakes
Directions: Prepare a pot to boil the tomatillos in. Bring water to a boil and add the husked and washed tomatillos into the boiling water. Remove after 5 minutes.
In a food processor, add the remained of the ingredients. Add the tomatillos after they have cooled a little bit. Boom. Done. Super easy and delicious.
Side dishes: tomatillo guacamole, boiled shrimp, and spicy sautéed shrimp
