Go Fishing: Cook Tacos

Monday, on John’s first day of retirement, the alarm sounded bright and early. The 4:45 wake up call signaled time to get out on the water for a day of fishing. An hour later he and my dad were throwing in their lines and at 7:45 I received a text message: Fish tacos tonight!

We feasted on a quick and easy dinner of fish tacos with black beans and rice.

Ingredients:

  • Bass filets
  • Olive Oil
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 cups Cole slaw
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (may want to add more)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (light)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • juice from one lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • taco sized tortillas

Creamy Sauce

Thoroughly mix mayonnaise, sour cream, cumin, chili powder, pepper, lime juice and a tablespoon of finely chopped cilantro. Refrigerate until ready to use. (This is best made 30 minutes or more before serving.)

Tomato Cilantro Topping

Combine tomatoes and cilantro.

Grilled Fish

Brush fish filets with olive oil and then sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning. Grill ’til flaky, flipping once, over medium low heat (about 5-7 minutes).

Place a couple teaspoons of Cole slaw in the center of the taco shell. Add fish pieces. Top with creamy sauce and tomato and cilantro mixture. Serve with black beans and yellow rice and sangria.

Another good reason to go fishing.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Mojo Time

I’ve always enjoyed the food at The Mojo Grill, but the restaurant was small, crowded, and loud so we ate there rarely. Now that they moved to their new location, The Mojo Grill may be my favorite place to eat.

Not only do they serve delicious food, they have live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Now dinner out turns into an event. Trivia nights, food and drink specials…every night’s planned for fun for those who want more than good food.

The one problem I’ve encountered at The Mojo Grill…deciding what to order. Fish tacos are my favorite, but Cuban sandwiches, burgers, wings, and pulled pork all compete for my attention.

And who can forget their wonderful nachos…but that brings another tough decision…chili or pulled pork?IMG_0944

Maybe the best solution to this problem is to visit The Mojo Grill more often!
