Blue Ribbon Recipe

These tacos are plain incredible. We were expecting them to be good but were overwhelmed by the impact of all the flavors when the ingredients were mixed together.  The marinade for the fish would be fun to try in other fish dishes as well. We think it would be good to use on the grill or even on a plank. The hint to squeeze the heated lime on the taco really hits the spot! Don't forget.

  • Frying the fish in a skillet.
    After marinating, coat fish with flour and Old Bay. Heat just enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and lightly fry your fish until golden brown.
  • Fried fish on paper towels.
    Place fried fish on paper toweling to drain.
  • Frying tortillas in a skillet.
    Drizzle the same pan with additional olive oil once again and cook tortillas until limp but not crispy. HINT: Use two tortillas for each taco so they aren't as messy to eat.

    Add your toppings and enjoy! HINT: Take a whole lime and put it in the microwave for about 8 seconds. The lime will be oh-so juicy! Squeeze it all over the taco once you have it ready to eat! YUM YUM!
