Quick and Easy Fish Taco Recipe

Just a quick recipe post, which reflects my hectic work schedule for the past couple weeks.  Not a lot of time to cook…darnit.  :)  Hooray for the upcoming 3-day weekend. This quick and easy fish taco recipe comes together in a flash.

I keep a package of Tilapia Filets in the freezer for those days when I drag home from work and just don’t have the gumption to cook. Or the energy to choose a restaurant and fight the lines. Or make the decision about which fast food take-out joint would be less toxic to our health.

Just place two frozen tilapia filets in the refrigerator in the morning before you leave for work and they’re thawed by the time you get home and with a little slicing, a quick dusting with flour and sautee, you’re enjoying fish tacos before you know it.

      I agree, I’m pretty picky about my fish tacos. Some just aren’t very good. This recipe is pretty mild in flavor.

    Fine…as long as I can substitute pork, beef or chicken for fish 😉 :)

    I have so much fish in my freezer from the boys summer fishing, I just hate the stuff. I need to cook it for them.

      Chris I know you hate the stuff … sometimes I do too. Being land locked, we can get some pretty odd offerings from the seafood counter, which ends up in a big “belch”. :/
