Tasty Tuesdays

Win some and lose some! Today was a loss for the children, but a win for me! In my house we are divided down the middle when it comes to appreciating the taste of fish, so for that reason I don't usually cook it when Brian is home. He is gone today, so I enjoyed, but most of the children suffered :(

Recipe: Fish Tacos with Lime Cilantro Crema (from Cooking Light)

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
3 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1 teaspoon grated lime rind
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice (I only used about 1/2 tsp. and it would have been too much if I had added the full amount)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 pounds red snapper fillets (we used Cod Fillets, and they tasted great)
Cooking spray
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas...pictured above are white corn tortillas (we all preferred Flour Tortillas)
2 cups shredded cabbage
Preheat oven to 425°.
To prepare crema, combine the first 8 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
To prepare tacos, combine cumin and next 5 ingredients (through garlic powder) in a small bowl; sprinkle spice mixture evenly over both sides of fish. Place fish on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 9 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Place fish in a bowl; break into pieces with a fork. Heat tortillas according to package directions. Divide fish evenly among tortillas; top each with 1/4 cup cabbage and 1 tablespoon crema.

Critiques ~

Emily: "Very good! Love it even more with a Flour Tortilla"
Megan: "Mmmmm..."
Zachary (who really hates fish): Ate one bite, spit it out and said, "Yuck!"
Anna: She didn't like the sauce, but ate everything else and said, "It's okay."
Amelia: "I like it...a little bit."
