Grouper Fish Tacos w/ BushFire & Papaya Glaze
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 13 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
1 10/12oz Grouper Fillet (marinated)
¼ Cup Red Cabbage, thinly sliced
3 Lettuce leaves, thinly sliced
2 Plum Tomatoes, chopped
1 Scallion, thinly sliced
2 tsp Jalapeno, minced (optional)
1 tsp. Flaming Flakes (Ground Red Pepper by Firehouse Spice)
4 Flour tortillas
Remove marinated fillet from fridge for 15 minutes before cooking. Add 1tsp dash of ground red pepper and mix gently (add tsp. olive oil if necessary). Slice fillet lengthwise and then slice in half, avoiding any bones. Place in a container and set aside. Prepare all produce and place aside.
Preheat 3 tbsp. Olive Oil in a frying pan for 5 minutes on medium head. Place grouper strips in the frying pan carefully and let cook for 5 minutes on each side, depending on the density of the fish. Place cooked fillets aside in a bowl. Heat Flour tortillas in a pan of 2 tsp. Olive Oil, for 2 minutes on the first side and 1 minute after turning over to achieve desired crispiness. Place tortillas aside. Layer the taco starting with lettuce and cabbage. Add fish and top with scallions, tomato and papaya glaze. Squeeze fresh lime over the fish and serve with apple carrot salad.
Servings: 4 Tacos
You can have a soft taco by heating the tortillas without oil and folding it around the ingredients (ensure to secure with a toothpick)
Flour Tortillas do fill with air during heating. To avoid air pockets or uneven cooking smooth the air pocket gently with the tongue or spatula in a circular motion This redistributes the air and keeps the tortilla flat
Test the flexibility of your fried tortilla about 1 minute after frying by carefully pressing and bending it evenly from top to bottom. This will let you know if it can be used for a taco as the tortilla needs to curve around the fillings.
Dairy items such as sour cream and mayonnaise can use be used in creating a topping or sauce.
Other colorful topping ideas include avocado and red onions
