Tuesday I thawed fish for supper. But then our week just got worse and worse and I never actually made fish. I can’t even remember what we had now but it was not fish. So by today, Thursday, I had to make fish or throw it away since it was too late to refreeze it. I really didn’t want fish but decided I didn’t want to waste it either. It wasn’t amazing fish, just frozen tilapia, but it still died for us to eat it and I paid for it so throwing it away seemed like such a waste. So in the end we decided to have fish tacos! A good way to use the fish up and eat something we generally like too!
The fish I cut into strips and was originally going to bread crumb them and make them crispy, then I moved to just pan-frying the plain fish, and then because the fish stuck to my pan, I switched to baking the fish and called it good. Healthier that way anyways I guess. So it was just baked strips of fish with taco seasoning on it (and actually I used guacamole seasoning because I must have used all our taco seasoning and didn’t feel like making my own…it worked), and along with that there was purple cabbage strips, cheese/sour cream, avocado, tomato and salsa. On the side was jalapeno refried beans (a can of diced jalapenos and a can of refried beans, not fancy), and steamed broccoli and red peppers. It worked… it wasn’t pizza or anything, but it was also not-wasted fish and healthier than what I really wanted to eat for supper with something like 7 vegetables (if you count canned jalapenos as a veggie) and a fruit (Avocado) so it was a reasonable end to the fish I just wasn’t feeling anything for!
