I'd never had a fish taco before just recently. They are made with catfish or tilapia where we are, and I really like them. Fish tacos are made with flour tortillas in our local restaurants. Although it would probably be easy enough to ask for them with corn tortillas, I wanted to try making them at home. DH and I like ours sprinkled with lime juice and doused with green pepper sauce, but salsa also compliments them well. The girls like their catfish nuggets without any adornment at all except for giggles and meows.
1 pound catfish fillets
1 lime, halved
1/2 cup rice flour
1/4 cup potato flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground chipotle
1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
1 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
purchased rice tortillas
Salsa and Green Pepper Sauce to serve
Rinse catfish and pat dry. Cut 1 inch thick slices and sprinkle with lime juice. Combine therice flour, potato flour, salt and ground chipotle. Drop the catfish pieces into the flour mixture and dust well. Repeat if needed to cover all exposed areas of the fish. Heat 2 tbsp. of olive oil in a skillet (I like using cast iron). Cook the catfish pieces until lightly browned on all sides, this should take about 5 - 7 minutes.
Combine the vinegar and the salt, toss with the cabbage. Put some cabbage and a few slices of avocado down the middle of a tortilla and top with a few pieces of catfish. Serve with Green Pepper Sauce, salsa and lime wedges.
