Chipotle Lime Fish Tacos

Chipotle Fish Tacos: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

A few years ago my husband had his first fish taco and his first taste of malt vinegar. Ever since then anytime we go to a restaurant, if they have fish tacos he orders them and asks for malt vinegar. Sometimes he will only want to go to a restaurant if they have fish tacos.

So I finally decided it was time to try and make them at home. Even though I do not like fish I still tried them and was pleasantly surprised at how they tasted. My husband, however, loved them and said I can make them anytime for him.

Chipotle Lime Fish Tacos
Ingredients:
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
3/4 teaspoon ground chipotle powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon cornstarch
4 large tilapia fish fillets
black pepper, to taste
12 corn tortillas

Directions:
Move the oven rack to the highest position and turn the broiler on to high or preheat oven to 500ยบ F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

In a small bowl combine the cumin, coriander, onion powder and garlic powder. Add in the olive oil, lime juice and cornstarch, mixing to combine.

Place the fish on the prepared baking sheet, with the dark vein-side facing up) season with black pepper. Broil or bake for 3-4 minutes.

Carefully flip the fish over and evenly spread the seasoning mixture over the fish. Broil or bake for an additional 4-6 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.

Using a fork break the fish into large pieces and place into tortillas. Top the fish with the Mexican slaw.

Enjoy!!!

Notes:
This recipe will make about 12 tacos, depending on how much fish you put in each taco.
