When we last left off on this taco adventure, the eats were vegetarian and Tuesday never tasted so delicious in such a short time. That is, until this week. Because sometimes you get home late from the gym, or a function, or even just work and all you want to do is eat within 10 minutes of kicking down the front door.
Enter every trying-to-avoid-another-night-of-takeout-person’s dream come true, frozen fish (salmon, tuna, mahi mahi, etc) burgers, like these. Heat up a pan, pour yourself a glass of wine or beer or something stronger, and in about 10 minutes flat, you’ve got a variety of dinner options. Tonight, let’s make it mahi mahi tacos.
Shell: Store-bought corn tortillas
Filling: mahi mahi seasoned with lime juice, salt and pepper, garlic & cayenne pepper
Toppings: cotijo cheese, diced tomatoes, fresh cilantro & store-bought salsa verde
There’s no recipe: So I made it up as I went. To get this done in under 10 minutes, dice the tomato and wash the cilantro while the fish is cooking and your cat is going crazy trying to get a piece. Then, you’re pretty much finished. Assemble, devour, repeat next Tuesday.
Results: I know I’ve said Taco Tuesday was an easy weeknight dinner in the past, but this is pushing it even further to that extreme. I questioned if I could even include it, but it’s just too valuable of a Taco Tuesday tip to keep it to myself. What are you making over from your freezer recently? Let me know—I’m always hungry for a quick trick.
