Make Your Own *@#* Tacos

>> 6/29/10

There is many a time after a long day when I get home to the "what's for dinner" whine and would love to turn around and say make your own *@#* dinner. Instead we turn those nights into "Make your own fish/chicken/pork/beef/bean tacos night. This is the perfect meal for reinventing leftovers or just cooking up one quick protein. In grilling season we favor fish tacos using quickly marinaded strips of fish. Did you know that fancy expensive bottled marinades are just salad dressings in disguise??? Marinate fish in your favorite dressing for 30 minutes, sear on the grill and put out with warm tortillas and an assortment of veggies and you have dinner in a flash that your family assembles themselves.

Halibut Fish Tacos
1 lb halibut sliced into 1 x 3 inch strips (fillet is easier to cut but steaks are cheaper)
juice of 1 lemon and two limes
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp oregano
3 tbs olive oil
Sides-chopped tomatoes, shredded napa cabbage, sliced red peppers, diced onions, cilantro
Sour Cream
Make marinade and place fish in
Chop sides and place in bowls buffet style on counter
Heat tortillas in 350 onion wrapped in foil
Quick grill (2 min per side) or saute in several tbs of marinade
To guard against huge dollops of sour cream overwhelming the meal, spread a thin layer on the tortilla as the base. It helps keep everything sticking together too!

Crunch Time

Gives any well-intentioned cook, completely possible ways to get more real, fresh food onto the table without being shackled to a recipe or breaking the bank or getting an uprising from finicky eaters.
We are big on quick food prep - Chop Therapy - to make real food into fast food and we use what we term flavor savors that give a flavor punch to foods instead of using preservatives or processed ingredients.
We love getting the whole family involved in the food preparation effort. We also use some momgenutity for presenting real food in our homes so it stands a chance against the marketing assault of the Happy Meal.
Please share your ideas and share our posts with anyone you know who might want more real food in their meals.
