Sunday Eats

Sunday Morning I made chocolate chip pancakes using a "Pancake Pen" that Lace gave me back in the Fall. It was so fun to use! My hearts turned out a little bit warped, but they were still delicious!

Last night for dinner we had fish tacos. I have been wanting to try fish tacos for a while, but have been really intimidated by them! I haven't had a lot of experience cooking fish, and so I think that is what made me scared to try the fish tacos. But this week when I saw Tilapia on sale at Publix I decided it was time to try fish tacos. I looked at two different Cooking Light fish taco recipes. I made a Lime-Cilantro Crema from one recipe, then used another recipes for the fish tacos. We really liked the Lime-Cilantro crema, it gave the tacos a very fresh taste. I slightly modified the Cooking Light recipe, but here is what I used...

All you do is combine everything, and refrigerate until it is time to use!

Combine taco seasoning, orange juice, and lime juice, and coat fish. Then heat oil in a skillet and saute until fish is done.

It was really simple, but still really good! The crema definitely added another dimension to the taste. It is one that I will be making again...Healthy and delicious!

Lime-Cilantro Crema:
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp Fat Free Mayonnaise
4 Tbsp Light Sour Cream
1 and 1/2 tsp. Fresh Lime Juice
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 Garlic Clove, minced

Baja Fish Tacos:
2 Tbsp. Taco Seasoning
1 Tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice
1 Tbsp. Fresh Orange Juice
1 lb. tilapia
Iceburg Lettuce (can substitute cabbage)
