Weird title? For sure. But you see, I get a ton of questions every week asking me what I cook for my family.. Being gluten free, and highly allergic to many other foods makes things difficult and when my allergies come up in casual conversation.. the question is always.. “What do you eat then??”
So, I thought I would re-vamp an old category that had gone by the wayside with my old blog. Buckle your seatbelts folks, I’m starting it back up. Cross your fingers because I’m hoping to do this weekly.
Sidenote.. You need to know that I loathe committing to any kind of schedule/routine/organizationalchartofdeath. Schedules and timetables and strategies.. it scares me so very very badly. I just signed up to work in my daughter’s classroom.
All year long.
I’m having a serious case of parental volunteer sign up remorse. Pray for me. And let’s hope I can remember to post the weekly eatings of my fam. Because it is truly riveting information.
So, back to the post at hand. We had Grilled Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos for dinner. Sometimes I will make a side, sometimes not. Tonight, I kept it simple and filled the warm corn tortillas with loads of fresh veggies and called it salad. 🙂
They have packaged 1 pound bags of boneless skinless Wild Mahi Mahi in their freezer section! The huge kicker? It’s 2.99 a pound. I was elated to find this last week. I love fish and love to find create ways to feed it to my meat and potato loving men. It’s inexpensive because it is smaller pieces of fish. Perfect for fish tacos!! You need to know.. I fed my 5 member family (3 adults, 2 children) quality grilled fish tacos for $8.
Umm.. you can’t even get 3 tacos at Rubios for less than that, and we all had 2-3 each. Homecooking is really where it’s at.
There isn’t really a recipe for this meal. I just seasoned the fish with garlic and onion powder, chili powder, and salt and pepper. Grilled it on medium high heat and put it in a corn tortilla with organic romaine and cilantro.
My one big tip for frozen fish that has been defrosted?? Rinse it well with cold water. It truly takes away that super fishy taste alot of frozen fish has. This only works for a firmer fish though. More tender cuts will fall apart with a rinsing.
Here’s the final yumminess.. enjoyed by even my 11 year old. Although in the interest of full honesty… he totally picked all the cilantro out of his taco.
What are you having for dinner??
