  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
Ingredient List Tomato Salsa:
  • 3 Medium fresh tomatoes, seeded & diced
  • 3 Tbsp red onion, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp jalapeno, finely diced
  • 1 Tbsp e.v. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • pinch black pepper
Ingredient List Tacos:
  • 1 1/2lb cod fillets
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped –as garnish
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges –as garnish


  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • For the Guacamole – Mash it all up in a bowl.  Add salt to taste.
  • For the Cabbage – Mix all ingredients in a bowl.  Add salt to taste.
  • For the Tomato Salsa – Mix all ingredients in a bowl.  Add salt to taste.
  • For the Tacos:  Give a little squeeze of  lime juice (~1 Tbsp) on the fish.  Lightly salt & pepper, sprinkle on some cumin, and place in a lightly oiled pan.  Cut the fish into manageable sizes to fit the pan, if needed.  Cover and bake for ~15 minutes or until fish is flaky.
  • There’s a couple different ways to warm up tortillas.  Warming up is tasty but also makes the tortillas more “pliable” (and therefore stronger) when filled.
  • Heat a dry pan to medium high heat.  Add one tortilla at a time to pan and turn over when it starts to puff up and/or get pliable.  Warm up the other side.
  • Place tortillas in microwave and cover with a damp paper towel and warm up, checking every 20 seconds until all are hot.
  • Wrap tortillas in a packet of aluminum foil and bake at 250F for ~ 20 minutes.  Keep tortillas warm at the kitchen table by covering with a dish towel.
  • Make your tacos!  Fill tortillas with fish, guacamole, salsa, cabbage.  Top with cilantro and with a lime garnish.  Happy Eating!  Beckie
