August Challenge: Lime, Fish and Shrimp Tacos

Well, how has your challenge gone so far? Finding new veggies you like? New Recipes? I sure hope so. If not, I am here to help!

I know it is fish and many people do not like fish, but I have had many people who do not like fish who really enjoy this dish and ask for the recipe. Give it a try.

What you need for the marinade:
White fish, I used talapia
Zest and juice of 2-3 limes
Minced garlic, 3-4 cloves
Small Shallot minced
White wine, either sweet or dry ( you can also use white wine vinegar)
Thyme, fresh is best, but you can use dried. Several sprigs of fresh or several good shakes of dried
Sea salt and pepper

Other ingredients I used:
Bell peppers
Spicy peppers
Lettuce for "taco shell"
Any other taco like items you like to put on, like guacamole, sour cream, cheese

What to do:
Mix together all of the ingredients except fish and shrimp for marinade, together in a bowl or shallow dish. Place fish and shrimp into the mixture and shake it around and allow to marinate 1 hour to over night, the longer the better. Bake the fish in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until it is firm and cooked to your liking. Saute the shrimp in a pan on the stove with butter, or you can do it in the oven with the fish.

For the veggies, all the peppers and onions, I cut them in large junks and grilled them. After grilling, cut into smaller chunks if you would like, and toss with olive oil and salt and pepper.

 Once everything is cooked and ready to go, assemble your taco on lettuce leafs and enjoy the fresh tasting yumminess! Doesn't that look tasty?!?! You and your family will be eating healthy, tasty food and not even realize it.

Saving the world one stick of butter at a time.
God's many blessing,
