Fish Tacos

After eating amazing fish tacos in Cancun, I was inspired to continue my search for a good homemade recipe.
Unique to this recipe is soaking fish in milk.

1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
pat of butter
1 pound tilapia (or firm white fish, like flounder, cod, halibut) cut into 1/2″ strips
12 6″ corn tortillas
2 cups shredded cabbage
tomatoes chopped (I like to use grape tomatoes)

1. In medium bowl add milk and fish
2. In another dish, mix together flour, chili, 1 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper.
3. Pour oil into 12″ pan & place over medium- high heat until it shimmers & about to smoke.
4. Remove fish from milk bath and dredge through flour mix.
5. Add butter then fish to pan. Cook 3-4 minutes then flip and cook 1 minute. Place fish on paper towel lined plate
6. Heat tortillas over medium heat.
7. Top tortillas with fish, cabbage, tomatoes and drizzle with sauce of your choice ( Chipotle, Lime crema, pico de gallo, Frank’s Red Hot)

Serves 4-6
