This week we celebrated my husband’s birthday. Secretly, I think he would like me to tell you that we celebrate his 29th birthday year after year ~ haha (and, of course I would like to tell you that little wish for mine too when it rolls around…)! Just like everything in my life, special family celebrations revolve around food (lol). And, so it’s no surprise that I made a special menu just for him as part of the weekend long celebration that included many of his favorites. I surprised him on Sunday to wrap everything up with Fish Tacos.
Fortunately Cod was on sale here and I love cod in my fish tacos, so it was a win-win. The kids gave this dinner a total ‘THUMBS UP’ for dad’s birthday. This recipe is great for Game Day ‘as is’ or as part of a taco bar for your guests.
Here’s our recipe to share;
Fish Tacos by Jodie Fitz
2 lbs. cod (boneless filets)
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
Cut the cod into small pieces; I cut mine into thin strips.
Mix the bread crumbs, paprika, cumin, onion powder, salt, white pepper, garlic powder & chili powder together in a low dish.
Place the cod into the bread crumbs and completely cover them until they are coated well.
Heat a few tablespoons of canola oil in a frying pan and cook the fish until it’s white & flaky flipping the pieces as they cook.
