Thank you to Mia Russo Stern for sharing her beautiful and absolutely delicious Fish Taco Recipe with us. She made her own organic, non-GMO, corn tortillas using a tortilla press. If you don’t have a tortilla press look for a local source, we have an amazing place here in town that makes fresh non-gmo tortillas.
For this recipe Mia collected several different kinds of small citrus, limes, and a small lemon that was different in shape and pink inside, could this be yuzu fruit? The taste is much more subtle than yuzu and was more reminiscent of lemon/grapefruit.
This is a delicious recipe that she suggests serving with crisp cold cocktails of organic peach nectar, champagne, vodka and elderberry liquor.
Fresh Non-GMO Fish Taco Recipe
8 Organic non-gmo corn tortillas
(wrap in foil and warm in a hot oven for about 5-10 minutes)
For the Fish:
1 lb atlantic cod
2 – 3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of organic grass fed butter
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
pinch of sea salt and black pepper
juice from 1/2 lime or yuzu and the zest
1 small box of kale (or any) microgreen/sprouts (about 1 cup)
1 small box of sunflower sprouts (about 1 cup)
1 cup purple cabbage sliced thin
1/2 cup of cilantro, chopped fine
1 jalapeño, diced fine
1/2 red onion sliced into very thin shreds
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 lime, juiced and zested
1 tablespoon maple syrup
pinch of sea salt
1/4 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 cup mayo
juice from 1/2 lime and the zest
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp ancho chili powder
1 cup diced pineapple
1 cup diced mango
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 shallot chopped fine
1/4 cup diced red onion
juice from 1 lime and the zest
pinch of sea salt
1/4 tsp granulated garlic
Preheat your oven to about 400°. It was hot, so we cooked the fish on a baking sheet lined with foil and covered with foil on our BBQ. This worked very well. Wash your fish and check for bones. Pat dry. Lay fish down on lined baking sheet. Drizzle with about 3 tablespoons of olive oil, spread it around with your hands. Cut up about 1-2 tablespoons of grass fed butter and spread that around. Season fish with fresh garlic (minced) salt and pepper, Squeeze citrus juice and zest. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes depending on thickness. Check often for doneness. I like to start my washing all of my sprouts and cilantro. Dry them well.
THE SLAW: In a small bowl add 1 cup of shredded cabbage with 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, shallot, jalapeño and red onion. Season with salt and pepper, maple syrup garlic. Toss and let sit until you are ready to assemble. Chill in fridge
FRUIT SALSA: Add all the ingredients to a bowl and toss, chill in fridge.
MAYO: Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and process until smooth. I like to then transfer to a squeeze bottle so that it’s pretty when I add to my tacos.
Once the fish is cooked, let it cool down for just about 5 minutes. Warm your store bought organic tortillas wrapped in foil for about 5 minutes on the BBQ. Start assembling.
Taco. Fish. Fruit salsa. Cabbage slaw. Kale sprouts. Sunflower Sprouts. (Raw fresh organic corn if you like.) Generous squeeze of compound mayo, maybe a little lime zest and a squeeze.
