fish tacos & mango slaw

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Almost as common "margarita saturday" -- "fish taco" day has become a weekly occurance ever since our freeze was blessed with twenty pounds of mahi mahi --coastal living at its finest.  

My favorite way to eat them: topped with my husbands homemade mango slaw, cotija cheese*, a drizzle of crema*, and fresh cilantro.  Add a corona and you have yourself tropical perfection and if want to make it extra fun-- a fresh margarita pairs even better!

Mango slaw
One container or bag of cabbage mix{purple&green}roughly chopped, then add one cut up mango, the juice of 3 limes, 3 tablespoons of sugar, a handful of cilantro, and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Mix all together & enjoy topped on fish tacos.

*cotija cheese may be hard to find-- while I can almost always count on Whole Foods to have it, I have never been able to find it anywhere else.  As for the "crema", this might not be the real way to make it, but I just whisk 3 tablespoons of sour cream with 2 tablespoons of cream{or milk}.
