Seafood Tacos!
It was hot today and we worked in the yard all morning. We were looking for something light and different for dinner. I had mentioned that there was a sale on tilapia at the grocery store so the illustrator mentioned that we try making fish tacos. First of all, I have never had a fish taco so I have no frame of reference. Second of all, I like some fish, but I had never tried tilapia before. So, I was excited to try something new, but worried that dinner was going to take a ton of time and not be too good. Besides, the kids either like fish or don't. You never know what kind of day it will be for them! So, shrimp was on sale too!! Big score. I know they like shrimp (as do I), so it would be a win win situation all around! I was very surprised to see how quick and easy this was. I cooked the shrimp and tilapia on the George Forman Lean Mean Grilling Machine, which took no time at all. Picked up a few odds and ends (shredded cabbage) at the store while I was there and used some things we had on hand(tortillas and kick ass corn salsa from Trader Joe's - you have to try it)! It was a great meal that was quick and easy! Above all, it was loved by everyone!

Fish/Shrimp Tacos
1 lb peeled shrimp
1 lb talapia
salt and pepper to taste
bagged shredded cabbage
fajita flour tortillas

Preheat grill pan. Coat pan with cooking spray. Cook shrimp until pink and slightly firm. Remove from pan. Coat pan with cooking spray. Place tilapia in pan cook 2-3 minutes on each side until slightly firm. Remove from pan. Assemble taco by placing 1/4 cup of cabbage on the flour tortilla, 3oz. of shrimp or tilapia (or both as M did) and 2 tsp. salsa. good!
