Fish Tacos!

easy fish tacos

1 lb of fresh or frozen white fish fillets (red snapper, tilapia, cod...)
2 tbs butter
1 tsp Pappy's Seafood Spice
3 tbs. mayonnaise
3 tbs. sour cream
1 tsp. lime juice
1 1/2 cups of shredded cabbage (buy a pre-made bag of coleslaw mix)
8 taco shells or tortillas
Fresh Salsa

1. Thaw fish if necessary. Sprinkle both sides of fish with seafood spice. Melt the butter in a skillet at med. heat. Cook the fish in butter for three minutes on each side (keep it moving so it doesn't stick) or until the fish begins to flake. Break it into bite size pieces. (for hands free cooking – bake the fish in the butter or olive oil for 15 min at 425 ˚).
2. In a medium bowl combine mayo, sour cream, lime juice and 1 tsp of seafood spice. Add cabbage and toss to coat. Add more mayo or sour cream for more moist tacos.
3. Put cabbage and fish into taco shell and top with your favorite fresh salsa.

If you can't find Pappy's Seafood Spice (they sell it at Food4Less in SLO) use a similar seasoning. Pappy's contains : salt, pepper, garlic, onion, celery, cayenne pepper, tarragon, basil, thyme and parsley.

YUM! I made these tonight using Tilapia. They were so good! Kevin and the kids all loved it as well. Thanks Lara!

I'm so glad you liked them! Did you get Pappy's seasoning or did you find something else that worked? It's hard to find Pappy's sometimes, but I haven't found anything else that I've liked yet.

Lara unfortunately, Albertsons had every type of Pappys BUT the seafood kind! Grrrr! I was so bummed out but remembered that my spice rack came with a jar of "seafood seasoning." I tried it and it worked, although I'm anxious to find Pappy's still!
