From the "too-good-not-to-share" category! We adapted this most amazing recipe from allrecipes.com. Since we are too lazy to batter and fry our own fish, we pick up some fillets from the fish place and break them into taco-sized pieces. We also prefer flour tortillas to corn (most of us, anyway.) To save even more time, a bag of slaw mix from the grocery store is ideal for the topping, and is more colorful as well. Word to the wise: a full teaspoon of cayenne makes the sauce very, very spicy! For the more timid, a 1/4 teaspoon is plenty. Here's our amended recipe, with a link to the original below:
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 lime, juiced
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 teaspoon minced capers
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, or to taste
Flour or corn tortillas
½ head of cabbage, chopped, or slaw mix
Pico de Gallo, optional
In a medium bowl, mix together yogurt and mayonnaise. Gradually stir in fresh lime juice until consistency is slightly runny. Season with jalapeno, capers, oregano, cumin, dill, and cayenne.
To serve, place fried fish in a tortilla and top with shredded cabbage and white sauce.
Top with cilantro and pico if desired.
