What to cook for my wife?
Posted on January 10, 2013
Its 2013 and we made it back from Costa Rica!
While in Costa Rica we never really ate seafood. We stayed at one of those mega all-inclusive resorts which I personally do not care for…but the company and friends we bring/ meet along the way make the trips epic. My brother and I are actually working on a screenplay/ movie idea about the comical nature of these resorts called “The All-inclusives: When We’re 30” (more on that later 🙂
So when we got back I had a craving for fish tacos. I did not realize how easy these really are to prepare and cheap..from Whole Foods none the less 🙂
- 1 beef steak tomato
- 1 kiwi (trust me)
- 1 jalepeno
- 1 bushel of cilantro
- 1 shallot
- 1 avacado
I used a true cod filet.
Cutting of the ingredients is simple so I will focus on the prep of the fish.
I lightly seasoned the fish with salt, pepper, paprika and pinch of cayenne.
Next I heated up a pan and lightly buttered the bottom. Then I firmly placed the fish in the hot pan and pressed it down. I added a couple pats of butter and let cook for 2.5/3 minutes per side. Note* the filet was not that thick…so really a judgement call on yours how long to cook.
I cut the fish and plated on a small corn tortilla (heated on gas range) paired with a fat corona.
Welcome to 2013!
The title of this post is “What to cook for my wife,” because I really wanted to cook something for her and calling it Fish Tacos just felt weird.
