Fish Taco Recipe

I love sharing recipes. Here's a good one that I love to make. Hope you enjoy also.

Ingredients For Taco

Talapia Fish - Not the breaded kind - Cook enough - I usually cook 2lbs
Corn tortillas - not the crunchy kind
Flour Tortillas
Cabbage - Use instead of lettuce - shredded
Mayo - 1/2 cup
Chipotle Tabasco Hot Sauce
Chile Powder
Garlic Powder

Picture to above is of the Pico De Gio

Ingredients for Pico De Gio

Chop all these ingredients by hand - makes for a better Pico that doing in a blender or chopper.
Roma Tomatoes - about 8 to 10 of them
Red Onion - bout 1/2 of it
Jalapeno - 3 of them deseeded
Banana Pepper - 1 deseeded
Cilantro - a good handful
Garlic - the kind in a jar or you can chop fresh. I like it garlicky so I put alot
Apple Cider Vinegar - about 1/4 cup
Salt and Pepper - to taste

Sprinkle Chile and garlic powder on top of talapia and place on grill that has been lined with foil. Be sure to spray foil with cooking spray 1st. Cook till fish is done. Don't over cook or else it will be hard to remove from the foil (yep I've done this).

Mix mayo and chipotle hot sauce together. Mix enough hot sauce in until it turns almost a salmon color. This will be somewhat thin. Think I may try sour cream next go around.

Heat the flour and corn tortillas in a frying pan (I use cooking oil spray on them, but do what you like) and place in a tortilla warmer until you get the amount you want. You will use two shells per taco. The flour on the outside and then the corn one then spread some of the mayo sauce on top and then top with fish. Add shredded cabbage then top with Pico.

Well, I hope you all enjoy!

Laundry Soap Anyone??

Just listed my laundry soap on Zibbet. http://www.zibbet.com/NanneysCreek/artwork?artworkId=98471 I'm running a giveaway for a free trial size. So, become follower of my blog and I will randomly pick one lucky winner at the end of August. Go to www.zibbet.com/nanneyscreek for product details.

What soap of yours do you just absolutely hate? I was testing out a piece of guttering and some round pvc tubes and this is what I got. Needless to say, I don't like it. Just wasn't that image I had in my mind. Oh well, back to the drawing board as they say. I do so love all those creative soap makers out there in the soaping world who are so creative. Love this scent tho, Fresh Ginger Lime. So Crisp and Clean smelling. So all you soapers out there send me your pic of that soap you just hate and I'll post. Send to nanneyscreekbathandbody@yahoo.com.

It has been hard getting things back up and running after about a year hiatus. Lost all my soaping and butter recipes about a year ago, due to a dang computer virus that I actually bought. The virus I bought represented themselves as Microsoft. What a dummy I was. Needless to say, it's like starting over from square one. Also I work full time as a nurse in a local busy ER. Makes for a busy schedule, but no matter. I love what I do.
