I realized I have been seriously lagging on the food posts, so my husband and I decided to cook all weekend and if all goes to plan, we'll be continuing the homemade meals throughout the week. On Saturday, we decided to make some yummy fish tacos. We went to Santa Monica Seafood to pick up some fishies and made some seriously amazing tacos!
My adorable new measuring cups! Thanks Laurie!
♥ one egg yolk
♥ 1/8 tsp sugar
♥ 1 garlic clove
♥ 2 tsp lemon juice
♥ 3/4 - 1 cup Grapeseed Oil
♥ salt and pepper to taste
♥ wasabi paste to taste
♥ 1 tsp soy sauce
♥ this was seriously the most painful recipe I've ever made. Making your own aioli can be really finicky, and I had to make two batches before I could finally do a taste test without grimacing. After a failed attempt on my own, I pretty much just followed this video and it worked out fine. This wasabi aioli was awesome on the fish tacos!
Breaded Sturgeon Tacos (makes roughly 2-3 tacos)
♥ Panko Bread crumbs
♥ garlic and herbs salt
♥1/2 pound sturgeon cut into strips
♥ grapeseed oil or cooking spray
♥ pour panko crumbs into a baking dish or bowl. Mix in the salt and herbs to the crumbs, then add the sturgeon and cover each piece with the panko mixture. Add grapeseed oil to a frying pan or cover with cooking spray and cook the sturgeon about 3 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of the fish.
Teriyaki Salmon Tacos (makes roughly 2-3 tacos)
♥ Soy Vay Island Teriyaki Sauce
♥ 1/2 pound fresh coho salmon cut into strips
♥ pour teriyaki sauce into a dish or bowl and marinate the salmon for at least 5 minutes. Cook salmon in a pan for about three minutes each side.
Garnishes for the Tacos (this is up to you, be creative)
♥ chopped tomatoes
♥ chopped fresh onions
♥ sauteed onions
♥ chopped dill
♥ chopped shiso
♥ hot sauce
♥ corn tortillas
