What’s for Dinner? Tilapia Tacos with Mango Salsa

If you’ve been following my blog, you already know that I’m sick of nasty, processed, food.  The challenge is cooking something healthy when you’re short on time and don’t want to spend a ton on pricey ingredients.  One of my go-to meals on a night like tonight is Tilapia Tacos.  Tilapia is a thin, mild-flavored fish,  so it cooks quickly, and doesn’t have an overtly fishy flavor.  My husband – who doesn’t like fish – actually requests this meal for dinner. Tilapia is also easier on the budget than most other fishes.  I buy mine at costco in Bellingham (frozen) for about $2 per serving.

 

 

What you need:

8 small tortillas
4 large tilapia fillets
2 cloves of garlic
2 cups of cabbage, finely shredded
2 limes
2 jalapeños, diced

Scallions, finely diced
Olive Oil
sour cream to taste

Optional extras:

1 shot of […]

Thanksgiving: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.

The Menu:
Apple-stuffed Roast Turkey

Scottish Pork Sausage Stuffing

Mashed Potatoes

Green Bean Casserole

Spiced Yams with Toasted Marshmallows

Brussels Sprouts with Prosciutto and Pine Nuts

Pumpkin Pie
 

My first turkey was a landslide victory for Kitchen Divas everywhere.  The white meat stayed juicy for days.  McDreamy and I celebrated with many fist bumps. And then I spent hours cooking the leftover turkey into additional meals that are neatly labeled and stacked in my freezer. This leads me to the good, the bad, and the ugly…
