Fish Tacos with Lime-Cilantro Crema

It’s funny how you can go years, even decades, thinking that you don’t like a certain food only to find you can’t get enough of it when you’re older. Fish tacos is one of those foods for me. They pack a ton of flavor but are a healthier option than other proteins (as long as the fish isn’t fried, that is). I also love how quickly you can cook them up, perfect for a weeknight dinner! Cooking Light always has the best taco recipes so I naturally went in search of a fish taco recipe there.

To make it a quick meal, you could also just marinate the meat overnight.   Ingredients for the tacos: 1/3 cup sugar 5 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce 1 1/2 tablespoons chile paste (such as sambal oelek) the juice of 2 limes 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil 4 garlic cloves, minced 12 ounces flank steak, sliced against the grain into thin strips Salt, to taste Cooking spray 8 (6-inch) tortillas 3 tablespoons sliced green onions   Ingredients for the cabbage: 1 head of napa cabbage, chopped 2 garlic cloves, crushed 1/2 cup rice vinegar 2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce 1 tablespoon sugar 2 teaspoons chile paste Combine … Continue reading
