What I Ate Today: Pescatarian

This food diary is for my pescatarians –  those of you who do not eat meat, but enjoy eating fish. If you have switched over to a healthier lifestyle, this post is also for you.

Just looking for more ways to cook fish? This is for you too.

Fish and chips is a London favorite, and a dish that is simple and easy to make. This Tuesday, we’re making fish tacos with a side of seasoned potato wedges.

Heres’s how:

To start off with, you will want to prep and cook your potato wedges first because they will take the longest to cook. I washed and cut my red potatoes in half, and then cut them into 3 wedges for each half. Next, I seasoned the potatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper and parsley and placed them in the preheated oven at 425 F. The potatoes cooked for 45 minutes until they were nice and brown.

You can use any type of potato you like for your potato wedges.

 

 

Next, you will want to wash and cut your favorite veggies to add to your taco. I chopped yellow onions and grape tomatoes, and sauteed them together with salt, pepper and olive oil.

For my fish, I washed and seasoned tilapia fish, and cooked it over med-high heat for about 4 minutes on each side. You can choose to cook your fish over the stove or bake it in the oven.

Once you have your fish and veggies cooked, you can heat up your tortillas.

Now there are several different ways to heat up tortillas. If you have an open top gas stove, you can place your tortilla right over the stove flame for a few seconds, and the tortilla will get nice and soft. An alternative is to warm the tortilla up in the microwave with a damp paper towel over it. I chose another way, which was to warm the tortilla up in the microwave in a mug glass for about 15 seconds. This warms the tortilla and also gives it shape for your taco.

Choose whichever way works best for you!

And there you have it, fish & chips! All I added was some lettuce and carrots on top of my tacos, so you can add whatever ingredients you like the best. Once your potatoes are done cooking in the oven, you can remove them and enjoy them with your meal.

This is a pretty simple way to make fish tacos so I hope you will try it out and enjoy it.
