(Red) Fish Tacos

It was taco Tuesday at the Weir house last night. Bowen caught a redfish this weekend and we’ve already enjoyed two redfish recipes this week. Monday night I made pan fried red fish with a cream sauce and last night I used the leftovers for my take on fish tacos. My favorite part of this recipe is the asian slaw, I actually saved myself a hefty portion of this salad for lunch today–is it noon yet?


(Red)Fish Tacos


2 red fish filets, dusted lightly in flour and pan-fried

4 corn tortillas, warmed through

asian slaw* recipe below

spicy aioli* recipe below


Asian Slaw

1/2 purple cabbage, rough chopped

2 carrots, peeled or julienned

1 red pepper, julienned

1 T soy sauce

1 T white vinegar

1/2 tsp honey

1 T mayo

1 tsp chili paste or sirrachi

What you do: combine soy, vinegar, honey, mayo and chili paste in a bowl, add vegetables and refrigerate.



Spicy Aioli 

1/2 cup mayo

2 tsp chili paste or sirrachi

1/2 lime, juice

combine above ingredients


To assemble: For the redfish, I lightly dusted in flour then shallow fried in vegetable oil until both sides were golden brown then cooked through in a 350 degree oven. Last night I flaked fish into bite size pieces then re-heated in a skillet with a pat of butter. Place reddish in a warm corn tortilla and top with slaw and sauce. Enjoy this easy supper!
