Hey everyone, hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Mine went from totally awesome to totally awful! I'll share the details tomorrow,
it would have been my best Craigslist find ever! : ( So sad!
So I decided to eat, if you follow me on Instagram you saw I made one of
our favorite summer dinners, Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream (5 Star Rating) and
Grilled Corn with Spicy Butter and Lime.
Sorry for the bad photo, it was getting dark outside by the time we ate.
Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream - recipe here
I found the fish taco recipe years ago on Food Network, but I tweak it a bit because we
like spicy! The original recipe by Ellie Krieger is here, I like to make these changes:
1 - I use Tilapia loins from Costco and saute them in a non-stick pan.
2 - Chipotle Cream - I use Light Sour Cream in place of nonfat yogurt and add about
3T lime juice, and NO mayo.
3 - 4 tablespoons instead of 2 teaspoons chipotle pepper (pureed in food processor).
I buy a 7 oz. can of Cipotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce and puree it in my food processor
and freeze it for use as needed.
4 - I use a package of shredded slaw mix for the cabbage
5 - I don't use any corn kernels since I like to serve it with Grilled corn.
6 - We like avocado slices on ours.
The ideal side dish is this spicy, tangy grilled corn on the cob. You boil it first, so it just
needs a quick few minutes on the grill.
BBQ Corn with Mexican Spicy Butter and Lime - Recipe here
I found this recipe by Eat Drink Daily on Pinterest and followed it exactly.
It called for 70 grams of butter I used about 4 tablespoons for 4 ears of corn. If you
sample the spicy butter on its own the lime is pretty strong, but when brushed on the
corn it blends perfectly. Enjoy!
What's your favorite summer dinner?
