Blackened Red Fish Tacos

Blackened Red Fish Tacos: Tacos are an easy fix, and are delectable when served with some salsa and guacamole salad. If you cannot find redfish, any light white fleshed fish like tilapia will work. Make sure the pan is hot and let the fish blacken otherwise the fish may stick to the pan if you try to turn too early.

Blackened Redfish Tacos

  • 2, 6-8oz redfish fillets
  • Emeril’s Creole Seasoning
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Flour tortillas
  • ½ cup shredded lettuce
  • ½ cup diced tomatoes
  • Salsa (see recipe)
  • Guacamole Salad (see recipe)

Soak the redfish fillets in the buttermilk for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Remove and pat dry. Season both sides with Emeril’s Creole Seasoning. Heat the cast iron skillet with a little oil until smoking. Place the fillets on the skillet cooking 2-4 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the fillets. Remove the fillets and place ½ fillet on lettuce in a tortilla and dress with tomatoes, salsa ad guacamole salad. Makes 4 tacos.

Healthy Byte:  Seafood is one of the healthiest foods around.  Fish in general provide a large range of health benefits.  It is a food that is high in protein and low calories. Most fish are naturally low in pro-inflammatory omega-6 fats. Fish such as Wild Salmon are high in beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. White fleshed fish are lower in fat than any other source of animal protein. They contain many beneficial vitamins and minerals. They are a great source of iodine, iron and choline.  More nutrients are retained in fish that is baked or broiled rather than processed and fried. It is not just brain food or heart food,  but recommended for overall good health as well.
