Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Cook Time: 10 min.
Jalapeño peppers, chile powder, and cumin are the secret to these spicy fish tacos.

Ingredients

  • 4 Barramundi fillets (cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 2 Tbs chile powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 medium yellow onion (cut into medium slices)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 jalapeño peppers (cut into medium slices)
  • 2 Tbs peanut oil
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 8-12 yellow corn tortillas (peanut oil as needed for tortillas)
  • 1 cup monterey jack and/or mild cheddar cheese (grated)

Directions

  • Sear veggies using half the oil in a heavy skillet over medium-hi heat for about 4 minutes (softened but not wilted). Remove from pan.
  • Add remainder of oil to pan and add fish, skin side down. Cook about 2 minutes. Add spices and stir fish once with a spatula, trying not to break it too much. Cook one additional minute.
  • Add veggies to the fish, gently mix and remove from heat.
  • In a clean pan over low heat put a few drops of oil, add a tortilla and gently move around with fingers, flip and repeat, until warmed and softened. About 1 minute. Stack warmed tortillas on a plate and cover with clean dish towel to keep warm.
  • Serve at once. Allow diners to spoon fish into tacos and add cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, etc., as desired. Eat with hands.
