It is Spring in Miami. It is like everyone puts on a fresh pair of contacts each morning. The air is free of humidity. It is clearer, crisper, and what everyone loves about South Florida this time of year.
On Sunday I made fish tacos for dinner. I found another Trader Joe's staple, their corn taco shells. I like the texture of a corn soft tortilla. Here they are in case you want to try -
Onto the tacos. I sauteed some white fish in a pan with cumin, salt and pepper, served with shredded cabbage, black refried beans (another pantry staple in our house), feta crumbles, and a fresh mango salsa. I winged the salsa recipe, it turned out quite nicely. I thought I would share -
2 mangos - not too firm, not to ripe, just right if you can...diced into 1/2 inch cubes
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced into small pieces
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and diced into small pieces
1/2 red onion, diced into small as you can get pieces
1/2 cup cilantro chopped and destemed
salt to taste
This made a lot. I have been eating it as a salad dressing on a fish taco salad of sorts for lunch yesterday and today. You could half this recipe if it was for two people and still have leftovers for sure.
