I have a few remaining photos to share from the end of our trip, but in the mean time, I wanted to share the photos from the awesome Virtual Dinner Party we had with 6 guests a few weeks ago.
A few days before our party, we gathered ingredients for blackened fish tacos. The 6 guests came from 3 houses, so everyone had slightly different twists to their tacos. I used a frozen white fish from Trader Joe's, defrosted and rubbed with a combo of blackening spices.
Using this recipe as inspiration, we blackened then pan-seared the fish, caramelized red onions, mixed up a cilantro-lime crema to go on top, and put together some amazing tacos! These are easy and will be making frequent appearances on our weekly menus in the future.
Blackening seasoning: cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper
Cilantro-lime crema: plain Greek yogurt, cilantro, salt, lime zest, squeeze of lime
Tortillas: corn tortillas are traditional, but I picked up some "truly handmade flour tortillas" from Trader Joe's, and they were delicious! And one day, I will make tortillas from scratch.
Additional toppings: avocado, cheese, cilantro, salsa, corn salsa, beans, jalapenos, and a squeeze of lime.
An IPA or pale ale is a great match.
Thanks to my cohosts for a great dinner!
