Yup, last night it was fish tacos. This recipe is on the Food Network site. Now, I had to go to World Market to find some of the spices but I was successful and they are much more reasonably priced than the grocery store, if you can find them. You will find out, (if you don't already know) that I am a Food Network fanatic. That is about all I watch on TV...what else is there?!?
This meal was inspired by going to http://www.foodnetwork.com/. I'm always checking out recipes that I've seen on various programs. If you remember at the end of last season's "The Next Food Network Star", Melissa and Jeffrey were the finalists. I will tell you that I personally voted for Melissa and have enjoyed preparing some of her dishes and enjoy listening to her helpful hints. However, Jeffrey also had a great point of view on food and cooks up some fabulous food. Well, apparently the Food Network felt that he had merit and they have given him some little video spots on their web site. Of course, I had to watch them and I have planned to make every single dish he showed. You can watch these by going to their web page and then searching Jeffrey Saad and clicking on his videos and you can also get the recipe.
My interpretation of his fish taco recipe differs just slightly. I seldom do a recipe exactly how it is written. I'll explain what I did differently and show you some step by step pictures of the dish.
I did use tillapia as the recipe suggested. It is such a nice mild white fish and goes well with the spicy mole sauce. I did NOT use the whole 1/2 cup of chili paste. I only used 1/3 cup. If you like it hot, go for the whole amount. After the fish is cooked and set aside then you make the mole sauce.
