Up first, the Fish Tacos...
They were FABULOUS!
I mixed up some chopped tomato, chopped onion, chopped cilantro, salt & pepper, and the juice of one lime, and set it aside. Some avocado would have been good, too, but I didn't have any that day.
The Captain bought 1.3 lbs of Cod fillets at the grocery store.
While he heated up the fresh flour tortillas in the microwave,
I put a dab of butter and some olive oil in a skillet and heated it up on medium-high.
I salted and peppered the fillets and cooked each side about 3 minutes.
Then I sprinkled with some cayenne pepper.
Oh my gosh!
So good and fresh and yummy!
I served it with some Uncle Ben's pre-made wild rice.
Just heated it up in the microwave for 90 seconds in the pkg.
Dinner was done in 10-15 minutes tops!
And then tonight we had...
I love that name.
When I told the Captain what we were having for dinner, he said, "Well, I just had a Bang-Bang Cheese Sandwich!" All day, it was Bang-Bang This and Bang-Bang That.
The chicken was nice and brown and crisp...
But I'd only give it a B-
It needed more seasoning, which surprised us both.
If I make it again, I'll add more salt and hot sauce to the chicken batter,
And more sweet chili sauce and cayenne to the sauce.
I'm telling you, it was BLAND.
The recipe is here: Bang-Bang Chicken
If you make it, you'll need way more Panko crumbs than called for also. I used nearly a whole box on one package of chicken tenders. (I used chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts just because it was easier.)
Tomorrow I'm making some Peanut Butter Granola.
I'll share the recipe if it's as good as I think it'll be.
