Picky Eater Challenge: DAY TEN

Take the challenge and try fish as a healthy addition to taco night!

For today’s challenge…

Description

In my kitchen, tacos are like pasta. Flexible. This recipe is just one of a hundred different ways you can fix them. Most families enjoy the ease and simplicity of a good taco night. Buy a thick piece of fish and cut it into uniform pieces that will cook evenly, without dry- ing out. You can use the DIY Corn Tortillas on pages 105–6 or store-bought tortillas.


Ingredients

Scale
  • for the fish
  • 11⁄4 pounds skinless fish fillets (any variety), 1 inch thick
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper 1⁄2 teaspoon sweet paprika 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • for the beans
  • Two 15-ounce cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sweet paprika 1⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • for the tacos
  • 8 corn tortillas, 6-inch size

Instructions

  1. for the fish
  2. 1. Rinse the fish fillets and pat dry. Season with the salt, pepper, and paprika.
  3. 2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Once the oil sizzles, add the fish and cook for 2 minutes or so per side, depending on thickness; be careful not to overcook the fish.
