Fish tacos

I know I have shared my tortilla recipe, but I thought I would share it again. I made them yesterday and used them for grilled fish tacos with a corn and basil salsa. Yum.

-the individual doughs

2 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 C olive oil
1 C warm water

You may need to add more flour, I did.

Mix together, divide into balls...let rest for 15 minutes...roll out...cook in pan over medium high heat..enjoy.

Rolling them out

Cooking in a frying pan

The tilapia marinating in a little olive oil, rice vinegar, lime juice, garlic and basil. Also a pinch of salt and pepper.

The corn salsa. Organic corn, fresh tomato, scallions, lime juice, fresh basil, salt and cayenne pepper. I mean look at the colors on this! This makes me so happy. :)

The finished dish...with a side of brown rice for supper.

It was so fresh and healthy. Delicious.

I just grilled the fish on my BBQ grill but you can pan fry, oven bake...etc.

Summer squash fries

Well summer is here, the time for an abundance of fresh goodness from the farmers market, home gardens, CSAS or wherever you get your produce.

I just got a huge bag of summer yellow squash from a friend and wanted to make something a little different.

So, while on a Facebook the other night I came across zucchini fries my friend Pam had posted. Thanks Pam!!! They looked so good. So I thought I would try mine with the summer squash since I have an abundance. She said her recipe was from weight watchers if anyone wants to check that out. I just kinda winged it and made it my own.

I posted these yesterday on Facebook and got many comments for the recipe so here it is.

Preheat oven to 475 degrees

Any kind of squash you prefer cut into strips aka fries
Whole wheat flour. I used whole white wheat.
2 to 3 egg whites
Panko can get near the regular breadcrumbs.
Parmesan cheese
Salt,pepper, garlic powder to taste.
Mix about 1/4 c good Parmesan cheese in the Panko along with your seasonings.

Dredge the squash in the flour then in the egg whites then in the Panko. (I buy the plain Panko and put seasonings in that, if yours is seasoned then you are good to go.).

Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 475 for 25 -30 minutes or until golden brown.

Thats it. These were really crispy from the Panko.
