Do you like how I used "man up" to describe a guy cooking? When Jack was receiving speech therapy at 2, the lady who worked with him gave him a magnetic board where a mom was in the kitchen cooking. Jack shook his head vehemently and spoke a rare sentence:
"NOOOOO. No mommy der. DADDY goes der."
He then plucked the mommy magnet from the kitchen and threw her across the room, replacing her with the male version.
Anyway, Joe scoured the internet for the best fish taco recipes and by God, he did it:
|Yes - those would be the same Target plates I bought when I moved out at 22. I haven't broken a single one.|
The combination of the spicy fish, creamy avocado, and crunchy cabbage was perfection. The lime helped add some zestiness, and a weird orange sauce put the whole thing right over the top.
Joe has promised to make these on a weekly basis until we eventually get sick of them.
Or die of scombroid poisoning.
