We’re gearing up for the long weekend and couldn’t be more excited—according to weather.com, we have a sunny one coming our way!
Since we live in the land of 10,000 lakes, but also have our share of brutally cold winters, we Minnesotans really take advantage of being out on the water whenever we get the chance—whether it be boating, swimming, fishing, or just lounging on the beach, you’ll know where to find us on the Fourth of July. And of course, just like any celebration, good food is a must. Our go-to summer meal? Fish tacos! If we’re lucky, we catch the fish ourselves. Check out our recipe below:
1 tbsp/15mL Watkins Citrus Cilantro Grapeseed Oil
3 tbsp/45mL Lime juice
3/4 tsp Watkins Garlic Powder
3/4 tsp Watkins Cumin
1/2 tsp Watkins Chili Powder
1/4 tsp Watkins Oregano
1/4 tsp Salt
1 pound tilapia, cod, or halibut fillets
1 Package tortillas
Chopped lettuce, tomatoes, and onions
Grated queso fresco or Feta cheese
Combine spices in a small bowl. Rub both sides of fish with spice mixture and squeeze with lime juice. Allow the fish to marinate for at least 30 minutes. While the fish is marinating, prepare all the necessary toppings and set aside. Cook fish in a frying pan over medium heat with Watkins Citrus Cilantro Oil. Cook until fish is cooked through and tender, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Assemble tacos and enjoy!
