Look out Celeste, David, Katherine, and everyone...my poll on Ennis's stone biscuits comes next!!

After the fish tacos on Saturday, stone biscuits actually might taste good! ;)

I'm scared of dinner tomorrow night... :o

I just thought I would let you all know that fish tacos are actually pretty good! :)

We lightly fried some catfish strips and put them in taco shells with some lettuce and tomatoes. I also put tartar sauce on one of them, and hot sauce on the other one.

It was really good. We are going to have fish tacos again next week! :D

God, I can't BELIEVE I like fish tacos! :o

That's great to hear. There's one thing tho. Re-read the part in the recipe where it says, don't even THINK about substituting lettuce for cabbage!!
May 2019 be better for us all.

I didn't even see that recipe! Uh-oh! Our fish tacos weren't anything like that! ???

Well, I am going to copy down that recipe and use it next weekend.

Even though I didn't use that recipe, can I still say I've had fish tacos now, or no?

Absolutely. Variations on the theme still count.

I'm so glad to hear you liked them, David. You would eat them in a box and you would eat them with a fox and you would eat them on a plane and you would eat them in the rain and ...*

Hehe. I love Dr. Seuss. But I wonder if he ever ate a fish taco? Green eggs and ham maybe. :)

Just a few tips here...for best results, whip up the batter a few hours before, or even the night before. Then it is all fluffy and bubbly when you need to use it. For Celeste's benefit, I would like to say that I have actually made these tacos with tofu instead of fish and you can hardly tell the difference! Okay, now back to carnivorousness. I have found that both peanut oil and vegetable oil work just as well for frying the fish. But don't re-use the oil; that doesn't give you optimum results! Corn tortillas work better than wheat and cabbage better than lettuce. I like both hot sauce and tartar sauce or mayo, and for the perfect coupe de grace on top, a squeeze of lime!!

That sounds perfect. You are the master. And maybe a sprinkling of cilantro?

Thanks Front-Ranger, I am  going to make fish tacos again this weekend, and I WILL do it correctly this time! :)

And I don't even like fish. NOBODY will EVER talk me into eating Nieuwe Haring again though. The tail was sticking out of my mouth! :P They didn't cut it up. I guess you have to ask them to do it first. :(
