I love eating at my son's house. I love to taste 'real' Mexican food. Real home-cooked Mexican food. It's so different from eating at a restaurant. It's hard to explain, but it just is.
...watching Novellas on the Spanish channel. (She told me the only way to learn to speak Spanish is immersion, so I watched novellas (soap operas) with her on the Spanish Channel. It was fun--but now I'm depressed as I had to leave before I knew the fate Juan Carlos!! DANG IT!! ~grins~ )
Mara (my DIL) made fish tacos one night--(they were so awesome!!) (I just had to take a photo)
And when I got home I made them for the Handyman--(I did a pretty good job I think, recreating a home-cooked Mexican meal)
They look almost EXACTLY like her's, don't they? They tasted pretty good too. So, it paid off , following her around like that! (hopefully it didn't creep her out too much---having her mother in law looking over her shoulder all the time)
As I said, I followed Mara closely around the kitchen and I hastily wrote this down in my notebook after we ate. There is no formal recipe---you just do it. She probably learned from watching her mom in the kitchen...the secret of many great home cooks.
(as scribbled down by me)
Tilapia cut into strips--squirt with lime juice and sprinkle with lemon pepper and fish seasoning.
Dredge is seasoned flour (lemon pepper and fish seasoning) and fry
chop and mix together and add on top of fish in a warm corn tortilla, spread with Mexican sour cream.
blend all together (she did it in a blender and was a lot thinner, more like a sauce. It was really good. Mine was more chunky)
Drizzle on top of the taco.
Squirt with lime and eat.
If you want you can add hot sauce.
