you would think living in my location good fish is easy to find, but it’s not. i have never really been happy with the lot of fish i have found in my town as well as neighboring ones. i choose to travel about 20 minutes to whole foods. i find their the fish is fresher, doesn’t smell (which fish shouldn’t by the way) and tastes better.

our farmers market, most weeks, has fresh fish out of hampton bays. their fish is 100% wild caught and is amazing. last summer i bought fish every week from them. for some reason, either i haven’t seen them or i have just been concentrating on veg and haven’t noticed (it could of been my kids screaming for dragon tongue beans or ice cream too). we also haven’t been eating tons of fish recently which is weird for us, i just have been on this tremendous veggie kick. it’s like i can not get enough.

everything kind of came together for me the other day. not only did i find great fish, but i also found tomatillo’s. i knew i had to make these tacos. the fish taco is very easy to make. season, fry or bake it, add some salsa and your done. fresh, tasty, and healthy.

for the fish taco:

  1. use any kind of white fish, sprinkle with taco seasonings and fry in a tsp of olive oil till cooked through, about 2-3 minutes on each side.

fresh tomatillo salsa     makes about 1 cup

  1. in a food processor, add all ingredients and pulse till you have reached your desired consistency.
we had lots of fun dressing these. not only did we douse our taco in fresh salsa, we also added fresh garden tomatoes and sunflower sprouts. it was a great light meal for a very hot and busy day.
