Shrimp Tacos

Who doesn’t love a shrimp taco? I certainly love tacos of any kind, and these were no exception. I used the shrimp frying recipe/method described in my friend Meaghan’s post here, which worked perfectly. It really does make a difference to batter the shrimp. I made my own slaw, very similar to the one I describe here, with chopped red cabbage, chilies, coriander, fish sauce, and a pinch of sugar. Topped it off with a little bit of lime mayo and some chopped spring onions, and corn tortillas. To me these reach near perfection — a great combination of salt, heat, crunch, and acid — and are somehow very refreshing for these incredibly hot evenings we’ve been having in London.

Fish Tacos

Greetings from sunny and hot Nova Scotia. I am playing catch up on a few posts I’ve had sitting in drafts for a few weeks now.

Ever since my visit to Toronto’s Grand Electric in May, I’ve been craving fish tacos again. I finally decided to give homemade ones a go, and I am so glad I did because these were easy to make and will become a new staple. I am hoping to recreate them here in Nova Scotia.

I made up my own recipe but based it loosely on a combination of these three from Wit and DelightFood52, and delicious magazine. The components were:

  • Fish – I used North Sea haddock, fried in butter with a little sea salt
  • Guacamole – avocadoes, lime juice, salt, tomato, garlic
  • Slaw – red cabbage, red onion, coriander, fish sauce, sugar
  • Tortillas
  • Sauce – plain Greek yogurt, chopped coriander, garlic, salt

I didn’t measure anything, just mixed it up as I went along. These were delicious and will be even better with local NS haddock!
