Ahoy, Captain TJ!
But, alas, the heart wants what the heart wants, and today the heart (meaning my wife) wanted fish tacos. Without sufficient time to properly defrost any of the petrified frozen fish offerings, I turned to my only other option: fresh (I hoped) marinated fish in the meat case. To my surprise,the chili garlic tilapia fit the taco bill perfectly! I'm normally not a huge tilapia fan, but in this case the sturdy texture and mild flavor were just right. I broiled the daylights out of the fillets (almost blackened, really) and they were perfect with shredded cabbage and a sour cream, cumin, hot sauce, lime condiment that I whipped up for the occasion. I had to look elsewhere for the corn tortillas (listening, TJ's?) - which are a must for the taco experience, but why pick nits? The evening was a success!
