Baha Fish Tacos

So does that even sound appetizing to you? It really doesn't to me, but to my surprise, fish tacos are quite tasty. The reason I have such an aversion to the name, is that when I was 8 weeks pregnant with my first son, I couldn't stand the thought or mention of fish. We were on vacation in San Diego, and fish tacos are very popular there, so I saw it everywhere. And my husband wasn't any help, because he took every chance he could to say fish tacos and even eat them so that I would cringe. Anyway, I have lost my aversion to the thought of fish tacos because my husband loves them so dearly, and even made some the other night. I have to say, they were pretty good. It is basically my easy baha fish recipe with homemade tortillas, really easy. And, if you haven't made homemade tortillas yet, you should. They are so yummy and not very hard at all to make. I promise!

Baha Fish Tacos

4 fillets of white fish (tilapia is our favorite)
garlic powder
2 TBSP butter
1 can black beans
guacamole (recipe here)
salsa of your choice or chopped tomatoes
homemade tortillas (or store-bought)

Season both sides of all fillets with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. I didn't measure this. I just sprinkled the spices over the fish. Melt butter in skillet on medium-high heat. Cook fish in butter, turning once. When fish can flake easily, it is ready. While fish is cooking, warm beans on stove top. I cook mine in the juice that is in the can. If you're making your own guacamole, make it at this time too. Place a tortilla on a plate and top with a couple of spoonfuls of beans, no juice. Place 2 strips of fish on top of the beans. Next, place a dollop or two of guacamole on top of the fish, and then finally top the guacamole with a spoonful or two of salsa or fresh tomatoes and shredded cheese. You could really top it with anything you like. Easy, healthy, and delicious!
