Fish Tacos: An Entire Dinner

This was a really fun meal to prepare. Yaffi Lvova came to visit from Arizona.

The funny part of this dinner came about because the night I made this dinner for my family, I was going out to eat with a bunch of my siblings for my sister Ayelet’s birthday. The last few times I was supposed to go out for a dairy dinner, by mistake I ate a few bites of meat just before.

I dunno, that’s just happened to me too many times. Because we planned to go out for dairy (at Sunflower Cafe, which was actually beyond delicious), I decided to make a parve dinner to make sure I didn’t accidentally eat meat.

And this beautiful dish is what came about.

If you live close to the Five Towns, I’m assuming you have been to Cork and Slice. They make an amazing fish taco, and here’s where I was going with this. As Yaffi and I built this dish, I made corn salad, guacamole and Israeli salad to go in the taco. But so many things would pair well with this. Red or white cabbage would be amazing. A bit of caesar salad with fresh parmesan would also be delicious and take the taco in a totally different, creamy direction. My tomato jalapeno salad would also do amazing here. Its versatile and definitely restaurant-quality.
