Blackened Red Snapper Fish Tacos @themealprepmanual
This is not a meal prep dish, just something you can make for a quick dinner. Here in the future I plan to do some more recipes (like a couple a month) that aren’t necessarily great meal prep dishes but standard dinners. I used store bought corn tortillas here but whenever I make tacos I try to use instant masa and make the tortilla myself. Store bought corn tortillas are always dry as shit and they ruin everything but they are so much easier, especially if you don’t have a tortilla press.
This dish, like just about any cooking, is not an exact science. I don’t measure stuff when I’m just throwing together meals. Just get close and you’ll be fine. Here’s the recipe. It made 4 Tacos. Roughly 222 Cals each. If you need an exact calorie total, weigh and measure for yourself.
1/2lb red snapper
Blackening seasoning (roughly 1/4-1/2 tsp of chili powder, salt, pepper, cumin, and cayenne mixed together)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp Adobo sauce
1 tbsp Cotija cheese
Corn tortilla shells
1. Preheat the oven to 400F. -Mix the spices together and drizzle olive oil over the fish. Rub seasoning on the flesh. -Bake until it’s done. I don’t know how long. I never time it because it doesn’t matter. It’s done when it flakes
3. Cut up the mango, jalapeño, cilantro, and red onion into a salsa. -Mix the yogurt with adobo sauce and lime juice.
4. Construct Tacos. Top with Cotija cheese, avocado, and salsa
❓What can I swap the snapper for?
❗️Literally anything you want. I’m not stopping you from doing anything. Any other white fish. Crab. Lobster. Salmon. Chicken. Steak. Tofu. Tempeh. Sodium hypochlorite (for legal reasons that’s a joke). Pork. Eggplant. I couldn’t care any less.
❓I don’t like mango.
❗️Okay cool. I don’t care.
❓I can’t find cotija cheese.
❗️Feta would be good, just punchier. Queso fresco too.
❓Can I use flour tortillas?
❗️Why are you like this?
