Fish tacos were on the docket tonight. You see, I do my menu planning a week in advance and sometimes I’m just not feeling what I originally planned. Tonight was one of those nights, but since I had bought the fish and needed to cook it up while it was fresh, I went with a simple breaded recipe. I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but I did a quick google search for breaded fish to see if anything surprising popped up. The usual suspects came up — baked and breaded, breaded and fried, and the like. I had already decided at the gym that I had earned at least a pan-fry instead of baking, and I stumbled upon a recipe on Ella Says Opa! that incorporated some herbs. Perfect.
I must say, this fish was the bomb. Ready in 10 minutes flat, crispy, flaky, pretty much exactly what I wanted. I served it along with some rice pilaf (total comfort food for me) and an apple-pecan salad with goat cheese. Yum!
