Homemade Fish Sticks & Pineapple Ketchup

Homemade Fish Sticks and Pineapple KetchupSince we have two recipes in this one, I’m gonna post them one at a time.  Makes it way easier in case you want to make the fish but not the sauce or if you want to make the sauce for something else!  I think the Pineapple Ketchup would go great with homemade french fries.

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 egg

1 lb tilapia fillets, cut into 1″ strips

  4. In another bowl, combine egg and lemon juice, stir with fork.
  5. Sprinkle fish evenly on both sides with salt and pepper.
  6. Dip fish in egg mixture, then into cornflake mixture.  Place on rack and repeat.

Fish Tacos & a #DollopOfDaisy

FishTacosAndDaisySourCreamI have to say, the tacos were great but the Daisy Sour Cream made it awesome!  I love the new squeeze bottles!  So much easier to put it on so that you get just the right amount of sour cream in each bite!  I’m pretty stoked!  I love when new ‘genius’ ways come about and making my food pretty without me having to make a big mess!  I do need to disclose that I got to try the Daisy Squeeze Sour Cream for free as part of a promotion, but my opinions of Daisy Sour Cream are true and honest.  I’ve loved them forever!

Ingredients:

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp pepper

3/8 tsp kosher salt, divided

2 lbs tilapia fillets

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp finely chopped cilantro (I used the squeeze kind found in the produce section)

2 tsp canned chopped green chiles

2 diced, peeled avocados

1/4 c lime juice

12 corn tortillas

Directions:

  1. Preheat broiler to high.FishTacos
  2. Combine first four ingredients with 1/4 tsp salt.  Brush fillets with oil and sprinkle with spice mixture.  Place fillets on baking sheet and broil 6 minutes or until fish is flakey.
  3. Combine remainings salt, cilantro, chiles, lime juice and avocado.  Mash with fork and mix to combine.  Set aside.
  4. Heat tortillas in pan, you want to get a slight char to get the best possible flavor!
