Default Tilapia Tacos and Homemade Salsa Verde

Thanks to Tonybel for helping get this salsa right. Deviated a bit by adding extra cilantro. Definitely could have taken more heat, but excellent none the less. Wife was raving, and already rearranged dinner plans this week to have me cook more fish and use the salsa again! :-) Highest compliment I can ever hear.

Also....please correct me if this is not a "salsa". Not sure if its technically salsa verde or something else. Delicious, whatever it's technically called.

Started with fresh ingredients....plus some cilantro and veg oil not shown. S&P to taste.




Fish was beautiful golden brown. A bit spicy with blackened seasoning. Not a great pic in the fish cage, but you get the point.


My tacos with a little bit of sour cream and cheese.


My wife's with just fish and salsa.


Thanks for looking.

Blackened Redfish Magic. Done by Chef Paul Prudhomme??? Not sure if I should know that name, but it's awesome seasoning, and I never cook fish without it on there. Coulda grilled it a little hotter for some blackened crispy edges, but grill was cruising at about 250-300 and the fish basket doesnt let me close the lid. No biggie. still delicious.

Simple...steal it from Tonybel! ha

It was just 2 jalapenos (shoulda done 3 like he said), 1 pablano...both seeded but seeds = more heat if you want it. 4 tomatillos, 1/2 red onion, 1/2 bunch of cilantro, green onions, 4 cloves of garlic. Salt to flavor. 1/4 cup veg oil.

Just charred everything to skin peppers and add some smoke to it all. I didnt use wood but sure most would. It's somewhere between a solid and a liquid, and delicious all around. Got crazy week at work but planning to sneak in another fish cook asap so the salsa doesnt go bad.

Looking good man. I usually make a thinner green sauce, mix in some stock. Gonna have to try this thick version out.

Thanks. Never considered stock. It was a nice consistency. if you turned a spoon of it sideways it would hold for a second but eventually slide off. I think the amount of fresh cilantro was the real thickening agent. Everything else was grilled and soft. Cilantro still had crisp in it. Didn't expect this great of a result on first run.
