What do you make with cabbage?
One of the things I love about having a garden is figuring out what i will make with whats ready to eat. I planted some cabbage and its ready to eat, but what do you make with cabbage?
The first thing that came to mind was fish tacos, and that sounded great, so that’s what I made.
- Tilapia – grabbed some from Trader Joes
- Olive Oil
- Jalapeno – from garden (first pepper)
- Chili – from garden (second pepper)
- Tomatoes – from garden
- Cabbage – from garden
- Cajun seasoning
- Chipotle pepper flakes (third pepper)
My peppers and chilies are coming in like crazy in the garden so I’ve been cooking a lot with these.
Simple slice them into long strips like so
cut the little cute baby tomatoes in half
cut the mango into little chunks
I finally got to use my new mandolin slicer on the cabbage
it rocks. Look at that awesomely sliced cabbage
it works maybe a little too well. Be Careful when cleaning those things.
heat up some olive oil in a pan at medium heat
Take your fish fillets and coat with seasoning. I used a seasoning from Outback Steakhouse, and its just awesome. If you don’t have a good hookup to get the seasoning, you can use any cajun type of seasoning. I also sprinkled with the chipotle flakes here too.
throw it in the pan with season side down and season the top
cook for a couple minutes then flip
after you flip add some of the chili and jalapeno slices and cook for another couple minutes
I like to throw the tortillas over the burner for a few seconds each side to warm them up and give them a nice color
now to make the taco. add the fish and peppers
throw on some tomatoes
and the mango
and the perfectly sliced cabbage
Cut a lime in half
squeeze juice over top to finish it off
Oh wow, was that an amazing taco. The tangy tomatoes and the flavor of the mango jump out against the heat of the peppers and the fish. Its so good and super easy to make.
Here were my two puppy helpers who sat at my feed while I made dinner. They were a big help.
These tacos were so good. I’m definitely making these again soon.
