Cooking with Devilham, the man, not the pork product

Here's what I made my wife and I for dinner (at her request) the other night, Fish Tacos, Nachos, and homemade Margaritas.

Fish tacos are dead easy, I used tilapia for the fish, cut it in strips and lightly floured it, then deep fried it. In a cast iron skillet on medium low I softened my corn tortillas by lightly brushing them with olive oil and searing them for a few seconds then covered them with a bowl and put them aside.

I made a lovely sauce with half mayonnaise, half sour cream and a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (that's a smoked jalapeno in a tomato garlic sauce) blended in to both, and a salsa verde by roasting some tomatillas, jalapenos, onion, garlic, and a serrano chili under the broiler, then tossing them all into the blender with some lime juice and cilantro. Served up with some shredded cabbage and some cheese, it was a lovely meal.

Sounds good!

Lord, I hope you squeezed the lime juice for those margaritas and didn't use any icky mix!

I squeezed 16 was actually a lot more work than I had thought it was going to be (I only have one of those wooden hand reemers for juicing citrus), but they were delicous.

I have a nice hand-held lime squeezer that you can buy in the grocery store - makes it very easy. But when I have a party, I use my squeezer attachment for my food processor and squeeze them by the dozen!
