There was truly nothing better than a rainy day today. I watched The Goonies, took a little nap, and then got all my ingredients together to make taco cups while enjoying the relaxing sounds of our wind chimes outside.
Let’s begin with our taco cups first! Preheat your oven to 375°, then oil your tortillas and sprinkle them with salt, pepper, and a decent amount of garlic powder. Fold them and place them into your muffin tin.
Bake them for 10 minutes and then take them out of the tins. Place them upside-down on a baking sheet, and proceed to bake for 3 more minutes.
Next shred your cabbage. Mix it with your mayo and horseradish to create a Pepto Bismal looking concoction, due to your cabbage bleeding a bit into your mayo.....I assure you it tastes delicious!
Let's Salsa! (Cues mental Gloria Estefan song) - Small dice your tomato, onion, jalapeno, and mango and toss in lime juice, wine, and salt. It's quick, easy, goes great with everything, and now you have that extra moment to take that mental song and make it a reality! "Come on, everybody do the conga, I know you can't control yourself any longer....."
And now for the star of our show.....Ahi Tuna! Can we first admire how truly perfect this fish is? I mean COME ON! Look at those lines!
Slice your Ahi into thin strips, salt it, and coat those sliced beauties in your breadcrumb mix by pressing it into the fish. Bring a lightly oiled sauté pan to med high heat, and fry lightly on each side for 10 seconds.
Note: You can also go au naturale with your tuna and leave it raw! Then mix it in with your salsa to give this dish a more refreshing summer feel!
I don't know about you, but I am starving, so let's put everything together! I like to layer mine starting with cabbage and working my way up to make this towering taco, but you mix it up any way you like! You can even add a bit of avocado too, for an extra creamy kick to your ahi-like fish stick. For now though, the rain has my name all over it! I am off to delight in dinner, and curl up with my hubs for a great movie! Till next time Goonies!
