Very Wild Fish Tacos

Mood: Wild

Cost: Cheap

Difficulty: Easy

Rating: XXXX
The Tease
You won't find any cabbage or cilantro in these wild and very sexy red snapper tacos. You will find organic roasted red peppers, garlic, onions, cheese, roma tomatoes and romaine lettuce. A happy ending to what may be more of a Tuscan style fish taco.

Time To Cook:
• Novice cook: 50 minutes
• Experienced cook: 35 minutes
Sexy Factoid: Farm raised fish are not as sexy as their wild counterparts. Farmed fish are fattier, provide less omega 3 fats and they possess more antibiotics and pesticides then their wild kin. Wild is better!

• 1/2 pound of wild red snapper

• 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil

• Juice of one lime (fresh)

• One red pepper - roasted and diced into small pieces

• 1/2 of a red onion - small dice

• 2 cloves garlic, crushed

• Lettuce, chopped for garnish

• Semi-soft Italian mild cheese or goat cheese

• 6 small tortillas

• 1 heart of romaine, chopped

• 1 chopped Roma tomato

• Tortilla chips

• Salt & pepper

• Cast iron pan

• Mixing bowl

Don't forget your measuring cups and spoons and cutting board!

Preparation (Do it!)
These are fast to make, so you can take your time eating them.

1) Season the fish with salt and pepper (to taste), lemon or lime juice. If you want, you can also add extra herbs such as basil or oregano.

2) Roast the pepper. Place pepper directly onto the gas range and turn on to high. (If you have an electric stove, place the pepper in the oven at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes until black.) Turn the pepper so that all sides are very black. Put the pepper in a paper bag. Let it cool to room temperature, then take the pepper out and peel away the skin. Chop and set aside.

3) Sauté the onion and garlic in extra virgin olive oil until translucent and set aside.

4) Grill or saute the fish on medium heat in a non-stick pan (cast iron is best) with olive oil.

5) Cut the lettuce, crumble the cheese and stuff all of the ingredients in the tortilla to make your taco.
