Ok, ok, I keed. I understand a hate for a particular food... remember all the foods I can't stand? ::shivers:: If someone tried to feed me something on my list, I'd SOOOOO unfriend them off of my Facebook.
Tortilla Chip-Crusted Fish with Creamy Salsa & Cilantro
adapted from Bride and Groom First and Forever Cookbook. Awwww.
2 white fish fillets (Halibut, Tilapia, or any other white fish)
1/2 Tbs ground cumin
2 Tbs melted unsalted butter
1 Tbs fresh lime juice (I put loads more. I love my citrus!)
2 handfuls of tortilla chips (hint of lime flavor FTW!)
3/4 cup medium salsa
3 Tbs sour cream
2 Tbs fresh chopped cilantro
Remember when my hubby brought home a freggin' XL satchel full of fish? I had the pleasure of gouging my fingers trying to fillet them all. I just had to point that out again. Point is, I have no idea what these fish are called. I don't know if they're halibut or some exotic fish that we just poisoned ourselves with.
I am so very sorry for doing what I did to you. You are such an honorable creature that put its life on the line for my selfish food dreams. I hope you can forgive me one day.
After hours upon hours of poking and snipping plus 5 band-aids later, I finally "filleted" it.
Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and cook for 10 more minutes.
In the meanwhile,
Top with the salsa mixture and cilantro, and put those fillets atop some yummy cilantro rice. This really was a great and refreshing dish! And for all you fish haters out there...give it a try. If you don't like it, give it to me, no questions asked. I'll take care of it...and take care of you, friend.
