A couple weekends ago, the weather was rainy and cold. We didn’t have any plans and didn’t really feel like leaving the house with such crappy weather. Instead, we brought something tropical to us! I had a craving for tacos and my husband had the brilliant idea to make fish tacos with the leftover fresh pineapple we had!
I placed an Amazon fresh order and groceries were delivered to our house a few hours later. I honestly didn’t go by a recipe but wishing I had! There are some delicious avocado cream recipes circulating Pinterest, yummm! But, I also knew that I wasn’t selecting our produce and that I’d get a rock hard avocado, not ready to be prepared, hah! I did the next best thing and ordered guacamole 🙂
For our side dish, I didn’t stress about counting calories. It was a Saturday night after all… I added ingredients to make Mexican street corn. Smoky flavor to compliment the sweet pineapple. Mexican street corn is so good! Probably because it’s mostly Mayo and don’t skimp on it!
I need to practice my flat lays but I find it tough to photograph food. Plus I’m in a hurry to cook so I can EAT! I used cod instead of tilapia. Fresh was out of their homemade pineapple salsa but Newman’s is very tasty! More sweet than spicy – good balance. I also ordered coleslaw mix because it’s essentially the same as thinly slicing cabbage and carrots. I really don’t see the difference, lol. For the street corn, I used feta because we already had some in the fridge.
I searched Pinterest and found this recipe which closely resembles how I made our tacos, in case you want inspo! https://thefoodiephysician.com/tropical-fish-tacos-pineapple-salsa/
If you try this recipe let me know! We’re heading to Martha’s Vineyard in a little over a week – can’t wait to take you along! xoxo
