...but was a day late last week. Things got in the way last Tuesday so our taco night came on Wednesday instead. I had some fresh fillets from a couple of redfish caught 2 days before and I have plenty of local shrimp I had bought back in September so fish and shrimp tacos it was for the usual cast of characters that gather here...

So here we go again...
Shrimp and redfish...

Seasoned up with a low salt blackened seasoning I make. Most commercially available ones have too much salt...

Blackened on a 17" countertop electric Blackstone. My wife bought this thing last year and I'm not a big fan of it, but she loves it. One day I'll get an outdoor version...

Fish is done...

Made a sauce...
  • 1/3 cup Duke's mayo
  • 1/4 cup Mexican Crema
  • 1/4 cup Cotija cheese
  • 1 seeded & chopped jalapeno
  • Some chopped red onion
  • Zest and juice from 1 lime
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 t Ancho chili powder
  • 1/2 t cayenne pepper
  • 3 cloves of garlic chopped fine
  • Salt & pepper to taste

All ingredients combined in a bowl and tasted for seasoning. I think it could've used a little more cayenne and/or Ancho chili powder, but we had kids eating it. I did add a little salt, but no pepper.

Served with shredded red cabbage, tomatoes, pan fried corn, chopped jalapenos and a squeeze of fresh lime. Soft tortillas warmed on the Blackstone and it's time to eat. I had one each of the fish and shrimp. Can't really tell it, but there's fish on this one...

Great looking tacos. I'd sit at the kids table for a couple of those.

Jesus, you're ruining me Charles. Those look amazing as always but alas, they are off limits here. I'd jump off a cliff for a plateful of those buddy. Sadly though, Tracy cannot eat anything that swims. I envy you buddy.

Great Taco's Charles! Redfish probably my favorite just hard to find around here. Love that sauce.
Thanks, Brian. Redfish are quite common in our coastal waters, but there is a slot limit. We can keep 2 fish between 15"-23". Problem is those slot fish are hard to find, most are over 23" with many being well over 30". I think the limit should be changed to allow 1 fish over 23"...

Sooo delicious!
Seafood is my favorite food. Besides, healthcare specialists recommend seafood as a great choice for diabetics. Since I was diagnosed with type 2, I buy ozempic online and keep a healthy diet. Thank god I have a grill and can cook on it every day.
