A Wonderful Dinner

Tonight was a great hubby and I working together in the kitchen to create an amazing dinner.  Tonight we whipped up some fish tacos ~ A MAZ ING!  Mike started off making the white sauce:

White Sauce for Fish Tacos

1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 lime, juiced
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 tsp capers, minced
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Mix all together and let it sit for awhile to allow the flavors to meld.

While he was whipping the white sauce up...I was chopping up green cabbage and making up a wicked mango/papaya salsa.

Mango/Papaya Salsa

1 cup mango and/or papaya, chunked up
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

While I was chopping and hubby got to cooking up the cod.  Safeway has delicious cod on sale for $3.99 a pound.  I bought a couple of pounds but after tasting it...I should have bought a freezer full!  He seasoned it with some Cajun spice mixture that my brother-in-law was nice enough to leave at our house when he brought it for a dinner party.  Hubby then cooked up the fish in a pan with a bit of olive oil in it...perfection.

So here is how it worked:

Take a flour tortilla and put it on a plate, slather on some white sauce (be generous!), top with some crunchy cabbage, add the perfectly cooked fish, add some of the sweet delicious mango/papaya salsa and top with a bit more of the white sauce. 

This was the perfect dinner ~ my favorite guy and I working together to make a meal that was incredible!
