It's time to take Taco Tuesday to the next level! Using the delicious and refreshing Watermelon Salsa from our previous post, we'll now venture into the creation of Crispy Cod Fish Tacos. This delightful combination of savory, crispy cod with the sweet and tangy watermelon salsa, wrapped in a tender white corn tortilla, will make your taste buds sing. So, let's dive into the recipe.
- 1 lb cod fillets
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose seasoning
- 1 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- Oil for frying
- 8 white corn tortillas
- Watermelon Salsa
1. Prepare your cod: Begin by cutting your cod fillets into 2-inch wide strips. Sprinkle them evenly with the all-purpose seasoning, ensuring that every piece is well-coated.
2. Set up your dredging station: In one bowl, place your flour. In a second bowl, beat your eggs. In a third bowl, place your panko breadcrumbs.
3. Dredge your cod: One at a time, dip each cod strip first into the flour, then into the beaten eggs, and finally into the panko breadcrumbs, making sure it's fully coated at each stage.
4. Fry your cod: Heat a generous amount of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add your cod strips, frying them in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding the pan. Fry each piece until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the fried cod to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
5. Warm your tortillas: In a dry skillet over medium heat, warm your white corn tortillas until they're soft and pliable, about 30 seconds per side.
6. Assemble your tacos: Now, it's time to bring everything together. Place a strip of fried cod onto each warmed tortilla. Top with a generous spoonful of Watermelon Salsa.
And voila! Your Crispy Cod Fish Tacos with Watermelon Salsa is ready to serve. This recipe is perfect for a light lunch, dinner, or even a weekend brunch. Enjoy the harmonious blend of flavors - the crispy, seasoned cod perfectly complemented by the fresh, fruity salsa, all wrapped up in a soft white corn tortilla. Happy taco-making!
