Fish Tacos


“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.” –Abraham Lincoln

This looks like an easy Sunday dinner recipe so I’m saving it here:


Serves 8 (makes 16 tacos)

Cabbage Slaw
3 cups green cabbage, shredded
½ cup red onion, diced
1 cup sour cream
1 lime, juiced
¼ teaspoon salt

For the rest of the tacos:
4 tilapia filets
¼ teaspoon ground cayenne
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
Corn tortillas



1. In a large bowl, combine green cabbage, red onion, sour cream, lime juice, and salt. Chill until ready to serve.
2. In a bowl, mix cayenne, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Season each tilapia fillet on both sides with the seasoning mix.
3. Over medium-high heat, cook 2 fillets at a time for 8 minutes, flipping halfway. Repeat for the remaining fillets.
4. Using a fork, break apart the fillets into bite-size pieces.
5. Right before serving, heat the corn tortillas in the pan over high heat. Remove from the pan and assemble the tacos with the cabbage slaw and tilapia.
6. Garnish with cilantro and lime juice.
7. Enjoy!


Dora Mae’s Halibut


“The most important of the Lord’s work you will ever do will be within the walls of your own homes.” — – Harold B. Lee

This recipe is from Grandmother Elaine Smith.  It is such a yummy dish.  Elaine said there are no longer cans of ‘cream of shrimp soup’ in the stores so she makes a white sauce and adds fresh small shrimp to the sauce.  I don’t know if she uses evaporated canned milk in place of regular milk or not.

  • 1 lb halibut cut in one inch pieces (you can get it at Costco)
  • 2 cans cream of shrimp soup (thinned–with 1/3 c canned milk)
  • Place fish in buttered casserole.  Pour sauce over well buttered fish.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Here is a basic roux recipe:

2 T butter, 2 T of flour, 1 cup whole milk

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add flour and stir until the butter and flour are well combined. Pour in milk, stirring constantly as it thickens. Add more milk depending on desired consistency.
