Grilled Amritsari Masala Fish Tacos

We enjoyed this fish recipe, from Cooking With Love and Spices, so much when we tried it recently, that we are repurposing it into an Indian-style taco.  This is how my younger son ate his fish the night we first tried it.  It’s quick, easy, and oh-so flavourful!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Serves: 4 people

Ingredients

  • Amritsari Masala Fish
  • 4 Naan bread
  • President’s Choice Peach (or mango) Chutney
  • Red Pepper Jelly
  • Raita
  • Diced Mango
  • Cucumber slices
  • Coleslaw

Preparation

  1. Follow instructions for Amritsari Masala Fish.  Flake cooked fish into a serving dish.
  2. Lightly toast naan on the grill.  Spread peach chutney on half of naan, red pepper jelly on the other half.  Put flaked fish, coleslaw, cucumber slices, and diced mango in the middle and drizzle with Raita.

Tips

  • Any type of flaky, mild fish will work with this recipe.
  • I prefer peach chutney, but by all means you can use mango chutney instead.
  • If you want extra heat, sliced jalapeno peppers would be awesome in this.
  • You can use tortillas for this, but it lends itself so perfectly to naan bread so go for it!
  • Make sure you keep the naan soft and pliable.  Do not over toast it or it will become crispy and crack.  No one wants cracked tacos.

Meal Plan for the Week of August 4, 2018

It’s a long weekend!  I hope you have planned a weekend full of absolutely nothing!  Get out there and have a good time!  My youngest comes home from camp on Saturday afternoon, so we’re going to be having two of his favourites–Dad’s burgers and Caesar salad.  On Monday I am experimenting with a BBQ sauce idea based on our favourite hotdog toppings.  Stay tuned for results.  We are heading out for a few days away this week, so while some days are our actual Meal Plan for the week, the others are plug-and-play from previous plans.  Hope you enjoy your week!

Tandoori-Style Grilled Chicken

I love Indian food, but because so much of it is made with yogurt I have to make it at home to enjoy it now.  The availability of lactose-free food makes it really easy to do this.  I’m calling it “Tandoori Style” chicken because is is grilled, rather than made in an actual Tandoor oven, but it has all the flavour and char you are looking for.  For summer meals, serving it with a variety of salads keeps it light and fresh.  For a heartier, winter meal, serve it with mint scented basmati rice and curried cauliflower.  Tandoori masala is the traditional spice blend, available in the International section of your local grocery store or an Indian grocery store.   Continue reading
