After an awesome day of fishing in Hawaii, we brought home some Opakapaka (Pink Snapper) fillets and made some of the best fish tacos I have ever had. Opakapaka tacos make an amazing dinner, so be sure to try this next time you are in Hawaii. Read below for the Recipie
The pink ones are the Opakapaka
Here is the recipe we used to make them
First Make The Toppings
Mix the following ingredients in a bowl .
1 Cup Sour Cream
2 Tablespoons Mayo
1 Clove Garlic Minced
1 cup fresh cilantro
2 Serrano Peppers Minced( remove the seeds first )
1/2 Teaspoon sugar
Salt to taste
Squeeze in 1 lime
Pour over 1 bag of shredded cabbage and toss
Second, Make The Sauce
Mix Mayo and Sriracha sauce to taste
Third Cook The Fish
Cut fish into taco size strips.
Pour Fish Fry mix into a 1 gallon zip lock bag. We used McCormick Fish Fry Mix.
Crack a couple of eggs in a bowl and mix them up with a little milk
Dip the fish pieces in the egg/milk mixture and then place them in the bag of fish fry mix and shake till they are completely coated with the mix
In a large Skillet , heat up some avocado or canola oil.
When the oil is hot, take the strips of fish out of the bag and cook in the oil until done.
Once the fish is cooked and the toppings are ready, brown your flour tortillas in a frying pan.
When the tortilla is done, remove from the pan and add your fish, toppings and sauce.
