Fish Tacos and Homegrown Corn Salsa
Visiting the garden is the best inspiration for meal planning especially when most of the garden is ripe!
The harvest dinner basket came back with corn (from the neighbor), bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, cabbage, cilantro, and banana peppers. All the makings for corn salsa, especially when adding some freshly squeezed lime juice, and salt and pepper! There were also some happy zinnias that are bursting in blossoms with the heat we have been having lately.
There were cod fish pieces, thanks to Trader Joe's and the freezer which would be perfect for a fish taco. They were breaded with an Irish beer batter which includes egg and Deschutes Brewery Twilight Summer Ale. The fish fried up nicely in some olive oil in the cast iron skillet.
The table was set with everything we needed to put the fish tacos together: corn salsa, cabbage sliced thin, grated cheese, corn tortillas, and flowers in the beer bottle!
Mmmmm, fresh fish tacos with corn salsa...what could be better for dinner tonight?
