Dinner 3/4/09 - Flounder Tacos

Tonight I made flounder tacos for dinner and they turned out yummy! The recipe originally called for tilapia but I had flounder on had so that is what I used.
I know they don't look beautiful but they tasted good and in the end that is what really matters. Here is the recipe:

4 Soft Taco Size Flour Tortillas
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 pound tilapia fillets
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 cups mixed greens

Chipotle Cream Sauce

2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo (minced and seeded)
1 cup non-fat sour cream
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix the Chipotle Cream Sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

In a skillet set at medium-high heat, add the seven ingredients from the olive oil through the cilantro. Saute those ingredients for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, add the tilapia and cover and cook for 3 minutes or until fish is fully cooked. Then add in lime juice and let cook for 1 additional minute.

Heat the tortillas according to the package instructions. Lay each of the warmed tortillas on a cutting board and place one-quarter of both the field greens and fish on the center of each tortilla. Then top each with equal amounts of the Chipotle Cream Sauce.
Fold the tortillas over to form tacos and serve.
I used two flounder filets because I am cooking for one. I buy them in frozen at Sam's club.
Time to make the chipotle cream sauce! For something so simple it tastes very good. I love the smokey flavor of the chipotles.
Here they are all finished! I used a bag of salad mix which is why you see a few carrots and such scattered in there, but I really didn't mind. I also added a bit of tobasco sauce because I love spicy food.

All in all this was a good recipe and i'll definately be making it again. I made some spanish rice to go with it and it made a very good meal!
