Pinterest to my Plate, Grilled Fish Tacos

I was sooo in the mood for fish tacos today, but had never made them.  I hit up pinterest and came up with a few good ideas.  I wanted grilled fish (not fried), a slaw that wasn't mayo based, and some kind of cream.   This recipe came out great, what a great fresh taste.  I threw some pineapple on the grill with the fish and made a rice side.  It was amazing.

Grilled fish tacos with cabbage slaw and sriracha sauce

Creamy Sriracha Sauce:
1 cup fat-free greek yogurt (could also use sour cream)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
3 teaspoons Sriracha
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Cabbage Slaw:
2 cups pre-packaged slaw mix
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 Tablespoons olive oil 
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions (I use less)
Pinch of salt

Fish Rub: (for 2 filets)
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon kosher salt
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper
1 Tablespoon chili powder
Mix all ingredients together

Lightly drizzle olive oil on the filets, front and back, then sprinkle on rub.  Wipe down the grill with some oil before you put the fish on.  As it cooks, keep your eye on the thick side of the fish, and remove the it from the grill when the thickest edge is white all the way across.

We warmed the corn tortilla in a small frying pan before adding some of the fish, flaked.  Top with the slaw and a little of the sriracha sauce.

Digging my kitchen

Right now I've got a turkey in my oven, stuffing standing by ready to go in during the last hour. I'm brewing some iced tea and simmering the turkey stuff to use in the gravy. The smells in here right now are nothing short of fantastic. I love the blue and white in this kitchen. It's been mine since day one.

Let's try this again, shall we?

This past weekend several people have suggested to me that I need to start blogging again.  I was thinking of starting it up again as soon as Kae left for school, but really the stuff I was typing was just sad.  The beginning was really hard.  Living up here and working from home I have very little face to face time with anybody other than Drew and Kae, and then Kae went off to college.  The person who I talked girly stuff with was no longer around, and that was hard.  Still is, but I'm handling it better.

So now I'm left with this... what the heck do I blog about?  You all see my Facebook page, you know the updates, do I do special things here just for blog readers?  Pictures?  Adventures?  Who knows.  Here's what I can tell you.  I'll try and post once a week, and I promise no duplicate posts from my Facebook page.  It's time.

Day 20: What I read

Black Friday circulars stuffed the Sunday paper today.  I already used a $2 coupon from one of them.
