pan-seared-image

Makes 4 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 clove garlic minced

  • For the fish:

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 1⁄4 pounds skinless cod fillets

  • 1⁄4 teaspoon Kosher Salt

  • 1⁄8 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

  • All-purpose flour for dusting

  • For the tacos:

  • 8 (6-inch) flour tortillas warmed

  • 1 shallot thinly sliced

  • 1 lemon quartered

  • For the aioli:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt

  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 4 cups baby arugula

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons capers rinsed and roughly chopped

Directions

  1. To make the aioli: In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon juice and zest, mustard, capers, and garlic. Season with black pepper, to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. To cook the fish: Set a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add the oil. Pat the fish dry, then season with salt and pepper. Dust both sides of fish lightly with flour.
  3. Add the fish, skinned side up, to the hot pan and cook undisturbed for about 5 minutes. Turn fillets over and cook an additional 4 to 5 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork or until internal temperature reaches 145°F.
  4. To make the tacos: Serve the fish in warmed tortillas and top with aioli, shallot, arugula, and a squeeze of lemon juice.

    RECIPE NOTE: I like to use cod for these tacos, but tilapia, haddock, or catfish will work too.
    COOKING TIP: For a thicker aioli, use 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise and omit Greek yogurt.
