Me and my friend Aaron love to cook together. Girl Erin and boy Aaron.

We both have similar dietary restrictions so its fun to find new recipes and try them together. I introduced him to the plantain taco shell and he introduced me to this amazing fish taco recipe! Together they were AMAZING! Together we make amazing meals!

Plantain Taco adapted from Whole New Mom blog


3 ripe plantains

1/2 c avocado oil

1.5 tsp hot sauce

1 tsp garlic salt

1/2 tsp onion salt

1/2 lime, juiced


1. Pre heat oven to 300F

2. Combine all ingredients in your food processor or blender until smooth.

3. On parchment lined baking sheet pour plantain mixture, spread it out with a spoon or spatula to what ever size shells you would like- I like to make smaller sized shells (around the size of my hand) It should be about 1/4 of an inch thick.

4. Bake for about 25 minutes- until they are firm but flexible. Remove from over and let the shells slightly cool.

5. Hang shells from the oven rack and cook for another 10-12 minutes. It may need longer but you want to watch them very closely so they do not burn!! This will help the taco shells have a bit more form and crisp up a bit.

6. Remove shells from over and open them up a bit so as they cool they will keep their open shape- this will make them easier to fill.

While the tacos are cooking cook your fish and prepare the fillers….


1 lbs of firm white fish

1/2 lime, juiced

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tbsp olive oil

sea salt & pepper


1/2 head of red cabbage

1/2 red onion, sliced

1/3 cup cilantro, coarsely chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 lime, juices

sea salt & pepper


1. Place fish in a baking dish. Pour lime juice, sprinkle spices and add 1 tbsp of the oil to the dish. Flip fish over to coat both sides. Set aside to marinate for 20 minutes.

2. While fish is marinating make the slaw. Combine cabbage, onion, cilantro, 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper in bowl. Pour lime juice over the slaw, mix and set aside.

3. In a frying pan with a bit of olive oil cook the fish on med- high heat for a couple minutes on each side. It is okay if the fish falls apart. Transfer cooked fish to a plate.

4. At this point you may need to add a bit more salt and pepper or lime juice to your slaw.
