Fish Tacos

These came out great!  It was pretty simple, not too many ingredients.  I'll definitely make them again!
Makes 8 tacos.

Fish Taco Sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayo
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/3 cup chopped cilantro

Make the sauce first.  Whisk the first three ingredients together.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir some more.  Set aside in the fridge.

Fish Tacos
1.25 lbs. fresh cod
8 white corn tortillas (taco size)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1-10oz. bag of shredded green cabbage
1 Tbsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. olive oil

You can cook the fish fillets however you like, bake, broil, grill.  I cooked mine on the stove top in a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil.  When you put the fish in the pan do not move it around for 2-4 mins.  Let it get a nice thin crust on it.  Squeeze lime juice over the top of each fish.  Sprinkle the fish fillets with garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Cook over medium heat, thin fillets cook 3-4 mins. on each side.  For thick fillets cook 4-6 mins. on each side.  While your fish is cooking prepare your tortillas. Place shredded cabbage and cilantro in the tortilla.
Double check and make sure your fish is done. Remove fish to a cutting board.  Let it stand for a minute. Then rough chop it.  Place chopped fish in the prepared tortillas.  Drizzle fish taco sauce over the top and enjoy!
