NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S WALLEYE
GRILLED TEQUILA LIME WALLEYE TACOS- MUY FACIL!
In the far north, wallleye are still being taken through the ice. But in the southern reaches of the walleye's range they are starting to hit in open water. So as you prepare to take on this tasty treat in your region, how about preparing to make it special when you get your fillets. One thing that people don't realize when they drop the fillets in frying oil is that walleye takes marinade very well. That's key for this recipe.
Here are your MARINADE INGREDIENTS proportioned for 1 lb of walleye fillets:
* 2 tablespoons tequila
* Juice from 2 limes
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 tablespoon Mex Chile Seasoning
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
1. Combine the ingredients for the marinade
2. Place the walleye fillets in the marinade, and refrigerate for one hour.
3. Prepare your grill and cast iron pan. Cook the walleye fillets for about 3 minutes per
side over high heat
4. Remove the fillets and chop into bite-sized pieces.
5. Serve with corn tortillas and whatever taco fixings you like. (Pico del Gallo, avocado, lime wedges and plenty of cilantro etc.).
TRY IT WITH A CILANTRO LIME SLAW
This slaw is ALL about the dressing. It's made with a combo of creamy sour cream and mayo, spicy jalapenos, tangy lime juice, garlic, and lots of cilantro.
1. Place ¾ cup sour cream, ¼ cup mayo, 2 cloves garlic, 1-2 jalapenos (remove seeds and membranes), the juice of 1 large lime, ¼ tsp. kosher salt and pepper, and 1 cup fresh cilantro in a food processor or blender. If you're accustomed to more spice feel free to use more peppers. Pulse until the dressing is completely combined.
2. Chop 8 cups of fresh cabbage (red or green) and place it in a large bowl. You can also use a bag of shredded cabbage to save time.
3. Pour the dressing over the cabbage and toss until completely combined.
