It confounds me some people are put off by fish tacos.
It is a simple, delicious combination that when not overcooked, is a wonder. I am equally confused by those who do not like high-quality Mississippi raised catfish, like Simmons.
I can't imagine anyone not liking a well-made Mississippi catfish taco.
MISSISSIPPI CATFISH TACO
1 pound catfish fillets from the seafood shop
Salt and pepper
Egg and water to make a wash
100 percent whole wheat soft tortillas
1 cup mayonnaise
The flesh from a ripe avocado
Juice of a lemon
1 diced tomato
Season the flour with salt and pepper. Toss the fish in the wash, then the flour and fry crispy, just 2-3 minutes in hot oil. Combine the mayonnaise, avocado and lemon juice. Slather the tortilla with the mayonnaise mixture, add the fish and top with the tomato. Serve at once.
