#Flirt Squad Challenge 1: Taste the Heat by Rachel Harris ~ FavoriteRecipe

So earlier this week, I had the release day launch and blog tour for Taste the Heat by Rachel Harris on my blog. Rachel is so awesome and such a sweetheart. She also happens to be a kick ass author and I loved this book. I am also a member of Rachel's super awesome Flirt Squad on Facebook and she is hosting a challenge with some super awesome prizes. This week's challenge is to post a favorite recipe. Since I did some deep sea fishing this week and brought home a crap load of fish, I thought I share my Fish Taco recipe! Also, check out all the links and book information for Taste the Heat, which was released on July 8, 2013 and get your copy today!!

Fish Tacos

1 lb White Fish (halibut/Cod/Tilapia)
2 Tbs Lime Juice
1 tsp Chili Powder
2 Tbs Soy Sauce
1 Avocado
1 Tomato
Tortillas (soft fajita)
Shredded Cheese

How to make:
1. Cut fish into 1 inch pieces and clean out any bones if the fish has some.
2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and coat with olive oil cooking spray.
3. Saute fish until cooked completely through.
4. While the fish cooks, combine lime juice, chili powder and soy sauce in a small bowl. Cut up avocado and tomoatoes.
5. When fish is almost done, add lime juice/soy sauce mixture and finish cooking fish.
6. Heat tortillas in microwave and then spoon in fish, tomatoes, avocado and garnish with cheese & salsa.
7. Serve with baked tostitos chips and salsa

Makes 8 Tacos

One sexy fire captain. One Cajun chef, One combustible kitchen…

When chef Colby Robicheaux returned home to New Orleans to save her family restaurant, the last person she expected to reconnect with was her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush. As tempting as a sugar-coated beignet, Jason is one dish she doesn’t want to taste. Colby is counting down the days till she can leave the place where her distrust of love and commitment originated and go back to Vegas. 

Fire captain Jason Landry isn’t looking for love, either. He knows he should focus on finding the perfect mother for his daughter, but when he first sees Colby, all grown up and gorgeous, he can’t help but be drawn to her. And when she suggests a no-strings-attached fling, Jason doesn’t want to say no. 

As their relationship grows more intense, Colby finds that Jason isn’t as easy to leave behind as she thought. Could turning up the heat on something real be worth the possibility of getting burned?

  3. Oh, I hope you really like them! They are delicious and super healthy. Glad you copied the recipe :-)

  4. Yes! They are very point friendly, one of the reasons I love them :-) Let me know if you like them!

  5. YUM! I always used to think fish tacos was weird, because I never associated mexican with seafood (yeah I don't know... so many Spanish-speaking cities are on ports and seafood is huge so I should have known.) This looks good though. I would definitely try with some cod!

  6. Sounds yummy *bookmarking it*
