Norwegian Cod Tacos Dinner Party

Find a recipe here for North-of-the-Border Cod Tacos, or how about Tacos made with other seafood? But, it must have a South of the Border kick.

First, defrost frozen cod or other seafood; rinse and dry off the fish with paper towels. Keep it in the refrigerator until you have the marinade sauce ready.

If you don't have cod on hand, other types of seafood will work just fine.

You can even use bacalao-type cod, which is salted and dried, salmon, or shrimp. Most seafood lends itself well to making delicious tacos.

If you choose to make tacos using salted and dried cod, you must first soak the cod for a few hours, changing the water a few times to remove the excess salt.

Place the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl and stir. Add fish fillets and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Marinade Sauce for the Cod or Seafood Tacos.
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes or use chopped fresh tomatoes
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
onions of choice, chopped
green onions, chopped
juice of 1 lemon or lime
chopped Cilantro
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 or less jalapeno pepper, finely diced
1 teaspoon salt, omit if using bacalao type cod.

Marinate the seafood for 1 hour or more and strain.
Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil into a large pan and add strained ingredients and saute until onions are soft.
Add the cod and saute until it is flaky.

Do not overcook the cod or turn it too often, the fish will fall apart. Seafood requires a very short cook time.

Sauted cod fillets and vegetables.
roma tomatoes, firm, chopped
green onions, chopped
green peppers, chopped
sweet red peppers, julienne
