Crispy Beach Fish Tacos + Weekly Menu

Last week I had a killer menu planned and everything was deeeeeeeeelicious! Last Sunday before hockey, I was whipping up these Crispy Beach Fish Tacos. I wasn’t so sure the kids would go for them, but luckily they did. I had doubled the recipe hoping that would be the case. And it often is when a meal involves fish – especially white fish.

But before all that, I was prepping away. I had saved a bit of money and bought a head of red cabbage instead of the pre-shredded offering and so I whipped out my mandoline, ready to go! I thinly sliced those stunning radishes and moved on to the cabbage.

I was nearly done with the whole head of cabbage when off came half my pinky finger pad.

Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it was a little gruesome there for a bit. I called Shea over to show her what a “real boo boo” looks like and she looked on with worried eyes. She had some questions: does it hurt? Would I like a Peppa Pig bandaid? Yes and yes, my love.

Hockey wasn’t pain-free, but I went for it. And after last night, I won’t complain about my mandoline injury. A guy on my team took a puck to the chin last night that resulted in a front tooth dangling in his mouth and a mouth full of blood. SO PAINFUL. I can’t even imagine. Very thankful for my FULLY caged helmet to protect my face. While he was a sport about a few guys calling him “Chicklets”, I would not be so humored.

No, in fact, I’d have left and called an emergency dentist…not continued playing! At least he went on to score a goal!

So with my caged helmet, it may be next up to invest in a kitchen safety glove for future mandoline use. ‘Cause…these tacos will be on repeat, no doubt!

    That is so sweet she was so worried about you ❤️❤️❤️! And ugh yes the teeth injuries with skating in general let alone hockey? So much blood and look soooo painful don’t get how people play without face guard. Hope you are feeling better as I’ve done that to my finger with a grater and it hurts!! You don’t realize how much you touch things til ever touch makes you go, “ow!” Lol. Will have to try this recipe this coming weekend as my fiancé has been asking for a fish taco and these look way better than others I found. Thank you!!

    Maybe 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or is your family able to handle 1/4 c??
    I sliced my thumb pad on my mandoline when my son was little. It hurt so bad!! I had one squeamish boy at the time, so I pretended it wasn’t so bad.
    I hope you have a great time in Hawaii!
