Chili Catfish Tacos

These tacos are sooooooo good!! They are perfect for a Sunday afternoon football day! You can use whatever kind of tortillas you like, depending on your taste. I prefer flour, but if you have a really juicy fish corn works better. And I suggest really dusting with the chili powder, it may seem excessive at first, but it will disperse with cooking. Plus the lime mayo is soooo yummy with this.


1 pound of catfish filets
chili powder
1-2 limes
1 cup of mayo
shredded lettuce
1 tomato, chooped and de-seaded
1 small can slices olives chopped
small flour or corn tortillas


Preheat broiler on high. Coat fish generously with chili powder, salt and pepper. Place on greased rack with a roasting pan. Broil 4-6 inches from heat for 8-12 minutes turning once. Cut into 1 inch pieces. Serve with lettuce, tomato, olives and lime mayo (recipe below)

Lime Mayo:

Grate 4 tsps of zest from lime and squeeze lemon to make 4 tsps of juice. Combine well with mayo,
