Fast & Easy Dinner: Asian Catfish Wraps

Fast & Easy Dinner: Asian Catfish Wraps


Love fish tacos but are tired of the same old Mexican style seasonings and toppings? For tonight's dinner I propose that you experiment with an easy variation: Asian inspired fish tacos. Shredded napa cabbage replaces iceberg lettuce, meaty mushrooms fill in for creamy avocado, and hoisin ginger sauce stands in for tomato salsa. If you are not a fan of catfish, substitute your favorite white fish, such as halibut or sole. Pair with a chilled glass of white wine or an ice cold Sapporo and you've got yourself one super summertime supper. Take a look at the recipe, just

I love catfish but have somehow never managed to order a fish taco ever. I dunno. I'd rather have beef.
