Ingredients:

Fresh Masa

  • 2 c. yellow dent corn
  • 2 tbsp. pickling lime
  • 6 c. water

Corn Tortillas

  • Masa made out of 2 c. of corn
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp to 1/4 cup warm water

Fish

  • 1-1/2 lb. mahi mahi, tilapia or cod
  • 3 tbsp. oil
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 3/4 tsp. cumin
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Garnish

  • Sliced avocado
  • Diced onion
  • Cilantro
  • Lime wedges

Directions:

  1. 1. Pour 6 c. of water to a pan, add 2 tbsp. pickling lime and give it a stir. Add corn.
  2. 2. Bring to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 45 minutes. Cover and let it sit overnight.
  3. 3. Rinse the corn thoroughly under cool water. Rub handfuls of the kernels between your palms. The outer layer of skin should fall off easily.
  4. 4. Put the strained corn in your grinder (The Wonder Junior Deluxe mill with the masa auger accessory and stainless steel burrs).
  5. 5. Now it's time to prepare tortillas. Add 1/2 tsp. of salt and start working with the dough to form a ball. Add 1 tbsp. of water at a time (In my case that's all I needed). Be careful not to add to much water!
  6. 6. Form small balls (around 10-12) and prepare your tortilla press. If you don't own one, place each ball in between parchment paper or plastic and place a heavy skillet or dish on top.
  7. 7. Heat up griddle, cast iron or non-stick skillet. Bake tortillas each side 1-2 minutes or until brown spots start to appear. Keep warm covered with a cloth.
  8. 8. To the same heated pan add 3 tbsp oil. Rub all the spices, salt and pepper on fish. Cook 3-5 minutes each side or until cooked through.
  9. 9. Cut in pieces.
  10. 10. Assemble tacos. Add fish, sliced avocado, diced onion, cilantro and squeeze of lime. Serve immediately.
