Jonboy says: "Living on the largest of the Great lakes is a fantastic thing. And one of the best reasons why is access to the varied fish species that call Lake Superior home: lake trout, walleye, salmon, and my favorite, whitefish. Ever wondered about some quick and easy ways to prepare whitefish? Well, come on into my kitchen and we’ll whip up some tasty whitefish tacos. Here’s what you’ll need."
Start the process by heating some olive oil in a frying pan. Lightly dredge your fillets in flour and place them in the pan with the garlic, salt and pepper, and brown sugar. Cook until golden brown and then flip over to cook the other side. Add your cilantro and turn off your heat. The fish should be flaky, not translucent. Now you can heat up your tortillas and start creating your soft tacos. Have your beans and rice warmed up, and place all the remaining ingredients inside your tortillas. Fold as you please and dig in. Easy, huh?

This recipe comes down to one thing: garden fresh cherry tomatoes, preferably Sun Gold cherry tomatoes. The recipe is easy to make, is great on a hot summer day, and the kids absolutely devour it!
Cook the pasta and drain. While the pasta is hot add the lemon juice, lemon rind, oil, salt and pepper. When cooled add cheese and tomatoes. Get it while you can.
