Father’s Day Feast: June Recipes to Delight Dad

Mahi Tacos

Tacos for Dados! Fish tacos can make just about any Dad emerge from his man cave, at least long enough to fill up his hungry belly! 

Basic Fish Tacos 

If you are using a firm fish (we used Mahi Mahi) then by all means use the outdoor grill. Fish fillets cook very rapidly and fall apart easily so pan frying on the cooktop works very well. 

  • 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika 
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb. Mahi-Mahi or Grouper (or other flaky white fish)
  • 1/2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 corn and/or flour tortillas
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Lime wedges, for serving
  • Sour cream, for serving

In a medium shallow bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, paprika, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne. Add fish filets, tossing until evenly coated. Let marinate 15 minutes. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat vegetable oil. Remove cod from marinade and season both sides of each filet with salt and pepper. Add fish flesh side-down. Cook until opaque and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Let rest 5 minutes before flaking with a fork.

Assemble tacos: Serve fish over grilled tortillas with top with slaw, avocado or a combination of your favorite toppings. Squeeze lime juice on top and garnish with sour cream.

Lavender Honey Ice Cream

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons dried edible lavender (available Amazon) 



Instructions:

  1. Add the 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1/2 cup honey, and 2 tablespoons dried culinary lavender to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Stirring occasionally, cook until the lavender cream mixture is steaming.


  2. Check to see that the honey is completely dissolved into the cream and then remove the pan from the heat. Allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes.


  3. Using a fine-mesh sieve, strain the lavender cream and discard the solids.


  4. Chill the mixture for 1 hour and then freeze it in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

 Serve in bowls or cones and enjoy!
