Southwestern Fish Tacos


1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
4 teaspoons taco seasoning, divided
1/2 pound cod or haddock fillets, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon canola oil
4 taco shells
Optional ingredients: shredded lettuce, chopped tomato and lime wedges


1For sauce, mix mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro and 2 teaspoons taco seasoning. In another bowl, toss cod with lemon juice and remaining taco seasoning.
2In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute cod just until it begins to flake easily with a fork, 4-6 minutes (fish may break apart as it cooks). Spoon into taco shells; serve with sauce and remaining ingredients as desired.
