Fish Tacos with Homemade Salsa and Guacamole

Saturday I made fish and scallop tacos with homemade salsa and guacamole.  I ran a bunch of errands, took pics of my condo so I can list it, made homemade tacos, worked on my blog stuff and business stuff then went out.  Pretty full day.  I took a few pics as I was making the deliciousness so that I could share it with you.

 I started with the salsa:

1 can diced tomatoes
1 can El Pato tomato sauce (Mexican style so it is hot)
1 bunch green onions
1 bunch cilantro
2 tsp garlic powder
a few dashes sea salt
some cracked black pepper

Chop green onions and cilantro and reserve some to go on top of the tacos.  In bowl put diced tomatoes and a little over half of the El Pato (or to desired heat- some may want less heat)

Then mix it all together and set aside to allow time for the flavors to mingle.

1 ripe avocado
a few dashes garlic powder
1-2 TBSP of your freshly made salsa
1 tsp of the El Pato hot sauce
a dash of sea salt

Mash the avocado, add ingredients, stir and set aside.

Look how fresh this is!!  I just LOVE fresh ingredients.  Homemade stuff is the best!!!!  I do not always have time to do it but today I made time to have this :)

For the tacos I used 1 piece of tilapia - because I thought we had more but we did not.  I improvised by using the scallops we have in the freezer, which by the way, were AMAZING.
In skillet put a few squirts of olive oil and placed the tilapia and scallops in at the same time.  I put a couple dashes of sea salt and cracked pepper as well as a couple dashes of garlic powder.  Cooked until done and put on a corn tortilla.  

The finished product has half a piece of tilapia, cabbage, salsa, green onion, cilantro, 1 tsp guac and a few crumbles of goat cheese.  This goat cheese is more sticky so it is kind of in a glob at the bottom of the pic.  This was filling and I ended up not having the 2nd taco which was with the scallops.  I just had a few scallops with some of the toppings because I did not want to be over full by eating another taco.

The cool thing about fish tacos is you can really add some spices to increase or change the flavor but I did not want to take away from the salsa or guac so I just kept it simple.  What do you think of fish tacos?
