not quite ensenada

I came up with this one night when we were living in Boston and there was not a fish taco to be found in the city. It's not exactly true Mexican, and definitely not Ensenada style, but still a tasty California-esque hybrid.

fish tacos
These are super-easy to make. Take a firm white fish (cod in this case), dredge in cornmeal seasoned with chili powder blend (my own blend, here), and pan-fry until done. Assemble in tortilla with mango-avocado salsa and cilantro.
[fish, cornmeal, chili powder (ancho chiles, chipotle chiles, garlic, oregano, cumin, salt), tortilla, mango-avocado salsa, lime juice]

mango-avocado salsa
This is so nice with perfectly ripe fruit. Finely dice an onion and squeeze lime juice on it to macerate. Dice an avocado, mango, and tomato. Mince cilantro. Toss with the onion mixture. Add salt to taste. A finely diced jalapeño would be nice for some heat, if you like.
