Fish Tacos (Gluten-Free)

Fish tacos have gained a large and growing following over the last few decades. You can find them featured at numerous taquerias and Mexican restaurants. Too often, though, they are coated in batter and so off limits to people with celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity. After watching so many of my friends writhe in culinary ecstasy as they enjoyed their fish tacos, while I was relegated to standard tacos, I resolved to find a a gluten-free fish taco recipe that I could enjoy; one that would honor the simple roots of the fish taco and bring me the same level of joy as my friends so often enjoy. This simple recipe is makes delicious fish tacos without breaking your budget, or chewing up too much of your time.

Peel the avocado and remove seed. Chop and reserve for later.

Warm the tortillas, either by heating in a microwave for 20-25 seconds on high heat, on top of a napkin or paper towel to absorb excess moisture.

Otherwise, heat the tortillas in a pan on medium-high, flipping regularly until warm and soft. Place warm tortillas on a towel and fold to cover.

Soak the fish fillets in cold water for at least one minute. Pat dry with a paper towel. Heat a large non-stick pan to medium-high heat. Add a couple of teaspoons of cooking oil to pan. Place fish in pan. Cook fish until barely translucent, but do not overcook. When done, remove to a separate plate. Season with salt and pepper.

Place a tortilla on a plate, add fish, salsa, cabbage, and avocado. Serve with Mexican style rice. Makes four servings. Adjust recipe as necessary.

Forum Members, This is a follow up question to a link posted in this thread I have read the Patient Celiac site before but she noted the possible use of Losartan (Potassium) contributing to Villi Blunting? This concerns me because I am now taking Losartan for blood pressure. ...

A few more thoughts. I also join others in saying ditch anything with oats for at least a while, even if they are certified. For hot breakfasts, have quinoa or buckwheat instead.

You've had great suggestions from everyone! Okay, some random thoughts from me. 3 roommates.....wow!.....almost a guarantee of something going wrong daily. They can't be using loose gluten flour, not to make cakes or gravy or anything. Flour hangs in the air for hours to days. What you breat...

Where can I go besides Europe? Anyone know of cool WWOOFing farms that support celiacs? specifically in South America or Asia?
