1 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 tsp. dried leaf oregano
1/2 tsp. red chili flakes
1 c. molé sauce; ready-to-serve, warmed
2 medium tomatoes, thick sliced
4 Alaska Cod fillets (4 to 6-oz. ea.), fresh, thawed or frozen
1 Tbsp. olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil
8 small (6 to7-in.) whole wheat or multi-grain tortillas, warmed
8 lettuce leaves (Romaine, butter or iceberg)
3/4 c. (6-oz.) Mexican-style sour cream (Mexican crema)
What to do:
1. Combine lemon pepper and oregano; set aside. Stir chili flakes into heated molé sauce.
2. In a heavy nonstick skillet, sear tomato slices on both sides until slightly blackened. Cool slightly; coarsely chop, drain and set aside in small bowl.
3. Wipe out pan. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Cod under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of cod with oil. Place cod in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 min., until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.
4. Turn fillets over and season with lemon pepper and oregano. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 6 to 8 min. for frozen cod or 3 to 4 min. for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. Remove from heat; break into large chunks.
5. To serve, line tortillas with lettuce. Divide cod and tomatoes between tortillas. Top with 2 Tbsp. molé sauce and 1 heaping Tbsp. crema.
