Convection Broil Fish Tacos

Before turning the oven to the Broil mode arrange the oven racks so one rack is close to the top heating element but not too close to avoid burning the food.


For easy clean-up line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, shiny side down and be sure to have the sauce and other ingredients ready for quick assembly once the fish is cooked. The tortillas can be steamed in a Combi steam oven or heated on the cooktop.

Ingredients

Fish


1 ½ lbs wild Alaskan cod fillets or other firm fish

2 tsp Old Bay seasoning or chili powder

1 tbsp vegetable oil


Sauce


½ cup sour cream

¼ cup mayonnaise

1 lime, juice only

1-2  tbsp Chilis in Adobo sauce


Filling


1 package prepared coleslaw

Thinly sliced radish

Sliced avocado

Preparation

The oven will heat quickly in the Convection Broil mode and the fish will cook in approximately 5 minutes, so begin by mixing the sauce ingredients, assembling the filling, and preparing the optional garnishes. I find the smoky flavor of chilis in Adobo sauce compliments fish tacos really well but you may prefer another type of hot sauce.


Heat the oven in the Convection Broil mode at 450℉ degrees.


Place the fish on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil, shiny side down. Season with your preferred topping and drizzle a little oil over each fillet. Place in the oven and cook for 3 -4 minutes until the fish is seared and flaking naturally.  


Remember, it’s important to keep the oven door closed when broiling.

Place a heaping tablespoon of sauce on a warmed tortilla, top with the coleslaw and some broiled fish.

One of the great mysteries of the the appliance industry is that most ovens sold nowadays feature Convetion cooking modes; however, recipes rarely reference cooking with Convection.

Ingredients

Preparation

1 - cup whole raw almonds lightly toasted and cooled

¾ - cup twice-sifted cake flour

1 ½ - teaspoons baking powder

Pinch of kosher or sea salt

4 - large eggs

1 - cup sugar

1 - teaspoon vanilla extract

Finely grated zest of one small orange or Meyer lemon

⅔ - cup extra virgin olive oil

Toast the almonds in the Convection Mode 325 degrees until golden brown inside, set aside to cool completely. 


Leave the oven set at 325 or change to 350 degrees if using standard Bake Mode.


Butter the bottom and sides of a 9” round cake pan and line the bottom with a circle of parchment paper.


Place the almonds in a food processor with one third of the cake flour and process until almost as fine as sand.  


In a medium sized bowl whisk together the remaining cake flour, baking powder and salt then whisk in the ground almond mixture.


In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the eggs on high speed until well-blended. Add the sugar gradually then add the vanilla and orange zest. Continue whipping on high speed until the mixture triples in volume, about 3 minutes.


On low speed, add the flour mixture in three batches alternating with the olive oil and beating just until the batter is blended. 


Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until firm to the touch in the center.  Cook in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting onto a rack.
