Quick and Easy Shrimp or Fish Tacos with Cilantro and Lime Essential Oil Dressing

I love the clean taste fresh cilantro adds to a dish. I used to buy a bunch of cilantro from the grocery. I would use some in a recipe and before I can use them again, the fresh cilantro is wilted.How disappointing! Money wasted.

We use cilantro quite a bit at our home.

Shrimp Tacos With Cilantro Essential Oil Dressing
It is often the "star" ingredient next to the meat or protein source. Our pico de gallo or salsa is savory with cilantro. Money spent on wilted cilantro adds up fast! Since my introduction to essential oils, I've incorported them into my cooking. They're easier to store and add a very potent ingredient to your dish. A word of caution....make sure you are using pure therapeutic or food grade essential oils. You wouldn't want to use oils with a bunch of chemicals added into them.

Cilantro is good with rice, chicken, and seafood. When I'm too busy to cook, I make fish or shrimp tacos. It's quick and easy to whip up especially on hot nights. Depending on the ingredients you have on hand, you can make 

dōTERRA® Cilantro, Black Pepper & Lime Essential Oil
the tacos as elaborate or as simple as you want.

Here's the basic recipe:
1 lb sauteed or grilled fish (trout, tilapia, cod or shrimp)
Small corn tortillas
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
1 tsp cooking oil (olive oil or canola)
1 drop doTERRA Lime Essential Oil
1 drop doTERRA Cilantro Essential Oil
Optional (1 drop of Cumin Essential Oil)

Fresh Brook and Rainbow Trout

1-2 cups Asian or Regular Cabbage 
Toppings of your choice (salsa, guacamole, fresh tomatoes, green onions)
Shredded Cheese (cheddar or spicy jack)

Cilantro Sauce or Dressing 
(Options: sour cream, guacamole, salsa verde or any salad dressing)
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1-2 tsp minced garlic
One drop of Cilantro Essential Oil (You may also use 1 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro)
One to 2 drops Black Pepper Essential Oil (Option: black pepper to taste) 
Salt to taste

Pan Fried Trout With Cilantro Essential Oil
Saute fish in your choice of cooking oil or butter  (grilled fish works as well). The fish will start having some juice or liquid mixture in your pan due to butter or oil. When your fish or shrimp is about done, spoon a little bit of the juice into a bowl.

Pan Fried Rainbow Trout
Add one drop each of cilantro and black pepper essential oil into the fat or liquid mixture. I used dōTERRA essential oil. Put the liquid mixture back into the fish and mix thoroughly. If you have fillets of fish, shred fish as you cook them. 

In the meantime, heat up a skillet and start warming or toasting your corn tortillas. I like mine a bit crunchy. If you're grilling your fish or shrimp, grilled tortilla shells are fabulous. Toast both sides. When your fish or shrimp is ready, start assembling your tacos. 
If you're not using cilantro dressing, place a dab of sour cream or guacamole on the tortilla. Add your fish or shrimp. Top with shredded cabbage and cheese. 
There you go, quick and easy shrimp or fish tacos for dinner.

This recipe is so versatile. As you can see from the 2 tacos on the right, beef is a great substitute. I've followed the same recipe with chicken breasts.
We're loving our cilantro dressing (aka sauce). I use it with farm fresh eggs and black beans in the morning.

I am also using cilantro dressing sauce over fresh green salad from the Lost Creek Organics in the Okanogan Highlands. I love their garlic, Mesculin Salad Mix, and asparagus.

They make the best handcrafted soap as well. I must admit, the fresh veggies topped with my new passion for cilantro dressing is making me eat healthier. I even have salads for breakfast!

TIP: Always add essential oils at the very last minute. They mix better
