Fish Tacos with Corn Salsa and Queso Fresco

When I was in California last month, we ate at this little seaside restaurant called Cody's in La Jolla.  It was fantastic and I highly recommend it, by the way.  I had the most amazing fish tacos that day and I took a pic of my plate... here's a pic of the restaurants and my plate:

I decided to try to adapt my fish taco recipe to include some of the ingredients in their recipe and here's what I came up with:

Fish Marinade:
1/4 c EVOO
2 Tbsp vinegar
2 Tbsp lime juice (fresh)
2 tsp. lime zest
1 1/2 tsp honey
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp old bay seasoning
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp hot sauce
Marinade 1 lb of mahi mahi or tilapia in shallow dish for 2 hours in refrigerator.
Cook fish in a skillet using a tbsp of olive oil.  Cook on both sides until fish is no longer translucent.

Dressing for Tacos:
8 oz sour cream
1/2 c chipotle salsa
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 tsp lime zest
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp old bay seasoning
salt & pepper to taste

Corn Salsa to dress tacos:
1 chopped red pepper
1 chopped green pepper
1/2 c chopped red onion
1 c. white corn (cut from cob)
1/4 c fresh cilantro
1 tsp lime zest
1 Tbsp lemon juice
Combine and refrigerate the above ingredients for 1 hr.  Then throw them in a warm skillet over med-high heat and toss for a minute, til they turn bright and then remove from heat.

Serve with sliced avocado and queso fresco cheese on warm tortillas.
