Fish Tacos Made with Healthy Homemade Tortillas and Mango Salsa

Scott made this yummy dish for our Sunday dinner.  Everything was freshly prepared and even the tortillas were made from scratch.  Replacing the white flour with a mix of whole wheat and rice flours, makes for a healthier tortilla. The chosen grilled fish was bass, which was excellent with the mango salsa and avocado chunks.  We regularly used to use tilapia but after hearing horrible things about it the way it is raised, we are expanding our fish horizons.  The bass worked very well!   Scott made the tortillas quite small, about 5 inches, which made for more of an appetizer-sized taco.  They can easily be made bigger though, simply by creating bigger dough balls and spreading them out to a larger size.  It all depends on your personal preference.

Tortillas Recipe

In a medium sized bowl, mix dry ingredients together, then lard.  Mix with hands until crumbly. Add water and roll into balls about 1/2 inches thick.   Take each dough ball and spread out to circle about 5-6 inches wide.  Coat your frying pan with oil and let it get hot over medium heat.  Add your dough circle and cook on each side until just beginning to brown.  Set aside for later use.
