Fish tacos

This dish is a bit more ambitious than black bean tacos, but it’s still simple enough. You can use many different kinds of fish, including cod and tilapia. You simply cook the fish in a skillet with seasoning for four to five minutes each side, then add it to the tacos with your preferred accompaniments.

Penne alla vodka

One for the grown ups. Simply sauté garlic and onions, pour in the vodka — be careful if you’re cooking on an open flame — and then add tomato purée, followed by heavy cream, followed by butter. Toss the sauce with cooked pasta and serve with Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. Cheers!
