Fish tacos with Avocado Cream SauceYields about 8-10 fish tacos
- 1-1/2 pounds cod, cut into 2-inch chunks
- 1-1/2 tablespoons chili powder (divided 1 and 1/2)
- 2 teaspoons cumin (divided 1 and 1)
- 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder (divided 1 and 1/2)
- 1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder (divided 1 and 1/2)
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 egg, beaten (plus 2 tablespoons water)
- 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
- 2 cups chopped lettuce
- 1 white onion, diced
- 8-10 soft taco shells, warmed
- Avocado cream sauce (ingredients and directions below)
- Chipotle Tabasco or favorite hot sauce (optional)
- Chopped cilantro for garnish
- In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 tablespoon of chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, Kosher salt and black pepper. Sprinkle the spice mixture all over the fish, coating all sides. Allow fish to marinate in the spice mixture for 10 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large zip-closed bag, add panko, 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon onion powder. Prepare egg wash by whisking together 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of water. Place seasoned fish pieces (a few at a time) in the egg wash, coating all sides, and then place fish in the bag with the panko. Once all the fish is in the bag, seal it up and shake the bag around so the panko lightly coats the fish pieces.
- Coat a frying pan with olive oil and heat it up over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add fish in batches and fry the fish on all sides until the panko browns and looks crispy, about 2 minutes per batch. (You’re finishing the cooking of the fish in the oven, so it’s OK to undercook the fish at this point.)
- Once all the fish has been fried, place the fish on a pan and finish cooking in the oven for 4-5 minutes. Remove from the oven and check a piece for doneness. Taste and salt only if needed. Serve a few pieces of the fish inside a warm flour tortilla with avocado cream sauce (below), lettuce, onion, chopped cilantro and chipotle Tabasco sauce is using.

you a bitch
It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.
So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.
In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.
GIRLS ACTUALLY DO THIS
WHEN WE GET REALLY HAPPY LIKE THAT
AND CANT STAY STILL
AND GET A LIL BIT EMBARRASSED ABT IT
BOYS DO IT TOO

Seriously I do this. And then it’s like I lose a little bit of air and I just can’t. Asdfhhjkl.
Isn’t this the movie Trust, where that girl talks to this guy online, and she goes to meet him and it turns out that he’s like 40 and then he rapes her?
But there isn’t a singular look for African women and girls
Somali bantu women
