Smoke Tuna Inspired Sope

Print

Growing up my father loved when my mom would make sopes. They are one of his favorite Mexican dishes. I remember eating these delicious corn meal minature “tapas” if you may call it. I never asked where the concept of a scope actually came about. Long story short, when you ask the women in my family “whats for dinner” most likely the response would be “tolondrones” to-lon-dro-nes; para los preguntones. Translation meaning : none-yah- none of your business. But for some reason, this always sounds funnier in Spanish. Anyways, I have translated my moms sope recipe into a healthier version which is perfect for lunch or dinner!

Further Food Commentary:

For a fresh, quick dinner that hits all the nutrition marks, this is it. This dish is high in heart-healthy unsaturated fats, fiber, and protein yet low in sodium and has no cholesterol. Adding fish to your diet can be difficult, since fresh fish is expensive and hard to cook right. Smoked fish is an inexpensive and easy alternative, especially for someone who doesn't have time to cook. Fatty fish, like tuna, contain both EPA and DHA (omega-3 fatty acids) that are essential for proper brain development and reduce your risk for adverse cardiovascular events.
