Baja fish tacos with a great fish tacos sauce, now that is what I really, really like. You know, I would take baja fish tacos over a steak any day. But then that is just me. Today I thought I follow up my last post on baja fish tacos with three great fish tacos recipes which you might be able to use when you try out your hand with fish tacos.
I have already told you that you can use just about any type of fish for your tacos, but the most common one is white fish or something like cod or pollock. Now this is ok, but white fish is pretty bland.
That is why I recommend that you do not just grill up some fish, but that you season it rather nicely with some herbs and spices to kick it up a bit. Give this a try:
- chili powder
- black pepper
You want to pat the fish dry so that the seasoning will stick to it. Rub it all over liberally and then you can grill up your fish however you like it. Just do not overcook it.
Then you can add to your fish tacos any extras which you might like. Think about these:
Ok, enough of that. You have your fish and anything else you might want to put on it. Now here comes the sauce. If you are just looking for a basic white fish taco sauce, look no further.
Basic fish taco sauce
- 1/2 cup mayonaise
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
Pretty plain if you ask me and I personally would leave that to the old grammas out in Omaha. (No offense to grammas, my wife is one) But I like something with a little more kick. So check this one out:
Lime Cilantro Sauce
- 1 1/2 cup mayonaise
- 1 1/2 cup sour cream
- 3 Chipotle peppers which you can get out of the can of Adobo, diced
- 1 1/2 cups of chopped cilantro
- juice from one lime
- 1 TB olive oil
Now if you still need some more heat you can always add some diced jalapeno peppers. Or try a couple of splashes of good hot sauce which you like.
Now here is a great Lime, Cilantro & Green Chili Fish Taco Sauce
