Normally I don't like to brag,
but I make the BEST fish tacos.
Seriously, these fish tacos are kind of a big deal.
I probably shouldn't even be sharing the recipe,
but since it got leaked a few months ago when my
mother-in-law shared it with family on the east coast,
I figure I may as well share it with the world.
But I should warn you,
once you try these fish tacos
you will never be happy with
any other fish tacos because
none even compare to these.
And here's why:
It's all in the sauce.
Say it with me,
"It's all in the sauce!"
Just stock up on everything in this picture
because you'll be making this sauce again and again.
1/2 cup Plain Yogurt
1/2 cup Sour Cream
Juice of 1 Lime(not pictured)
1 can diced green chiles
*or minced jalapeno if you like it hot
1 teaspoon minced capers
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon dill weed
1/2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
*adjust based on how hot you like it
Mix everything together
Mix everything together
Chill for 30 minutes
Now for the fish,
there are two versions.
First ask yourself,
Do I feel like being good or being really bad?
The healthy version is simple,
Just cut fish into strips,
*Preferably boneless, skinless Cod
Season/marinate for 15 minutes
*Marinade: Lime, Cumin, Additional seasoning to taste, Olive oil
Wrap in heavy duty foil
*Coat inside of foil packet with nonstick spray
Grill for 10 minutes until fish is cooked/flaky
Combine 1 cup flour, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt,
Blend 1 egg and 1 cup beer
Quickly stir egg/beer mixture into dry ingredients.
Dip fish into batter and deep-fry until crisp and golden brown.
Drain on paper towels.
I prefer these blue corn tortillas:
Fry them to make them crispy or just warm them
You can also use regular corn, flour, whole wheat, low-carb, etc...
How to assemble Fish Tacos
This may seem silly,
it is kind of a no-brainer.
So feel free to stop reading now.
But, whenever I serve these to a crowd,
which I have done dozens of times,
this always happens:
A guest walks up to the assembly line,
stares at the ingredients with an expression of
bewilderment across their face and asks
"Okay, how do I do this?"
As if they've never made a taco before in their lives!
Dear Family and Friends, I'm sorry for publicly shaming you for your lack of taco-building skills. I love you all!
Grab a tortilla
Sprinkle some cheese on top
Place a few pieces of fish on
Sprinkle with cabbage/coleslaw mixture
Top with a big heaping spoonful of sauce
Then add whatever else you're into:
Avocado, lettuce, tomato, onion, salsa, you name it.
I prefer to keep it simple.
Now just eat and repeat!
