I always thought fish tacos would be yucky and fishy and not something I wanted to eat....until I went to the Fish Market Restaurant in Del Mar with my sister and we were trying to not eat meat (beef/chicken/pork) so I went with the fish tacos because the waitress said they are famous for their fish tacos!! Well, I tried them and WOW!! I cannot imagine eating a taco that is not a fish taco now!! No fishy taste at all, as long as you use a cod, or tilapia or even mahi mahi!
So my new quest began, make a delicious fish taco!
I tried a couple recipes so far but they were missing something....Today I made them with the help of Greg at Ballistic BBQ on youtube: Check his cooking skills out here: Ballistic BBQ. He had the winning recipe for a fantastic fish taco!
So here is how I made them, slight changes only due to what I had on hand, I used tilapia, 1 pound, chop into large chunks.
|The adobo sauce!|
The marinade is: 1/2 cup olive oil, juice of 1 lime, handful of chopped cilantro, and 3 spoonfuls of adobo sauce, blend in the food processor until smooth, dump in a large baggie and add your fish, mix it around and then put in the fridge to marinate at least a half hour!
Make some crema sauce: 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 spoons adobo sauce, splash of milk. blend in food processor then put in a squirt bottle, this is a great tip! Now you can easily squeeze some sauce on your tacos!! Put in fridge to chill.
Make some garnishes: sliced avocado, chopped onion, shredded cabbage, lime wedges, some cilantro. and corn tortillas.
Now get your grill or grill pan out and heat it up, throw on the fish and cook about 4 minutes per side. Also heat up your tortillas, once the fish and tortillas are done, assemble a taco and prepare to be blown away! Excellent dish!!
