As a Chef, to admit never having a fish taco before is a sad sad thing. I usually opt for the beef, chicken or even vegetarian taco over the fish taco. I don't know why I had such terrible thoughts about the combination of fish with my love for a taco, but I just did. It could be in part because most Mexican Taco places in NYC are fairly shady in nature, and probably don't have the best repuation for sanitary conditions.....although this should alarm me no matter what the meat is..... ok whatever! I was an unwarented hater of the fish taco until I finally made them and realized there is nothing to hate. And in fact, there is a lot to love.

I paired these tacos with my Tomatillo and Avocado Salsa and I made a fresh spicy Sour Cream dressing to go on top.

  • Remove the fish from the pan and cut into smaller pieces. Serve in small tortillas with Tomatillo Salsa and Spicy Sauce (recipes below).
  • For the sauce: mix together the sour cream, lime juice and Sriracha - add in a 1/2 tsp water to loosen it up.
