  • I love fish tacos...usually when we make them we use mahi mahi or halibut...you can bread and fry them but I try to keep them healthy so I grill my fish...We put the fish on the taco, cabbage and a bit of home made tartar sauce. Alternately I sometimes will make sort of a cold slaw from and use that in place of the shredded cabbage...

    YUM!!!

  • I heard of this the other day. I would think that tuna would make the most sense since you can make chicken tacos and tuna is a little like chicken. But on the other hand I bet most fish would be good..like catfish :D

  • I recently discovered fish tacos. I also just recently had coconut shrimp tacos! AMAZING!

    If you like SALMON, you will love these SALMON TACOS ! They are so GOOD! I ate them 4 days in a row for lunch!!

    Buy salmon (we just bought frozen and it worked fine for this) Marinate your salmon in fresh Lemon juice, Lemon pepper and salt pepper etc. - Marinate for at least a couple hours. Bake Salmon until the meat flakes . Let cool and shred.

    Most measurements done to taste: Go with your gut - In a sauce pan saute chopped onions, minced garlic and olive oil until onions are transparent. Add one pint of whipping cream. Keep on Medium/High heat and stir for around 8-10 minutes. Add a few pinches of salt and a couple pinches of sugar. Pepper too. Take off heat . Add 1 TBLS of Lemon Juice and 1 TBLS of Lime Juice and as much cilantro as you like. Let cool.

  • Serve with shredded red and/orcabbage ( I do both because it's pretty) , cilantro and limes.
    I use corn tortillas but you can try whatever you like. Also if it's just me and hubby eating this, I use two fillets, but this is a great group meal.

    We made them for a group of 50 recently We used 3 bags of salmon from Costco. It's not cheap, but that was our main expense. (less than $60) I think I did 3 batches of sauce. All the sides are fairly cheap.

    I also discovered that the sauce seems better if you make it a day ahead. It's gets thick after being in the fridge. I liked it cold, but you could reheat it some if you wished. Serve the sauce along with all the other sides. I like ALOT on the taco ,but hubby likes very little.

    Let me know what you think if you make these! They are addicting!
