    Fish Taco's

    We were down to a resort in Mexico earlier this year, with a 4-5 star cooking staff.

    I had seen some programs on Food TV that raved about fish taco's, but since I'm a Canadian, "taco's" are not terribly well done here.

    But I ordered them, just to satisfy my curiosity, and was astounded just how good these were! They used something like Marlin steaks, and a seasoning/sauce that could pop your eyeballs for flavour.

    Doing the "wrap" is a bit of a challenge in the Great White North, where we are expected to accept "Taco Bell" or "Tostido's" as being the standard of acceptance for such things. (Neither is it easy to find Marlin Steaks!)
    Obviously, there are others that understand how to get around such issues with scratch cooking methods and alternative ingredients. I've not been around this forum for a bit, and perhaps this has been discussed before, and just needs to resurface for updates.

    Any thoughts?

    I just kind of wing them myself, John. I use whatever fish I have handy and then toppings from my local Mexican market which makes excellent fresh salsas. Also like to add some diced avocado.

    Sometimes I buy tilapia that is breaded in tortilla crumbs from the same market (I've also seen this frozen), and cut into "fingers" and fry - that is really good in these.

    These were on all kinds of cooking shows in the last couple of years, and I imagine there are a number of recipes posted.

    I like to use whatever fish I have on hand too.

    Tilapia, is wildly available, and easy to prepare. No breading for me. I usually just grill or pan saute.
    You do NOT want a fish like flounder; as it is sooo tender and flaky. I tend to use a fish, that is a bit more firm. Grouper works well too. Cod or halibut would also work.

    Sometimes, I have done a light flour coating and pan sauteed too.

    Sour cream mixed with avocado, and lime is delicious
    A slaw of fennel, red cabbage and citrus flavors is fantastic
    I also love sour cream with sriracha which is a bit spicier.
    Mango or papaya is also fantastic in fish tacos

    Or, make a salsa with avocado, papaya, cucumber, jalapeno, and a little lime.
    It is fantastic with a citrus sour cream sauce; and a slaw.

    Everytime I make them, it is a bit different; but, Citrus salsas vs red salsas; lots of citrus marinade for the fish if possible, slaws (red, green, fennel) all good; and I love a good sour cream sauce of some kind to bring it all together.
