"Here is a delicious sauce for fish tacos! From Bon Appetit."
Serving Size: 1 (195 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"Never again will I use plain old sour cream on my Mexican dishes! This was simply delicious! I know that the recipe says that the sauce is for fish tacos, but I had some leftover taco meat from last night's dinner, so I used it on ground beef. Thanks for a great idea Bev!"
"Excellent, Bev. I substituted key lime juice and added just a little zest. Normally I use these ingredients (crema, cilantro, lime) separately, but they make a nice color when blended. I added some whole cilantro leaves as a last-minute garnish. I served it in a cabbage taco sprinkled with red pepper flakes as I didn't have any fish! Normally, I would grill the fish instead of batter frying."
"This would be great with just about any mexican or seafood dish! I added salt."
"Was perfect over our grilled fish tacos. My 3 yo son helped whip it up in a flash. Thanks"
"Very good sauce for our fish tacos. I did add about 1/2 teaspoon of garlic and some salt to add a little more flavor. Thanks for posting."
"This is a favorite in our house. It is so easy and adds just the right amount of flavor to fish tacos."
"This sauce was a HIT when we made catfish tacos for a crowd. The leftovers went well on traditional tacos, too. Thank you for this recipe."
"Ummm, the way it came out for me had me rereading the recipe over and over again to see where I must have made a mistake, but other than using limes, I didn't make a mistake, and this was a big disappointment. It was as green as guacamole (I'm guessing because of the limes it turned greener), the pics make it look more white. But color isnt my disappointment, but taste. I Greatly like cilantro, and couldnt taste it even a little bit. It tasted like sour cream and lime juice. Seriously. As if I ate a spoonful of sourcream with lime juice sqeezed on top. That's it. I then began adding all types of spices/ingredients to make a new creation. Some mayo, cumin, light brown sugar, pepper, steak seasoning, I mean I was comin up with all kinds of ideas of how to change this into something other than sourcream with lime juice, and it took a Lot of the above ingredients to even change the taste! That's the reason for the 1 star. Is it possible the lime over the lemon made That much of a difference??? I guess I'll only know by making it again with lemon juice. If that ever happens, I'll be sure to post the results! Maybe it was my expectations. I was expecting wayyy less lime flavor, more cilantro, and creaminess, not just the taste of sour cream. Have a blessed day in The Lord JESUS nonetheless!! :)"
"I made this as an accompanyment to shrimp fajitas and it was perfect. I did use fat free sour cream with good results. Thank you Bev for sharing the recipe."
"Wonderful, fabulous sauce for fish tacos!!!!! I used creme fraiche and this was just to die for with the fresh flavors of the cilantro and lemon!! I used 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper and I put in 1/2 tsp sugar to balance out the lemon juice because it was tart tasting and I wanted to bring out the other flavors with that lemon juice!! Used this to top recipe#116601. This is the best sauce for fish tacos, will always make this one!! Thanks!!"
"I made this for steak wraps (steak stir-fried with onions and bell peppers and served with tomato and lettuce). I think I could have used more cilantro (I didn't measure it)."
"Delicious! Really makes the fish taco. I even used this on steak fajitas I made and it was great!!"
"The best fish sauce ever !! I had to add more sour cream and even put in some cottage cheese and salsa and have an avocado in the blender. I need more than what the recipe discribed."
"This is really really good. I like to spice it up with a little serrano chili and a little salt and pepper. Thanks for the great sauce. I will never make fish tacos without it again."
"Easy & delicious! Will definitely include with tacos in the future. Thanks for sharing!"
"Made it with lite sour cream and lime juice - excellent!"
"Excellent sauce..I added taco seasoning which really added some extra flavor."
"Great! I used lime juice instead of lemon."
