Fish Taco's with Chili Lime Sauce with an Italian Kick!

We just loved these, the first time we tried them! I couldn't wait to duplicate them the way we like ours! They turned out much better than we had at a local eatery~


Chili Sauce filling:
1/2 cup light sour cream
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 clove of minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon each basil and parsley
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of hot sauce

Fish:
1 lb Haddock or other white fish filet, cod, or flounder 4 small filets
canola oil for frying

Seasoned flour:
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
sea salt and pepper to taste

1  package taco shells, warmed or flour tortillas

Toppings:
shredded cabbage or lettuce
chopped tomato
chopped green peppers raw
salsa
 mashed avocado
 extra sour cream


Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, spices, lime juice and hot sauce, mix in small bowl  together and set aside for spreading inside the flour tortilla.

In a plastic bag add flour and seasonings, shake fish, till well coated. Fry in canola oil till crispy and browned. Drain on paper towels and prepare the tortilla fillings.
Layer sauce, lettuce, tomato and peppers on the tortilla. Add fish inside taco.
Top with salsa, mashed avocado, sour cream or more hot sauce and cilantro.

I always like when you can make something better at home then when you go out. Make it to suit your tastes and enjoy is my motto!

You've put out some great seafood recently and this is another. We love fish tacos and the chili lime sauce sounds super good

Few things inspire me like finding a plan for something that I can just taste by looking at it. I'll do this in a shallow fry and toast my tacos right on my gas burners. You've helped make my day.

Wow, this is so innovative! I've not seen fish wrapped in taco. LOL! My son loves fish & chips. Will try taco instead of chips next time, a healthier choice.

Looove these, would satisfy any fish taco craving! I know some people that are put off by the idea of fish tacos, but really, that just leaves more for us, right? haha

Drick said...

Love your fish tacos with the Italian spice "twist". Would not be able to order this in any restaurant, for sure. The sauce is incredible, as well!
A must make for sure:d

That spicy lime sauce really does up the ante for this fish taco. No wonder you wanted to recreate it. I've seen so many fish tacos that just did not sing to me - but this sings arias.

Great way to enjoy some fish tacos!

Your new background is great.

Tina said...

Looks like you have been making up a tasty fusion dish-the italian spices and the cayenne. Makes for a unique, and I am sure, tasty taco. Nice that you put that big filet in there-no skimping on the fish--Yum!
