Gotta say, I was not a big fan of the fish taco idea when it first started getting big a few years ago. But hey, I've come around. The nice part about fish tacos is that you make them as you go, so it kind of slows you down while you're eating. That's what I tell myself, anyway. I usually think I'll eat about 3-4 of these, but it ends up being 6-8.
"These we a huge hit from my mother to my 4 year old! I took some liberties with the recipe, one due to a mistake the other with trying to work with what I had on hand. I mistakenly marinaded the fish in the sauce, which gave it great flavor! Because I then had to remake the sauce, I cut 1/2 mayo with 1/2 lt sour cream. So good! I didn't do the cabbage, and the corn I used was left over grilled corn cut off the cob. I paired the tacos with cilantro lime rice and green beans! So good! Thx for the recipe!"- lmnero

Top-ranked recipe named "Can't Stop Eating Them Fish Tacos"
Make the sauce by combining the mayo, cumin, and enough lime juice for the sauce to be the consistency you like it. Chill.
Make a simple salsa/pico by combining the onion, cilantro, corn, chilies and salt.
Crumble the fish fillets and put in a serving bowl. I like to use mahi-mahi or sea bass, but any whitefish on sale will do.
Warm the tortillas.
Set everything out and let everyone prepare their own. But I have to say, I think the order of construction here is important: Hold a warm tortilla in your hand and put the fish in first, then the shredded cabbage, then the sauce, and the salsa on top. You have to make these one at a time as you eat them.

KendraCooks 4 weeks agoWHOA no, this was all wrong...Pico doesn't have corn in it, that's not right! And Mexican food doesn't use mayonaise! My friend wanted to make this so we did but No, I will not have it again.
Sherryberry75 4 weeks agoThese tacos were delicious. I made them several months ago and have been thinking about them ever since. Making again this evening for the family. Yum. Definitely restaurant quality. I didn't use cabbage; just shredded lettuce and they were perfect.
nikkilenox 1 month agoThis is by far the best fish taco recipe ever. We fed 2 hungry teenage football players, one 7 yr old and two very happy parents. Most of the ingredients were already at home, making this affordable, quick, &....excellent!!

carlypryorwilson 1 year agoExcellent dish! I used swai (for the first time) and it grilled up great. Also added avocado and cherry tomatoes to the pico to use up some produce.
Mm07 1 year agoMade this with a twist and the entire family loved it. Add a little brown sugar and olive oil to the sauce. Chopped up pineapple ~1/4-1/2 cup and cooked with fish. Also added mexican corn (from Aldi's)
