Fish Tacos

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a recipe for preparing fish tacos that they have had success with? I've done some web research, but was curious of what the real experts say. I prefer w/ battered walleye pieces, if anyone could share a recipe, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Coach Dog

I am not sure, as I have never used battered fish for it. I have always used fillets cooked on a flat top griddle or in a skillet with red-fish/blackened seasoning. Sounds interesting and I bet it would add a nice texture to it. I hope others have better informaton then mine

my wife's version of fish tacos is breaded fish, fried and served in a tortilla with lettuce cheese and tomato.

my version is the baja/surfer style taco. fresh tuna chunks seared and served with limes, pico, cilantro, and hot sauce on a fresh tortilla. mahimahi, marlin, or any other fresh catch are good as well. The fish is usually prepared blackened style with lots of pepper and cumin.

That recipe sounds absolutely delicious! You should be a writer for a cooking/recipe magazine as you have my mouth watering for fish tacos.

Thanks, Coach Dog

I often make Crappie tacos.

I have fried and baked them (fried taste a little better, but baked are good too)

I just set up an egg wash (seasoned flour/egg/bread crumbs). Fry them...

Wrap them in a soft taco with some cheese, cilantro, lime, coleslaw mix (gives a nice crunch) and I make a salsa/tarter sauce (basically mix tarter with salsa).

VERY GOOD (good for you too if you bake)

Campfire Tacos.............

Get some aluminum foil your going to make a campfire cooking package.

Put some salsa on the foil lay the fish on the salsa.

Sprinkle lime or lemon juice on the fish.

Close up the package and bake on the coals.

Scoop the fish and salsa on some heated soft taco shells with a little shredded cheese.

I like to make fish tacos with leftover fried fish. Flake the leftovers into grape size (or smaller) pieces and either refry with more breading or heat in the micro. Use other ingredients as already suggested.
