South-of-the-Border Essentials: Fish Taco Sauce

Andy Anderson !


Cinco De Mayo is coming up… time to get your game on.

This is something new I came up for fish tacos.

Easy/Peasy to make, and totally compliments a good fish taco. My fav is a breaded/fried piece of cod, sliced, put into a taco shell with some pickled cabbage and drizzled with this sauce… I am including the cabbage recipe.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
