So as it turns out, my wife absolutely loves my fish tacos. I’ve been working on different sauces to go on these taco’s lately and finally found a keeper that will be my new go to when it comes to the topper that brings our tacos together. It’s a very simple recipe that requires a few fresh, canned, and pre-packaged ingredients so a little prep work before the meal is unfortunately required. Good for us though, it is completely worth it. It is also good for just a condiment so there are other opportunities for this recipe than just for tacos. Like most of my recipes, I rarely include the actual measurements. That is for you to figure out on your own to make this recipes yours.
Cream Sauce for fish or Fish Tacos
- Fresh Cilantro
- Plain Yogurt
- Canned Corn
- Spicy Chipotle Mayo (However, fresh diced Chipotle peppers or just your favorite hot sauce would probably work as well)
- Fresh lettuce, spinach, or any garden variety greens
- Lime Juice
As you can see, a little prep work is required. Now this all comes together pretty easily so there isn’t a lot of instruction needed. To start things off, dice up the cilantro and fresh greens pretty evenly. I like to leave my greens a little bigger because I like to see them in the sauce on top of the fish. It just sort of adds to the appeal maybe….I don’t know…. At least my wife hasn’t complained about it yet so I keep doing it. Next, scoop the yogurt and mayo into a small mixing bowl. Then, combine the fresh cilantro, greens, lime juice, and canned corn. Stir it all up until it is well mixed, then place it in the fridge for an hour or so. For an extra kick, you can also add tomatoes and cheese to the sauce as well.
It’s a nice combo to mix the cold cream sauce on top of warm fish. We recently just made this sauce for salmon and shrimp tacos in our house. It seems every time I make this sauce, there is none left to clean up at the end. Hopefully you will enjoy this sauce as much as we do! If you do, let me know and post a comment!
