Fish Tacos

Postby bowhnter » Mon Nov 26, 2007 7:57 am

I had fish tacos at a restaurant once :shock: , swore I would never again.
Well, once my wife started talking about it, sounded pretty good and worth another try.

Fried up some Talapia and placed on a tortilla shell (to me the crunchiness of the fried fish made it)

Added on some homemade pico di gallo consisting of red onions, tomatoes, avacado, jalepenos, and a little garlic.

Topped with cheese

and enjoyed with a home made bottle of Sauvignon Blanc

The thin Tilapia that can be folded right in your tortilla makes a nice choice of fish to use.

Mike, I am like you. Tried the tacos in a restaurant once, never again. But I must say yours sure look good. Maybe frying is the answer. CF
OK, get over it, you lost. God bless America

You can never go wrong with Tilapia! Those taco's look mighty tasty! I love to pan fry tilapia with panko bread crumbs and parmesan. That would be good on a taco as well!

I love the fish tacos, those look great and Tilapia is the fish of choice! Try the fish tacos with a good flat bread or pita next time.

Every time I went to California I heard about the fish tacos but always found something else to eat.... Finally I tried one and low and behold it wasn't bad but didn't resemble Tex-Mex much like one might expect.
Anyway I like fish and this sounds good Thanks Mike.

We do fish tacos about 6 times a year. The Mrs likes Halibut for fish tacos, but for what ever reason the things are pricey.

I'm the only one around here that'll eat them. I haven't used talipia - sounds good. Got to give that a try. Yours looked good.

Hey James... nice score on the Mahimahi :) One of the better eating fishes in Hawaii. Caught them all the time off the islands.

Interested in how you prepare them in a smoker.

I picked up a bottle of Hawaiian style rub, tried it on grilled steak and porkchops and we liked it. Also seasoned a rack of reebs and bbq'd them in my practice run last weekend. The taste was there but it didn't look as good as the ones you guys and gals post. I tried to keep the "Kila Imu" at 200 to 225. Is that too low? :roll:

Hey Honu! I've never smoked MahiMahi, I was going to grill it for the tacos. I've eaten plenty of it, but this will be my first time cooking it...

Thanks James. When I smoke some salmon I'll include some mahi and also some halibut from my Alaskan trip. Don't know for sure if those fishes take kindly to smoking.

Have a great weekend... keep on Q'ing.
