Fishy Tacos


I have to admit, I had some problems with this one. The cream sauce was wonderful, I got it from the Food Network. But i had some problems with the fish, it lost its flavor with the cream sauce... any ideas on how to give it a better flavor? But it was still good and my husband liked it, of course its no Pedros (which my brother in law got me hooked on).

Fish Batter-
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1-2 cup buttermilk

Cream Sauce:
- 1/3 cup mayonaise
- 2/3 cup sour cream
- Zest from 1 lemon
- 2 tbls fresh lemon juice
- water (to get to the consistancy you like)
- Salt and Pepper

Fish Tacos:
- Oil (for frying)
- 2 lbs skinned halibut in strips
- Corn tortillas
- shredded cabbage

For the Batter- Whisk flour, salt, pepper and buttermilk (to a pancake like consistency) in a bowl. Set aside and let rest for 15 mins

For Cream Sauce- Add mayonaise, sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice and water (optional) into a bowl. Season to taste with Salt and Pepper.

For the Fish- In a large skillet, add enough oil to make 1 inch thick. Heat to 350 degrees. Dip fish pieces in batter and fry in hot oil until golden brown, about 5 mins. Transfer to paper towel to drain. Make tacos with Corn tortillas, fish, shredded cabbage and cream.


  1. Daniel and I eat fish tacos regularly (using fish sticks often) and for our cream sauce I use the following:

    -Just a couple T of mayo
    -3/4 C sour cream
    -Lime juice instead of lemon juice
    -2 tsp cajun seasoning
    -Cayenne pepper to taste

    Our cajun seasoning has salt in it, so I don't add any extra salt. If you don't have cajun seasoning, maybe add some onion & garlic powder with cayenne pepper. Hope that helps!

  2. THANK YOU!!! i will try that next time!
