Epic Fish Tacos

I'm going to try taking a stab at posting some food-related posts, since I have a ton of pictures on my computer from dishes I've made over the past few months.

I'm starting with some GREAT recipes, that have been some of the most enjoyable dishes I have ever tasted and prepared. I found the recipe for these Epic Fish Tacos on Pinterest - it has been a great source of inspiration for food. And believe me, they're epic for a reason. When you marry crunchy watercress, with a flaky-fresh cut of Chilean Sea Bass, then add a tangy-spicy sauce and top that with fresh guacamole...it's epic.

Serves 2

4 small filets of white fish, cut into inch wide strips *SS: I used Chilean Sea Bass
1 handful of cilantro
2 cloves garlic 
1 lime, juiced 
6 tbsp EVOO
1 large pinch of rock salt 

1 avocado
1/4 red onion, finely chopped 
1/2 lime, juiced 
1 handful of cilantro, finely chopped
6 cherry tomatoes, finely chopped
1 big pinch of rock salt 

2 tbsp mayonaise
3 tbsp sour cream *SS: use creme freche if you're watching your calories
4 tbsp hot sauce

Use a pestle and mortar to crush up your cilantro, garlic, lime and salt. Keep crushing until everything is combined and fragrant. Add your olive oil, stir and pour over your fish. Flip them around in their salty bath and leave them to stand for a moment.

Now move on to your guacamole. Use a fork to loosely mash your avocado. Mix it together your red onion, cilantro, cherry tomatoes, lime and salt.

Leave this on the side and start heating your frying pan (use a griddle pan if you have one). When it starts to smoke, turn it down to a medium heat and add your fish. Move onto the sauce while your fish is grilling. Mix together all of the sauce ingredients until you have an even colored sauce.

After a couple minutes, flip your fish and cook for the same amount of time on the other side. When you're done, take the fish out of the pan and let it drain on a plate covered with a paper towel. Now it's time to build your taco! Start with the tortilla wrap, then added the watercress, then the fish, then the guacamole and finally the sauce. Enjoy!


  1. I LOVE tacos...I hate being allergic to fish :(

    ...& the recipe has the word "epic" in it...I'm kinda sad. LOL

  2. Oh, these tacos sound amazing! I wish you were closer because we could share some fish recipes. I've been tearing Pinterst up lately for recipes, especially since I've been on a fish kick. Yum Yum.
