In honor of the upcoming Cinco De Mayo celebration, we made Grilled Fish Tacos with Rubios Sauce, all thanks to La Tortilla Factory for sending us some amazing products – like Hand Made Style Corn Tortillas, 100-Calorie Tortillas, and Soft Wrap Tortillas made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. These are some of their newest products, and we got the opportunity to try them! La Tortilla Factory is also letting us do a giveaway for our readers, so stay tuned for this in the next couple of days. For now, let us share with you a great and easy recipe for Grilled Fish Tacos with Rubios Sauce, which I found online at allrecipes.com and epicurious.com, respectively. I marinated the fish for a few hours and also made the white Rubios sauce for the tacos. Along with the fresh cabbage, cilantro, and lime, these tacos kick ass! No need to deep fry the fish like the traditional fish tacos – this is a healthier and tastier version! You will thoroughly enjoy them.
I used about 1 lb. of pollack, cut into small pieces. You can also use tilapia or any other kind of white fish. The marinade consists of: 2 tbsp distilled white vinegar, 2 tbsp fresh lime juice, 2 tsp lime zest, 1 1/2 tsp honey, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp Old Bay seafood seasoning, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper, and 1 tsp hot pepper sauce. Then whisk in 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil. Mix well and pour the entire mixture on top of the fish and let this marinate in the fridge for a few hours.
Okay, normally it's a sour cream sauce, but I didn't have sour cream on hand so forget that! I did however have plain yogurt, so I decided to make this Rubios sauce instead. To prepare the Rubios sauce, combine 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp fresh chopped dill, 1/4 tsp cayenne, juice of 1 lime, and salt to taste. Mix this together and put in the fridge for a few hours to let the flavors incorporate.
I'm not even a fan of corn tortillas because they usually taste really dry and hard to swallow. But when I tried these Corn Tortillas from La Tortilla Factory, I was really impressed. It's a mix of corn and flour, which makes it really moist and flavorful. You can get their products at Whole Foods across the nation. In any case, these were delivered to us and we made great use out of them!
Once the fish is ready to cook, we grilled them indoors on a cast iron grill since the fish was cut up into small pieces (it will fall through the cracks with our backyard grill!). If you don't have a fancy indoor grill, just pan fry it! Once the fish is cooked, assemble the tacos by lightly warming the tortillas in a pan and layering it with the fish, cabbage, cilantro, red onion, tomatoes, and the Rubio's sauce. Looks like a fiesta to me!
Since we still have the other tortillas, we are going to make another classic Mexican dish for out next post, which will include the details of the giveaway from La Tortilla Factory. You don’t want to miss it!
