In this recipe, I do not batter or deep fry the fish -- but everything else about it is Baja Style. We are looking to enjoy the flavor of the fish, un-adulterated. Small pieces of white fish can be quickly grilled on our 11x11 Grill Pan, or pan-fried in any of our Frying Pans. This can be done without oil if you choose in either pan. If you prefer, you can also vapor cook it by putting it on low heat and adding the lid. This makes the fish more moist and flaky, without the browning and grill marks. Either way, delicious fish meat is moments away with which to stuff those tacos!
Start by prepping your ingredients. A big platter of red cabbage, diced tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and lime wedges will set you up for digging in once the tacos come off the stovetop. Now prepare your Crema. This sauce really makes the taco pop with creamy flavor. There are dozens of methods, some involving emulsification and so on, but this is just a delicious way to quickly whip up a batch that will be very pleasing without a huge time investment. Blend those ingredients together well in a bowl and you are ready to go.
Now grill or pan fry or vapor cook the white fish. Once it is cooked, you can either shred it, or dice it, or serve it in long wedges. Any of these will work great when stuffing your taco. Okay, you may have noticed this is not white fish. Good point. I had some other fish on hand and used it. Point being, it doesn't really matter. Cook some fish. Make some tacos. It's all good.
My husband likes to pan fry the corn tortillas until they are crispy. Put a small (very small) amount of oil in the pan and heat it to medium high. Apply the tortilla and it will sizzle a bit. Once it is slightly crispy, turn it and do the other side. Don't leave it too long as it will become hard and break when you try to bend it. Just a minute or two each side should make it warm and mildly crispy. If you are using cheese, apply it to the side you've just cooked. It will melt quickly to the surface of the tortilla.
Now you are ready to stuff them with fish, vegetables, add a squeeze of lime and a dollop of the crema and enjoy!
Enjoy this delicious recipe for fish tacos in any season, grilled indoors. It is a healthy, fresh meal particularly nice for a summer evening.
