Fish Tacos

This a meal that I make often. It is very convenient, and I love the way it tastes. I would compare the taste to Rubio's fish tacos. The lemon cream sauce is what makes this meal. I like to buy any kind of breaded white fish, to knock of some time in preparation. However, if you are not wanting to use a breaded white fish (I use Trident brand fish sticks), these tacos are equally good with grilled salmon or any other grilled fish. Sometimes we have this meal with beans and rice, sometimes we just have the tacos. It really does taste like something you get from a restaurant.

Fish Tacos

White breaded fish or high quality fish sticks
corn tortillas
salsa (homemade or store bought)
finely chopped cabbage (about 1 1/2 c.)

1/2 c. mayo
1/4 c. sour cream
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon (or enough to fit your taste)
1/3 c. milk (add more or less to get it to dressing consistency)
1/4 tsp. pepper
3 splashes of hot sauce
1/2 tsp salt (adjust to your tastes)

Cook fish in oven according to package directions. Mix sauce ingredients all together, and set aside. Warm tortillas in microwave so they don't crack. To assemble the taco, place fish on tortilla, then cabbage, then salsa, then white sauce.

No way?! Eric and I have been trying out fish taco recipes and decided we wanted to try one with a breaded fish (just bought some fish sticks) and a nice, creamy sauce. I am trying this out for sure!
