New Twists on Taco Night
If you like fish, you will love fish tacos. You can prepare your fish in a number of different ways for your tacos, such as:
- Beer battered fried cod or haddock
- Pan-fried red snapper
- Grilled salmon
- Grilled sea bass
Serve in warm corn tortillas with your favorite toppings, such as:
- Fresh salsa
- Sour cream or Crema Mexicana
- Chopped cabbage (warm or cold)
- Lime juice
Crema Mexicana is a cream sauce that you can use with your fish tacos. It consists of two ingredients; heavy whipping cream and sour cream. Crema Mexican needs time to thicken, so plan accordingly.
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream at room temperature
- 1/4 cup sour cream at room temperature
Pour the whipping cream into a sauce pan and heat slightly until the cream is slightly warmer than room temperature. Mix in the sour cream after removing the whipping cream from the heat.
Pour the mixture into a clean glass jar and cover the top of the jar with the lid, leaving the lid loose. Keep the jar in a warm room or oven for 4 to 12 hours. For an even thicker cream, refrigerate for another 4 to 12 hours.
If you like, you can add fresh chopped cilantro, chopped dill or the juice of a lime to your crema before serving.
