Fish tacos might just be the perfect summer dish. Here they’re topped with a creamy sour cream sauce, shredded cabbage and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
2 pounds tilapia (or any firm white fish), cut into 1-inch strips
Salt and pepper to taste
12 corn tortillas
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Mexican crema or sour cream
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 1/2 cups shredded red cabbage
2 large tomatoes, chopped
2 limes, cut into wedges
Salsa or hot sauce
Dip a paper towel in a bit of olive oil and, using tongs, brush over a clean, hot grill. Season fish all over with salt and pepper and arrange on grill over medium heat. Cook, flipping once, until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, warm a few tortillas at a time by sprinkling them lightly with water and placing them on the grill. Turn tortillas frequently and transfer to a kitchen towel as done to keep warm.
Put mayonnaise, crema, and ketchup into a small bowl, mix well and set aside. When fish is done, place a few strips in each tortilla, then top with shredded cabbage, chopped tomatoes and a spoonful of the reserved sauce. Serve with lime wedges and salsa on the side.
