My husband and I both love a good fish taco, and when we can make them at home, it is even better – better for multiple people, better for our budget, and better for individual tastes. The toughest part is finding that signature white sauce that restaurants always serve with their tacos that make them so flavorful. After playing around at home with a couple different recipes, and adding my own spin on things, I found what seemed to be the perfect blend of flavors that everyone loved. It was quick and simple – great for a busy mom of 3!
2 TB fresh lime juice
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 TB Sriracha hot sauce
1/2 TB chili paste
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon – ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground chili pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Mix together the lime juice, sour cream, mayo and Greek yogurt; the consistency should be saucy and easy to pour. Add the rest of the ingredients, adding more of the spices if you like a bit more of a kick.
I served this with our fish tacos and a cilantro lime dressing, which complimented this baja sauce fabulously. I will update this with a link to the recipe for the dressing when that post is complete. The entire recipe served 5 tacos, and we had plenty left over. It keeps well, as long as it is refrigerated, and is a great dip for veggies if you want a quick snack the next day!
