How To Make Fish Taco White Sauce
Make the perfect creamy, spicy sauce for a garnish when you learn how to make fish taco white sauce. Fried or grilled fish tacos are delectable when you spread a spoonful of fish taco white sauce on the tortilla and cover it with fried or grilled fish. Another way to use fish taco white sauce is to cover the fish with a generous spoonful of it or just serve the white sauce on the side.
To make fish taco white sauce, you will need:
- 1 cup sour cream
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Combine sour cream and mayonnaise in a bowl. Mix until smooth.
- Cut a lime into four wedges. Squeeze the juice from each wedge into a separate bowl and remove any seeds. Pour the lime juice into the bowl with the sour cream and mayonnaise and mix.
- Add spices. Add the hot sauce, chili powder and salt to the cream mixture and mix thoroughly, then serve.
To make a lighter fish taco white sauce, substitute plain yogurt for the mayonnaise. To make a stronger fish taco white sauce, add finely chopped white or green onions and chopped jalapeno chili peppers. Serve the sauce on fish tacos.
Use care not to overspice the sauce. Not everyone likes or can tolerate heavy spices so give your dinner guests the option to add their own fish taco white sauce and spices.
