Damn, that's better than anything I've seen at Rubio's. Great effort by Ayersian.

I just love the original fish tacos at Berryhill's Tamale House located on Westheimer near River Oaks in Houston. Just the right amount of crunch plus a wonderful sauce drizzled over the fish and cabbage and cilantro all on a soft corn double tortilla. Try the pork tamales and lemonade, too! The Reverend Billy F Gibbons of ZZ Top is a regular, so it's got to be prety good.

I agree with that. Thank you. I will try that recipe.

I make a great cabbage salsa with finely shredded cabbage, tomato, cilantro, red onion, minced jalapenos, garlic and lime juice and I'm thinking it would be just the thing to dress a fish taco with. That, and some chipotle mayo. The kids have never had a fish taco and think it sounds gross but they love that cabbage salsa and would probably eat it.

I'm a big fan of fish tacos having been introduced to them on the west coast for the first time 8 years ago. I make them at home and serve them up with a mango salsa.

The cucumber is a surprising salsa ingredient, but it add a wonderful refreshing coolness to the salsa that compliments the fruit and is a foil to the fire. There's not much tomato in this since the mango/cucumber are replacing it's function. You can substitue in and out chili's depending on your taste and heat preference.

1 ripe mango diced
I cucumber, skinned, seeded, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 small tomato, seeded, diced
1 habanero chili, seeded (really helps take heat out and let the flavor come through)
2 jalapeno chili's, seeded too.
4-5 stems cilantro, leaves minced
juice 1 lime
dash or two of black pepper
Salt to taste

Best to let the flavors meld in the fridge for a good hour before use. The mangos being ripe and tender really only give this salsa a shelf life of 2-3 days before the texture starts breaking down.

Although it is sort of a chain (family owned I think, but there are a handful of locations), my favorite fish taco is served by Taco Nazo in the Los Angeles area. The one I've visited twice is on Valley Blvd (just east of I-605, south side of Valley). I love their shrimp tacos too. Their crema sauce (is that what you call it?) is smooth and tangy. I really enjoy Rubio's and Wahoos, but Taco Nazo is my favorite.

I was in SoCal in late May and drove right by Taco Nazo locations near Baldwin Park. I tried to find one but my gps (we named her Lola) didn't seem to take me down the right road! Since I was in a bit of a hurry, I thought I would try again when I was back in the area 2 days later. Unfortunately, my work load was increased and there was no time for Taco Nazo.

I will return!

No good places serving fish tacos in Knoxville that I know about...I should ask Sundancer if he knows of any. Tijuana Taco is gone. Blue Coast Burrito is gone. Moe's tried fish for a while, but no more.

There was a great fish taco place in the Memphis area, Booyas Burritos. Stopped by there a few months ago....out of business. Times are tough.

The best fish tacos on the planet hands down are at Taco Nazo in La Puente CA on Valley Blvd. I have been going there for 15 years and they never fail. They are so good that back in 2000 my friends and I made our limo stop there on the way to prom so we could get dinner. The girls were upset that they had to stop in the middle of the "ghetto" on prom night. The fish is always big and juicy, the batter fries up perfect, and the crema is outstanding. Rubios and Wahoos have NOTHING on this place. Its actually blasphemy to even suggest they have something on NAZO. I am moving to the south for work and considered not going because they dont have Nazo there...thats how addicting they are.

YES!  This is the Taco Nazo I have visited I think.  It is the best fish taco I've ever had.  Now I wasn't trying to say Rubio's or Wahoos have anything on Taco Nazo, but if I am hungry, and I see a Rubios, and there's no Taco Nazo nearby, I WILL go in and I WILL enjoy my fish tacos at Rubios...even Wahoos.  I really like the rice at Wahoo's by the way.  But you are right, Taco Nazo is the best.

I was in SoCal the week of Jan 12, and I was able to enjoy Fish Tacos twice.  Once was a fairly nice sit down restaurant called La Casuelas Terraza in Palm Springs, CA.  I tried a dish called Pescado Achiote Tacos.  I think it was cod baked in a blend of spices and annatto seeds.  I don't even know what annatto seeds are!  But it was very good.  I also ordered their Fiesta Guacamole.  It was great!  Chips and salsa were very good...not the best, but freshly made and fresh tasting.

Later that week, I tried to stop by a Taco Nazo in the Anaheim area.  I found it on my  GPS but when I got there it had become a Senor Baja, a competitor of Taco Nazo.  It was good, both fish and shrimp tacos, but not as good as Taco Nazo.  I like Senor Baja better than Rubios or Wahoos.

This past year, on the family vacation to Destin, we caught a bunch of amberjack.  We made lots of fish tacos, while we were there, and since we got back, with the fish from the freezer.  Sprinkled heavily with spices, and grilled, it's excellent stuff.

many times in restaurants, they are made with tilapia, which is just too mild and soft for me; (and cheap for the chef to buy)  I like a fish with some meatiness to it.  Amberjack worked nicely.

There is a place here in St. Louis called Bar Louie, in Kirkwood, that also has an excellent fish taco; if you ask, they will make it with grilled salmon.  Tasty!

Guy, that salmon taco DOES sound tasty! Although... I have never had the pleasure of eating amberjack.

Anybody been to Best Fish Tacos in Ensenada in Los Feliz?  I read some good stuff about it.  I'll have to try it on my next trip in late February.

wow, all the recipe's look great, been using Costco talapia for other dishes, can't wait to try them in taco's, thanks for the ideas.

Jose Peppers in KC has pretty good fish taco's on their menu, also shrimp taco's but they're not as good in my book

I found some excellent Fish Tacos at the 42nd Street Cafe in Long Beach, Washington..  3 tacos filled with perfectly cooked freshly caught Rock Fish, Pico De Gallo and Red Cabbage. I liked the fact the tacos were simple,  using fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked and very tasty.

The only good fish tacos I have ever had have been on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. They were lightly fried and with the perfect chipotle mayo. Been trying to find some to live up to them but it is quite hard in Ohio.

The only place I've ever seen fish tacos was at Taco Del Mar in and around Seattle. Never had one though, I was too hooked on the beef and pork burritos. Now I think I'm willing to try one, but haven't seen any around here, so I'll have to make them myself.

The best fish taco I've ever had was at Pure Taqueria in Atlanta. Last weekend had mesquite grilled Talipia fish tacos at Margarita Grill in Pelham, Alabama. The smoke flavor really made them special.

Gekko, welcome to Roadfood! Like many things I read about here, that require a long trip, I must learn to make my own. Or... maybe you should start a fish taco stand in the UK? :~)

I've never had a fish taco but would love to try one so does anyone know where i can go for a good fish taco in england?

Buy some fish and chips, a pack of corn tortillias, fry them in a little oil, fold them over right out of the oil, add some chopped red onions, tomatoes, lettice, chopped cilantro, grated cheddar cheese or a Mexican blend, add the fish, first of course, maybe some hot sauce if you like, voila, a fish taco ala Great Britain, come to think of it add the chips on top, chips being french fries I believe!

   Well now, I would argue that cabbage and some sort of white sauce + salsa and corn tortillas define
fish tacos. They can be any variety of seafood, but preferably a whitefish of some type, breaded or not, , deep fried, boiled, steamed, grilled, + whatever south of the border
toppings you want to add.
   Tomatoes, cilantro, onions and avocados are typical around here.
    loved in SF too.

I ate a fish taco at an outdoor arts market, for the first time about two months ago, and it was wonderful -  It was a piece of grilled fish nestled in a bed of cole slaw (made with purple cabbage), on a small corn tortilla.  It had a little kick to it, and I asked the vendor what he used to give the little spice to it, he mentioned he made a remoulade sauce for the cole slaw.  

I figure this how it was done - fish cooked on the grill - a small corn tortilla heated on the grill and the cole slaw made using a white remoulade sauce, seems like a pretty simple thing to do at home.  He was also making shrimp tacos too.  I mentioned this on the cole slaw forum, as it seems like the remoulade would be good just as a cole slaw dressing.

I've never been able to undestand why anyone would want to ruin both good fish and good tacos by putting them together.

I know it sounds strange Michael. But you really need to try one before you can understand it. If you like fish you will love Fish Tacos...Russ
