Made using swordfish. Added about four tbs minced shallot to the processor to make a more traditional chimichurri. Served with CL's cabbage slaw from the same "Taco!Taco!" article.
I didn't care for this recipe at all. Way too "blah" for me. I'll continue to use cajun seasoning for my fish tacos.
Good recipe, but next time will use soft flour tortillas.
where is the rest of the recipe??? you would never just take the fish, dump it on a tortilla, and eat it, just like that. there are toppings...did i miss something in the recipe?
The brightness of all the herbs really accented the fish here. I used mackerel instead of halibut with great results. I paired the fish with salsa verde and they tasted great together.
The marinade is awesome. I had rockfish on hand so used that. I used the leftovers the next day as a lettuce wrap. You can really taste the fish without the corn tortillas.
These were quite tasty, though the chimichurri was not at all like the one I usually make to go with beef. But these fish tacos were the best part of the Taco Party menu; I made the whole thing. A squirt of citrus after cooking brightens them nicely. Yummy with the slaw and pineapple salsa piled on to the tortillas - and flour tortillas were MUCH better than corn, IMO. The whole menu is a really nice, easy-to-make-ahead menu for a summer afternoon.
This looks delicious! I have a great breading mix (that's gluten-free) that I used to use to make fish sticks with mahi-mahi. This would also make great healthy fish tacos. Now I make it with tofu "cheese', as described here. http://reciperenovator.com/special-diets/vegan/gluten-free-vegan-fish-tacos/
Good base to build on. I had a small piece of Halibut so I gave this recipe a try. I had never made Chimichurri before but quickly realized that is basically a parsley pesto. After making it I tasted it and thought it was a bit one note in flavor. Sitting right next to my food processor was a basket with some Mandarin oranges in it. I grabbed a small one and juiced it into the marinade. It really added a great flavor. I marinaded then cubed the meat and cooked it quickly in a grill pan searing all six sides. I ate it with some good salsa and lettuce and really enjoyed it. As I said earlier this recipe can become a great base to go in many different directions with sides or additions.
