Fish tacos have become all the rage in recent years and are a specialty of the Pacific coast of Southern California and Mexico. This is a simple recipe: all the components can be made ahead of time and the fish grilled at the last moment. You can also use halibut, sea bass or tilapia in place of the salmon.

These were excellent! After removing the citrus segments I squeezed the remaining juice into the bowl. I would recommend squeezing the juice out into a separate bowl for a different purpose because there was too much liquid in my salsa. I added cayenne to my salmon spice. For us two oranges and one lime were enough for the salsa. Read More

Better to just have lime wedges on the side for those who want it. For the Cilantro Creme - I added a small clove of garlic pressed fine and mixed well - a nice lift Read More
