Easy Fish Taco Sauce

“Easy Fish Taco Sauce” 

Creating an easy fish taco sauce is a great way to spice up a boring fish taco.  One of my favorites is an easy fish taco sauce that is unique, but familiar, a signature easy fish taco sauce of mine-the Coconut lime sauce!

For a while I was calling it a “Limon Colada Sauce,” which might sound a little bit exotic and fancy, but the truth is out of all the easy fish taco sauce recipes I have tried, this has to be one of the easiest of the easy fish taco sauce recipes.

First, start out with a coconut concentrate product, such as a pina colada base from the drink section of the store. For this easy fish taco sauce you will need a nice thick sweet coconut base, so don’t use coconut extract or coconut rum or anything like that.

Next, add some fresh lime juice.  Fresh is the best, so regardless if I’m making an easy fish taco sauce or anything else that calls for lemon or lime juice-I always use fresh squeezed (that I usually squeeze myself). 

As far as ingredients go, that’s it.  But if you want to add a little more of a lime flavor to your easy fish taco sauce you can take some of the zest off of the lime and add that to the mixture too.  I use a microplane to do this so that it is very fine and easily mixes in.

Lastly, just mix the coconut base and lime juice (and zest if you decide to use it) together till is mixed thoroughly and there you have it, an easy fish taco sauce.  A unique and flavorful easy fish taco sauce too.
