Ingredient for Fish Taco Sauce
THE BASE: Like most dips and creamy dressings, sour cream and mayonnaise create the base. For a thicker base (or a healthy boost), swap sour cream for plain Greek yogurt.
FRESH FLAVOR: Fresh lime juice adds the best flavor, bottled juices can sometimes be bitter. Cilantro is a favorite for its herbal flavor. If you can’t eat cilantro, you can use parsley in this recipe although it will change the flavor of the sauce.
SEASONING: Seasonings like cumin, garlic powder, and smoked paprika give the sauce depth. Add some cayenne pepper for heat or even a bit of Cajun seasoning.
