La Taquiza’s fish tacos are, by far, my favorite fish tacos, to date.  Both the California (seasoned and grilled fish) and Baja (battered and fried fish) are amazing.  It’s hard to pick a favorite among the two.  Each served are on a soft corn tortilla and topped with a bit of purple cabbage, for pleasant crunch and added color.  Pico de gallo is added for more color and a nice acidity, to balance the sweet crema drizzled on top.

Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo is one of my favorite salsas.  It’s bright in both flavor and color.  It’s great for chips, nachos, and of course as a garnish on tacos.  It would also be great as a garnish for a grilled hearty white fish.  Don’t bother with the premade found at the supermarket, which often uses flavorless tomatoes.  It’s easy to make your own and get that fresh summer taste.
