The History of Fish Tacos
This is the first in a series of posts on the history of fish tacos.
First off, I want to say that fish tacos are one of my favorite things. I love them with any kind of salsa, but I also like them with cream cheese, sour cream, and guacamole — which sounds weird, but it’s so good. 🙂
Also, for your well being: don’t eat too many after working out! These are great for breakfast or lunch — just be careful if you have any other issues with blood sugar control and you have to eat fish tacos after working out!
Now on to this post about what goes with fish tacos.
A huge amount of research has been done into what goes in a fish taco. For example, some studies have shown that tomato paste and ketchup help increase the number of calories in a taco while others show no difference. A study from Nutrition Science showed that both contain water and none of them add calories to the taco. The only thing that really matters is saltiness — how much salt should you use?
Here’s a chart showing what goes into a taco at two different places:
…and here’s another one:
The next question we need to ask is “what should go in there?” The list below shows just a few ideas based on some common ingredients (for more examples see here). This isn’t an exhaustive list by any means; there are tons more ideas out there! But again, these are just some ideas that commonly appear in all sorts of food recipes – sorta like “if you put this ingredient in this place it will make it taste good”:
So, once we can figure out what goes into our tacos (which is easy enough since we know how much salt we need), how should we go about making it? There are lots of different ways to do it and so many shortcuts as well; let me highlight two methods that work pretty well for me as they seem equally effective: marinating (or soaking) the fish overnight and then grilling or baking it (see recipe below). But again don’t worry about making your own tortillas – most stores sell premade ones ready-made from corn meal flour (which is pretty cheap!). You can also make your own tortilla by putting flour and water together and kneading until you have a dough. Either way, let us know how it works
How to Make Fish Tacos
Fish tacos are delicious, but they are also a bit tricky to make. There are many different ways to make them, because each recipe uses a different type of fish, or a different combination of ingredients.
However the most popular way is to use the same type of fish — whitefish or flounder — and add lime juice and some lime zest to the cream sauce. This makes the taco sweeter and more tangy than without it. The trick is to not add much lime juice at all. It is enough to give it an initial spark of flavor, but then let it simmer away on the back burner for some time before serving. We call this recipe “Fish Taco No Lime Juice” (FTNLJ), because we do not add any lime juice at all.
The FTNLJ is a great way to get your tacos on! In fact, we believe that FTNLJ is one of the best ways in which you can enjoy tacos: no need for extra toppings or sauces, just nice fresh fish with some lime juice sloshing around in your tummy!
Why Fish Tacos are So Popular
Fish tacos are a delicious, popular dish from Mexico and the US, with an increasingly large number of dishes that can be made in the same way. It is a familiar dish to all who love Mexican food. The question is why fish tacos seem so popular.
Well, firstly, you could say that it’s because those kind of tacos are delicious and almost always are served with guacamole (which is very tasty too). Secondly, it is similar to the taste of many other foods that also appear on this list: a good balance between crunchiness and warmth.
Thirdly, they are common enough that they easily get thrown into your grocery cart with things like tortillas and sour cream (which has nothing to do with fish tacos). What could be better than that?
But then there are some other ingredients which can come together to make tasty combinations:
• Freshly-squeezed lime juice
• Salsa Verde
• Cabbage (and possibly other greens)
• Flour tortilla— either white or corn— for wrapping up the taco in rectangles or triangles
If you have tried making these snacks yourself you will understand how easy it is to make these combinations work: just put them all together (it’s not rocket science), add some fresh salsa verde for some fresh flavor and heat if wanted, then top with some cabbage if desired. Fish tacos can be made from any kind of fish or even pork; but I am partial to anchovies as they seem more delicate and mouthwatering. So please don’t feel like you have to choose just one — enjoy them all!
A Fish Taco Recipe
Any good taco recipe has a few key ingredients you should be familiar with, such as corn tortillas, salsa (any kind), and cream sauce. But what goes with fish?
This is a tricky question because fish tacos are traditionally served on top of lettuce, which is also very popular in the United States. But it is not our preferred vessel for tacos. Our preferred vessel is rice or fruit, but sometimes we do just get a little rice or fruit on the side if we’re feeling lazy. The most important ingredient in any good taco recipe is the fish, and in particular, white fish like tuna or salmon.
In this post I’m going to show you how to make simple taco filling from white fish meat and provide simple instructions on how to make salsa, cream sauce, and a homemade corn tortilla by any means necessary. These are all things you can easily purchase at your local grocery store — as well as other easy-to-find ingredients like cream cheese and limes — so forget about fancy food stores for this one!
How to Pair Fish Tacos with Beer and Other Drinks
When people think about food, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a meal. Sure, you can go out to eat and order a burger or some chicken wings, but when you’re talking about food, it’s more likely that you’ll be talking about what goes with it.
In this post on the topic of pairing fish tacos with beer and other drinks , I have put together a list of vendors whose products would go great with tacos. Some are obvious like tacos being Mexican fare (which means they are authentic), while others don’t fit the category so well. This is just my own personal taste in product-market fit: however the examples are presented here, they all represent possibilities for pairing different types of beverages with your fish tacos.
Of course, if you have your own suggestions for pairing beer and fish tacos, please let me know in the comments!
What goes with fish tacos? I know a lot of people who eat fish tacos all the time. But I haven’t had them in a while, and it’s been a while since I had them.
What does this have to do with our product? We use fish tacos as the metaphor for product-market fit.
The way we use the product is very different from what most people think of when they think of a company’s value proposition; more like what most companies do when they talk about software. And yet, if you take a close look at the history of software, it almost always started as something else originally… Think about email, web pages, word processors, or even spreadsheets: products that were originally for other things (such as manufacturing) and then became something else again once there was demand (like the desktop).
By contrast, we are asking users to use our product for some new purpose — to solve some new pain point, or extend capabilities they already have today (or to create new ones).
So, we need to make sure that our customers can actually see how much benefit they get from using our product in their lives — and how much value is gained by doing so — before we can convince them that they want to stick with us. For example:
• If a customer comes into your office and complains about how hard it is to find information on a particular topic on your website (or jumps through hoops trying to find information), you wouldn’t undervalue this feedback and would probably react favorably towards it; but you wouldn’t draw attention away from it because you believe that “a few clicks around the corner will buy you more time” (and if you don’t have any relevant information yet, chances are that you still won’t buy anything). This is where market research can come in handy. It gives feedback on your value proposition which helps inform decisions around features/designs; but also helps understand whether there are issues which require additional attention — like possibly an API or third party marketing material. In other words: market research allows us to focus on solving problems which will make us money rather than worrying too much about those which don’t. What goes with fish tacos? In short: The most people who eat fish tacos tend to be new users who want something easier than traditional menus and menus usually aren’t too complicated anyway (so why would they want one?).
