Lime Grilled Fish Tacos with La Victoria® Mango Habanero Salsa
Three fish varieties for flavorful tacos.
The perfect fish taco starts with a fresh white fish. Some people like salmon or sea bass, but you really want something that’s not too aggressive. White fish, like these three varieties, are flaky, not oily and have a mild taste that’s not too overpowering.
A lean fish with mild, sweet tasting white flesh, large flakes and a firm but tender texture. Because it’s so lean it can be dried out if overcooked.
A lean, moist fish with a firm texture and a distinctive sweet, nutty flavor. It’s a versatile fish for many flavor components from mild to intense seasoning.
A sweet, mild flavor with lean flesh and a medium-firm, flaky texture. Lends itself well to all types of cooking from fried to broiled to grilled.
