I tried fish tacos once at this restaurant called Captain's Quarters in Louisville. I don't know if the wrong chef was working in the kitchen that day, or if I just wasn't feeling it, but those fish tacos definitely did not leave a good impression in my memory.
The idea of fish tacos always seemed appealing to me though, because I love Mexican flavors and I love fish. It makes sense that they naturally would taste great together.
So with a fresh piece of mahi mahi in the refrigerator, we decided we'd give making homemade fish tacos a whirl. Thank goodness, these were much better the second time I tried them!
This recipe was really easy to make. We got it from a free i-phone app called Big Oven.

- 1 jalapeno pepper coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
- hot sauce (duh)
- sour cream (none for me, thanks)

- green onion thinly sliced
- cilantro leaves chopped
