Spicy Fish Taco Sauce is quick, easy, and the perfect way to add a little, creamy kick to fish tacos or sandwiches.
Have you ever had Mahi fish tacos? They are one of my favorite seafood dishes. Quick, simple and fresh. I love the meatiness of the fish, the soft tortillas, the crisp slaw, and best of all the spicy fish taco sauce.
I taught myself how to make Mahi fish tacos a few years ago after moving from Miami, Florida to the west coast of Florida. The selection of fresh seafood restaurants on the west coast was drastically different from the types of restaurants on the east coast.
While learning to make the Mahi fish tacos, I decided they needed a sauce. Maybe something with a little kick. Even with all the other yummy stuff on the taco, it’s just not the same without a good sauce. I spent a ton of time looking up recipes and trying a variety of sauces. Needless to say, I didn’t like any of it.
I did what I usually do in instances such as these and enlisted John’s help. He makes some fabulous sauces, so I knew he would be able to put something together. As usual, he came to my rescue and within a couple of tries, developed this awesome spicy fish taco sauce.
This sauce is spicy yet creamy with a good depth of flavor. I call it a fish taco sauce, but it’s good on sandwiches, burgers, and even french fries. It’s super simple to make and only uses one bowl. That means less cleanup which is always a good thing. It only takes about 5-10 minutes to make and you’re done! It will last about 3-4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Used for this recipe:
- 1 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon dill
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle
- 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Keep cold in the refrigerator until ready to use.
The sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in an airtight container.
