I get this extreme sense of gratification and pride when I create a meal that was home grown or in this case, freshly caught. Now I shouldn’t feel this way about these tacos because I was not the one who caught the Halibut, my little brother was. However I did create a pretty damn good meal out of the fish!
Halibut is a wonderful thick flaky fish, and it’s almost a sin to deep fry it because of the price, but because my little bro sent me home with so much (and it was free) I felt a little bit less guilty. Cod and pollock haddock make great alternatives to the halibut for frying.
This is a great summer meal and would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo. The chipotle tartar sauce adds a nice kick. Serve it with some shredded cabbage and salsa and you have one killer fish taco. Don’t forget to crack open a beer! If you are planning a Cinco de Mayo party, check out my Fiesta Board on Pinterest for some great ideas and recipes.
Or, if fish tacos aren’t your thing, serve the fish with some crispy fries for a delicious fish and chips meal! Any way you serve this fish, you are going to have some happy eaters.
