I Love Fish Tacos

Remember this post? Yeah, well I didn't win that recipe contest, either. And I don't love fish tacos, but these were both pretty good.

I made two varieties of tacos using Gorton's frozen fish products and Ortega taco shells. The ones pictured below are chipotle honey-glazed popcorn shrimp with guacamole, mango salsa, coconut crema, and cilantro on flour tortillas.


These are grilled salmon fillets with corn salsa, bacon salsa, cilantro, and a peanut butter crema on crunchy corn tortillas. I don't even need to tell you that the bacon salsa and peanut butter crema were DA BOMB.


While they were terrific on the salmon, they were even better on the popcorn shrimp. Recipes for all of the various sauces are below.
