Recipe Fish Tacos Style Cove

One of my favourite moments when I visit Ensenada in Baja California, is when to make a stop on the road from Tijuana to Ensenada to enjoy some good fish tacos. There are many restaurants, and that I can talk to you another day, but today I want to share the recipe closer to the original of these famous tacos. Looking forward to enjoy it as much as I do, because every time I do, I travel for a bit, and bite to bite, to Baja California.

Place in a bowl the salt, eggs, oil, salt and pepper, beer, brandy and flour. Beat perfectly, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes while you prepare the dressing and the sauce.

For the dressing, mix the mayonnaise, lemon juice, cream, milk, and salt and pepper. Refrigerate until serving time.

For the sauce cook the tomatoes in a saucepan of boiling water until they are soft, but not undone, between 5 and 8 minutes. Grind them along with the garlic, marjoram, vinegar, sugar and salt. Reserve until serving time.

Remove the layer from the refrigerator and add the egg whites in surround. Dip one by one the fish fillets and fry in a pan with hot oil. Remove excess fat with paper towels and cut the fillets into pieces.

To build the tacos, place on the tortillas, the slices of fish filet, and add the dressing, salsa and cabbage to taste.

The sauce can also be a pico de gallo.
