In my opinion, the best fish tacos in Salt Lake City are at Lone Star Taqueria. Sunset Magazine agreed a few years ago, naming them the best tacos in the West. Their other food is very good, too. I used to live a few blocks away from them and went often, but unfortunately I hardly ever get over there now.
The fish is not breaded and fried, but instead is broiled. I personally prefer that, but that’s not why I love the tacos – it’s the seasonings and the delicious cilantro-jalapeño sauce.
Fortunately, Sunset Magazine printed the recipe, and you can find it here.
Grab some corn tortillas and top them with the cooked fish, cilantro-jalapeño mayonnaise, some shredded cabbage (essential!), and some pico de gallo. Squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice over the top, and you’ll be in heaven. I cooked the fish on the grill. Yum.
I was going to have beer with it, but instead decided to give the 2007 Honig Sauvignon Blanc a try. It was certainly drinkable, but we both agreed that we preferred the 2006. The 2007 is a lot fruitier (grapefruit, I thought), and not quite as smooth and light as the 2006.
Carole, we waited for you, but you didn’t show up so we had to eat your tacos. Sorry about that.
