A*M*A*Z*I*N*G fish tacos. I had a serious craving for fish tacos (definitely not the first thing I want when craving something,) and these more than delivered. I marinated in a large ziplock and then removed from the marinade and baked, covered at 450 F for 10 minutes rather than grill them (I'll try grilling come summer.) The only change I made was using chipotle chile powder in the marinade (so omitted hot sauce,) because I didn't have regular chile powder, and hot chile powder in the sauce (so skipped pepper and didn't think it needed salt, so skipped that, too). As per other reviewers, I only used just under 1/4 cup of liquid (just the liquid) from the chipotle peppers and I'm glad I did. Initially I thought had I ruined the sauce. But letting the flavours marry for six hours (as long as I let the fish marinate) "corrected" the taste and it turned out lovely. I think that is the secret to this sauce. You just can't make it right before serving the fish. It'll be too sour (from the lime) and adob-o-ish. These were spicy but in my subjective opinion, not crazy spicy. Maybe because I topped them with a fresh tomato/avocado salsa (3 large tomatoes diced, 2 avocados diced, 1/2 red onion finely chopped, 1 small red chile, seeded and minced, juice of 1 lime, 1 tbsp white wine vinegar, 1 small bunch cilantro chopped) mix and marinate for a few hours. Everything together = OM*G. Especially so with a lime margarita. :0) Thank you, thank you, Mabcat!
