For the Baja Sauce:

  • ½ cups plain yogurt
  • ½ cups mayonnaise
  • 3 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper seeded and finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ½ cups fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley finely chopped

For Fish Tacos:

  • 1 box of frozen crispy fish tenders we used Van de Kamp's
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Capers
  • Avocado diced
  • tomatoes diced
  • shredded mexican or taco cheese
  • Soft Corn or Flour Tortillas


  • For the Baja Sauce:Combine all ingredients. Set aside. (I put mine in the fridge while I prepared the rest - gives it a chance to marry all the wonderful flavors). We also made some early for photos and then again at dinner and wow... the sauce was SO much more flavorful at dinner time (2 hours later)
  • For Fish Tacos:Prepare 1-2 fish tenders per person (per taco) as directed on the back of the package. (this took 20 minutes for us) When finished, slice the fish up anyway you'd like to put it in the taco.
  • Lay a soft tortilla on a plate. Place shredded lettuce on the tortilla. Then layer the capers, avocado and tomatoes.
  • Top with the cooked fish tenders. And then drizzle the Baja sauce over all of it.
  • Eat & Enjoy!
