If you are like me, I try to eat fish at least once a week. Ideally, I should be eating fish twice a week as they are a good source of high-quality protein.

But with so many different kinds of recipes to make, I already find it hard enough to eat fish once a week!

One of the easiest and quickest ways to get some fish into your weekly menu is making some fish tacos. Sure I would love some Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon or some Confetti Salmon Steaks but I don’t always have time during the week.

Since I usually use Tilapia or Halibut when I make fish tacos, I can tell you that this fish sauce pairs perfectly with these 2 types of fish.

I’m sure it would go great with other types of fish but have not had a chance to try it on anything else yet.

One of the beauties of this spicy sauce recipe is that the heat mostly comes from the Sriracha. You can add more or less depending on your taste buds.

Since we love our food to have a kick, I usually “pour” a heavy teaspoon of Sriracha when making this sauce.

Sriracha Hot Sauce originated in Thailand. It’s typically made with chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. In the United States, Sriracha sauce is manufactured by Huy Fong Foods.

It’s sometimes called Rooster Sauce because of the rooster logo on the bottle.

If you don’t have any Greek yogurt on hand you can substitute it for some sour cream. Not as healthy as plain Greek yogurt but it is similar in consistency and will still give you the desired results.

This sauce recipe yields a little over a cup which should be good for about 6 fish tacos but depending on how much sauce you put on yours, you might get more or fewer tacos.

    The ingredients list plain yogurt but step number one mentions sour cream. Which one is it?

    1. Rodney says:

      Thanks for pointing that out. I updated the recipe for clarification. As I mention in the post, you can substitute the yogurt for an equal amount of sour cream. I’ve made it both ways and equally delicious. My wife prefers the yogurt version as it’s a little healthier.
