Reposting as it's tonight's dinner! YUM! FISH TACOS with SPICY SAUCE

Incredible Fish Taco's

Do you have someone in your family who looks at you like you are crazy when you say you want to have fish taco's?  I have a family member who quote;  "Doesn't like seafood"  who went crazy over these fish taco's last week.  I made grilled fish and grilled chicken to give a choice of fillings, but once she tried the fish she remarked it 'doesn't even taste like fish' - which basically meant they aren't 'fishy' - just good!  The sauce is what I love most of all.  It really brings this together!  It's a hodge podge mixture of 4 different recipe idea's, but the end result was a 'keeper'.

Fish Taco's with Spicy Sauce

1/4 c olive oil
2 T white vinegar
2 T lime juice
zest from 1 lime
1 1/2 t honey
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 t cumin
1/2 t chili powder
1 t Old Bay seasoning
1/2 t pepper
1 t hot pepper sauce of your choice
1 pound fish - cod, tilipia, etc.  (something cheap)

Whisk the ingredients for the marinade together, put in a Ziploc Baggy (or whatever you use to marinate) and add the fish.  Refrigerate at least 6-8 hours, flipping every now and then so it's all covered equally.

While it marinates, make the dressing.

heaping 1/2 c sour cream
heaping 1/2 c mayonnaise
2 T lime juice
1/2 teaspoon each of oregano, dill weed, cumin, chipotle powder and ground or crushed coriander
2 small jalapenos, chopped fine (you can use less if you really hate spicy dressings)
2 t dried cilantro or parsley
5 drops of sucralose or about 1/2 teaspoon sugar or splenda

Whisk ingredients together and refrigerate until it's serving time.

Grill your fish until flaky and done.  This is usually about 10 minutes.  Serve the sliced fish with sides of the sauce, shredded cabbage, diced tomato, guacamole, and extra lime slices if you wish.  Enjoy!

I like to marinate in a ziploc as it's easy to flip and mix

The fish, sauce and cabbage come together... just right.
