Maybe it's Tuesday! Maybe not! It doesn't really matter. Space-time is flexible and we can enjoy tacos on a Tuesday, a Wednesday, even a Sunday. If you aren't quite sure what day it is, all the better; because these tacos are too good to be contained by any mere construct like a calendar. They are tacos for whenever the perfect moment might occur. And that moment is now.
All three of these tinned fish taco recipes take little preparation while providing tremendous satisfaction to those who eat them. So, that's nice. As an added bonus, they can be served hot or cold. Warm the fish lightly in a pan, if you wish. Or don't. They'll work either way. That's how good they are.
Also, yes. The personal favorite of this writer and therefore the top taco of the trio is technically not a fish. But, it is seafood. Fish adjacent. That counts.
Total Time: 4 minutes, 42 seconds. Or more. Or less. Again, space and time are fluid.
1. Put all of the above together in taco form, as pictured.
2. OK, a little more detail is warranted. The guacamole used here? Purchased at the local market. It's there, and it's great, so that saved a step. Making your own is of course easy enough and a very personal matter. Do what moves you. The roasted corn was also purchased roasted and perfect for the condiment it was always meant to be. The pickled red onions were made ahead of time, with brown sugar and apple cider vinegar and they are currently being used on just about everything.
Total Time: Always approximate.
1. Make that taco.
2. The spiced sauce in the tin includes olive oil, carrot, cucumber, red pepper, onion, and secret spice, so this one was kept particularly simple. Does it need something more to truly elevate it to a top tier taco? Perhaps. Recommendations being accepted now.
Total Time: So worth it.
1. The aforementioned top choice of this tremendous trio is no fish at all. You will not hold that against it. You will savor every bite.
2. This squid comes tinned in a Spanish interpretation of an American-style barbecue sauce, which is a fun conversation in its own right. Combine it with a honey mustard slaw? An unstoppable flavor force to be reckoned with.
3. The slaw is a mix of a bag of slaw (obviously), old-fashioned coarse grain mustard, honey, salt, black pepper, and a couple tablespoons of milk. Mostly following the proportions found in this recipe, with a certain disregard for actually measuring anything.
