Typical toppings include guacamole or coleslaw, cilantro, a mild, medium, or spicy salsa, avocado and a freshly sliced lime served on a hard corn shell or a soft flour tortilla. There are many types of fish in the sea, feel free to experiment and try as many as you can, either fried or grilled!
Grilled fish can provide a delicious char taste to a light tasting taco. Try pairing the roasted flavour of the grilled fish with an amber ale. Depending on your heat tolerance you might want to go bold with a spicier salsa. Make sure to select a hop-heavy IPA to really accentuate the spices without becoming overwhelming. The citrusy hop flavours will add a touch of sweetness to your meal, as well.
Deciding to fry your fish opens up more possibilities for your beer pairing, because how delicious does a beer-battered fish taco sound? Whether you are using it in the batter or pairing it with the meal, two good options are a citrusy wheat beer or a traditional cerveza. The floral notes of a wheat beer will add its own flavour to your taco and will match very nicely with a freshly squeezed lime. Pairing your tacos with a cerveza will allow the beer to cut through the fried batter and act as a palate cleanser, making your next bite just as good as your first.
Fish tacos are not only delicious but they are extremely versatile with unlimited recipes and combinations for beer pairings.
