Fish tacos are a popular Mexican dish that is quick and easy to make. The tacos are commonly made with a mild white fish, such as Mahi Mahi or tilapia. A dollop of tangy lemon-lime yogurt sauce can add zesty flavor.
Combine the yogurt, lime juice and lemon juice in a small bowl and whisk until the juices are fully incorporated.
Add the cumin, cilantro and jalapeno and mix well. Add salt to taste.
Cover the bowl and refrigerate the sauce for at least an hour.
Serve a heaping dollop of sauce over warm fish tacos.
This recipe makes enough sauce for 8 to 10 tacos.
Before cutting the lemon and lime, warm them up by rolling them back and forth on the counter to yield more juice.
To make a hotter sauce, the jalapeno seeds.
