Fish Tacos with Corn Salad
I have to confess that this was my first time making fish tacos. I order them all the time when we go out to eat, but I never took the plunge and made them at home. This is largely due to the fact that I’m the only one that will eat fish in my house. Therefore, a recipe needs to be super simple in order for me to make it. It doesn’t get much easier than these fish tacos with corn salad and slaw.
These fish tacos were so simple because of the Stubb’s Sweet Black Pepper Anytime Sauce. It was the perfect marinade for the haddock filets and it didn’t need to marinade all day long, which I especially loved. We are huge fans of Stubb’s Anytime Sauces because they are so easy to marinade or even top your favorite sandwich with. Plus, they’re made with real ingredients and the flavor in each is amazing. I’m particularly a huge fan of the Texas Sriracha Anytime Sauce, which I use on my wraps. A friend and I always have a tendency to clear off the shelves of it at our local grocery store. It’s just so good!
After cooking the haddock filets in the Stubb’s Sweet Black Pepper Sauce, I topped it with my Mexican Street Corn Salad. We make our Mexican Street Corn Salad at least once a week. It is a favorite to go with our Tucci Rib Recipe, which uses Stubb’s Original BBQ Sauce.
