Fish Taco Sauce

White sauce for fish with a yogurt and mayo base balanced with spices and herbs and fresh lime juice.

This recipe for a zesty and flavorful Fish Taco Sauce is a perfect blend of creamy and spicy elements, ideal for adding a punch of flavor to your dishes. The base of the sauce is a combination of plain Greek yogurt and mayonnaise, creating a creamy and smooth texture. The acidity and freshness from the juice of one lime cut through the creaminess, providing a nice balance. The sauce is then elevated with an array of spices and flavors: minced jalapeno pepper for a spicy kick, capers for a tangy edge, and a mix of ground cayenne pepper, dried oregano, ground cumin, and dried dill for a complex and aromatic depth. Once all the ingredients are mixed well, the sauce is refrigerated for at least 30 minutes. This resting period allows the flavors to meld together, enhancing the overall taste. This versatile sauce can be used as a dip, spread, or dressing, adding a unique and delicious twist to any meal.
