Crispy Fish Taco Recipe + The Best Fish Taco in San Diego

You guys are in for a treat today!  Two treats really.

Crispy Fish Tacos

A few months ago, Jorge and I went on a hunt for the best battered fish taco in San Diego.  Given the massive amount of fish taco options available, we decided to start our search by polling friends, family and fellow foodies about their favorite spots for fish tacos.  This poll resulted in these top 3 restaurants/trucks (also vetted on Yelp): Mariscos Alex, TJ Oyster Bar and Oscar’s Mexican Seafood.  After we found a favorite fish taco, I then made my own Crispy Fish Taco recipe paired with a spicy Chipotle Crema.  This week, I’m sharing my pick for the best fish taco in SD plus my fish taco recipe over on Salt & Wind, a food and travel blog by Aida Mollenkamp.  Continue reading for photos from the hunt plus links to the winner and recipe.

Bacon and Tomato Guacamole

Bacon and Tomato Guacamole

Classic guacamole is really hard to beat.  But I’ll have to say, this Bacon and Tomato Guacamole wins out.  It’s really not that fair though.  Adding bacon to just about anything makes it better.  This recipe starts with curls of creamy, ripe avocado mashed into a coarse mess.  Crispy crumbled bacon, chopped tomato, white onion, vibrant cilantro, lime juice and smoked chipotle chiles are then mixed in to create a festive dip that is nothing short of scrumptious.  With each bite you’ll enjoy a moment of green, grassy richness cut with fresh tomato, cilantro and lime.  Pops of crunchy bacon offer a nice counter in texture and flavor, and a smokey heat, courtesy of the chipotles, is faintly present in the background.  Craveworthy to the max.  You really won’t be able to stop yourself from finishing the entire bowl.  Continue reading for the recipe.
