I saw  a package of fish taco mix once. I guess  it was some sort of topping to put on the fish taco.

I was scared of it. I don't like fish. Nope! I am willing to try just about anything, but fish tacos sound really disgusting to me.

I have tasted squid though. It was pretty good! I also tasted raw herring and onions (nieuwe haring) once in The Netherlands. It was not so good.

I just really don't like fish. :)

Yes, I love 'em AND there is a cheap good chain here in Seattle that specializes in 'em that is called TACO DEL MAR.  As ptannen says in that thread, BBM is everywhere.

I'm curious though. What kind of fish do they put on these tacos? Is it tuna? That MIGHT not be too bad.

It just doesn't sound very good to me.  It sounds like something along the lines of pickles and honey, or ketchup and strawberries. It just doesn't sound good.

If anyone has a recipe for it, I may give it a shot.

Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.  :P

I went to a Mexican restaurant Friday night, and dutifully ordered fish tacos (I now consider this a Brokie obligation, if there's no elk on the menu). This was a merely OK version. The fish tasted like fish sticks. Still, not bad. Came with a side of beans.

It could certainly be tuna, but it would have to be fresh-caught (or just off the boats). Canned tuna would be unthinkable.  :-X

These fish tacos make me think about something else I find a little scary. Fish pizza. They are selling it here in Indianapolis now (for all I know, they may have been selling it here for years). But I think it sounds really strange. Of course people do order pizzas with anchovies (I am NOT one of those people), but somehow, I don't think they are talking about anchovies when they sell fish pizza.

Fish tacos. Fish pizza. What IS the world coming to? I guess I am just an inexperienced midwestern boy. Steak and baked potato. Hamburger and french fries. We are meat and potatoes people here in Indiana.

But fish tacos and pizza. I just don't know about that. And somebody said they served beans with the fish taco? Oh wow! Fish and beans?

I'll stick with my hamburger and fries!! :)

I would -- and do -- order fish tacos, fish with beans, pizza with anchovies. But I think I would draw the line at fish pizza (though I have had pretty good pizza with shrimp, asparagus and brie! -- classic yuppie fare, I know).

Actually pizza with shrimp, asparagus and brie does sound pretty good. As long as it has asparagus tips... I don't really like the stems.

I'm glad you agree with me on the fish pizza. It's selling like crazy here, I guess. Maybe Hoosiers are beginning to wean themselves from serloin steaks! There is a pizza place near me that sells 101 different types of pizzas. This is one of the places in town where you can buy the fish pizza.

Pizza comes from Naples which is a seaside city, so fish pizza sounds right to me. How about calling it pizza de pesce? Does that grab you? Actually, what are you doing eating pizza at all if you're in Indiana? Isn't that the wonderful place where Breaking Away was filmed with (avert the eyes) Dennis Quaid? I remember the line from that movie where the Dad forbids "ini" food from being served in his house. I may have Indiana mixed up with Illinois--I'll bet that's never happened before.
May 2019 be better for us all.

Pizza de pesce? That sounds like a good name to me! I don't know how it would play out with my fellow Indianians though. They will probably continue to call it fish pizza! ;)

Yes, "Breaking Away" was filmed in and took place in Indiana... more accurately, Bloomington Indiana (Home of IU); about 50 miles down the road from  me. Yes, there are some "non-ini eating Hoosiers" (does that make sense?), but I am not one of them. I am willing to try just about anything......except fish pizza and fish tacos!  :P
