Is there anything else? I'll either bake the fish or cook it in the skillet.
You might as well cook him a piece of fish and serve him that. Because it wonít be a taco. I would cook whatever and let him figure it out. I canít stand picky eaters. I bet if he didnít eat for a week he would eat whatever you set him in front of him.


You can try sour cream and mix it with lime or lemon juice and some sugar. Thatís what I use. But a taco without all the things you mentioned is nothing more than a piece of fried fish.

We use shredded cabbage on our fish tacos. We serve a spicy white sauce with it but leave that up to the individual. I love fish so I really don't see a problem with just fish on a taco.

We have a Kiwanis club in town that serves fish tacos at fairs that consist of a fish filet, wrapped in a corn tortilla with chopped cabbage. That's it. Salsa for those that ask. They sell hundreds.

That's pretty close to what I had, except I added pickle relish and didn't use sugar. I put cabbage and that sauce on mine. The fish was baked, though.



DH gets his own breakfast, lunch, and snacks, so he wouldn't starve. I didn't mean to make him sound bad; I just think it's funny that he thought I could cook without any of those basic things people cook with.

DH had fish and lettuce. For lunch today he made himself one with the leftovers.


Next time I'll plan ahead and try beans.

If it's seasoned well enough it should only need minimal toppings.

I mean you're making fish tacos and the guy doesn't like literally anything on a taco...

So give him a piece of fish, tortilla and call it a day.
