Fish Taco Recipe – Easy and Quick

There was a time when I never had a fish taco, nor did I even want to try one. After all, aren’t tacos supposed to be beef?

But at some point last year, my boss showed up with a few fish tacos from a local carry-out… and man was I hooked! (No pun intended).

Crispy fish, creamy sauce, crunchy cabbage, and some spice all in a handy tortilla! Wow, what an eye-opener!

At this point I feel I should say that here in Maryland, near the beach, we are just a bit far away from the California beach towns that are the home base for fish tacos, fish taco trucks, and other fish taco establishments.

So I hope you’ll forgive me for being late to the party.

How to make Smash Burgers 101

Smash Burgers recipe is so simple

Smash burgers are so simple to make. They are basically the home version of greasy-spoon, diner style burgers.

Smashed thin on a flat-top griddle or cast iron pan, and dressed simply to your choice of toppings.

We will NOT criticize you for adding ketchup / catsup. Smash burgers are very personal so do what you like!

You will need:

Some ground beef – I like 85/15.

Some seasoning – I used Morton’s Nature’s Seasons which is basically a salt pepper garlic blend with added herbs and spices. (*any* seasoning will do)

Cheese is optional.

Sautéed onions are optional too.

Small squares of parchment paper or wax paper (foil will do in a pinch)

A quality bun (I like Maier’s Kaiser Rolls).

Technique:

– pre-heat skillet / flat top to medium high heat

– Season small pats of meat with your choice of seasonings

– roll small patties into balls slightly bigger than a golf ball

– place balls o’ meat onto skillet or flat top

– cover with paper and smash super thin

– remove paper

– cook until juices protrude through top of patties

– flip patties and cook until done

– assemble onto buns, add condiments of choice, and enjoy your 2am diner style burger!

Final Step:

Eat and enjoy!
