When we were planning our own night of fish tacos recently - complete with fresh corn tortillas, grilled mahi mahi, fresh salsa, and sauteed peppers and onions - we knew the meal wouldn't be complete without one thing: our own version of Wahoo's cilantro sauce. More than a year ago we did a Friday Foto recipe for Cilantro Dipping Sauce, which differs from today's recipe in important ways. Compared to the dipping sauce, which was intended for a dish such as yuca frita, today's Cilantro Sauce is more of a cilantro paste, perfect over fish, and with a different flavor profile thanks to the addition of cider vinegar and scallions.
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 lime, juiced
salt and pepper, dash each, to taste
1/3 cup olive oil
1. Blend all ingredients through and including the salt and pepper in a food processor until smooth.
2. Drizzle in the olive oil while the food processor is still going to incorporate.
3. Serve over your favorite fish tacos!
Simple, easy, fresh. Enjoy!
