National Fish Taco Day

Published on January 4, 2023

A favourite that swept across the USA and to Canada and beyond, National Fish Taco day falls on January 25th. To mark the occasion, let’s take a look at how this dish came to be!

Catch of the Day

While most people point to Baja California as the place where fish tacos became the lightly battered fare that we know today, they originate in the coastal areas of Mexico going several hundred years back where the fisherman would wrap their catches in stone ground tortillas. Seafood is a prominent cuisine in these areas, pair with ingredients such as chiles, herbs and corn. In fact, dishes such as fresh ceviche and guachiles hail from these regions too. There’s also speculation that fish tacos may have been influence by Japanese tempura.

Celebrate with Quesada

You know we had to create our own version! Our Chile lime fish is tilapia dusted with rice flour, with a distinct blend of spices and lime.  We suggest the best way to enjoy our fish tacos is in a hard or soft taco shell, with house made guac, our cilantro lime sour cream and Mexican Street Slaw, finished with additional toppings of your choosing!
