While i wouldn't turn slayers dish down, its not a fish taco, its walleye smothered in Tex Mex.

My ol man lives down in San Felipe, Baja California. The taco stands there are my favorite place to grub.

And if you want REAL fish tacos. Make them out of one of these

corbina. one of the finest table fares, and one of the easiest catches. agreed it will make a fine taco. traditionally our tacos come equipped with a thin avocado sauce, a sour cream sauce. A cabbage slaw, and pico. folded into 2 corn tortillas. fucking great!


Its a different kind of Sea bass than corbina , closer to a white sea bass. I was miss led by my friend for two visits when these pics were taken until on the third year I learned what the fish really was, it is a Totoaba which if you do your research, you will see it is probably the most exploited fish in history due the Asians appetite for making soup out of the bladders.
My friend would take the fish and roast them whole on a grill stuffed with a seviche type veggie mix. the grill was made out of a metal 50 gallon drum. The whole neighborhood comes over and everybody just grabs a tortilla and grabs a chunk of meat and vegies off the fish with the tortilla, no plates spoons or forks. freaken awesome. the liquor store in that neighborhood sells tecate for the equivalent of 3 bucks a 6 pick they put the six pack in a plastic sack,fill it with ice for you.
I go down there around christmas, those people don't have much and don't really exchange gifts but they are so happy during christams and know how to have one hell of a good time, they have a big ol parade and fourth of july style fireworks in town on christmas eve. Chrfistmas lights are a big deal, its like status symbol of thier house is totally decked with lights.

Heres a pic of a corbina


Here is my friends back yard and he is considered wealthy.
