Default Guts' Pico de Gallo

Guts calls this "salsa", but salsa is generally cooked and more of a sauce.

This is raw and more of a relish.

I love it! I used half a pint of cherry tomatoes this time, and add the juice of half a lime

Great with tortilla chips and on fish tacos.

That looks great! That's pretty much how I make mine. I usually use red wine vinegar for the acid instead of lime juice and no jalapenos for moi. The smell of cilantro makes me swoon , love the stuff.

Andy, I use plum tomatoes, but don't peel them - just seed and chop small. I squeeze a lime in there, too. And I just add a pinch of salt, not 1 1/2 teas.

That sounds fantastic. I had fish tacos for the first time this winter in Park City and wasn't sure what the fish was and never asked because the place was so busy.

This spring I made them with black rock fish I caught last summer at Westport but they turned out to be more like a huge burrito since I had so much on the tortilla. I like a soft taco.

With that said, what kind of fish do you use? The commissary had fresh catfish fillets and was thinking about doing something with catfish. I have rock fish left but I am the only one that eats it - I could use ling cod I imagine.

I made a "relish" similar to yours but I add chopped green olives, too. There are so many ways one could go with this.

Johnny, the best fish tacos I've made have been with haddock or cod, and SilverSage's tempura batter (you can search here on "fish tacos").

But, frying battered fish is messy and smelly, so when I'm lazy, I also make them with frozen Van de Kamp's fried haddock or Gorton's Italian and Herb filets which I bake in the oven.

I will be using Van de Kamp's battered haddock this week. I, too, prefer soft tacos, flour tortillas, and I put sour cream, fish, pico, packaged cole slaw (no dressing), and shredded cheese on them.

Tried avocado, too, but that was just TOO much! :-)

I have the tempura batter recipe bookmarked.

I love frying fish and have a cast iron skillet collection I use - the skillets looks so nice after the hot oil treatment.

I love pan fried cod, halibut and snapper - heck, I love all fish.
