A Tropical Relish Perfect for Fish Tacos
I love tacos. Who doesn’t? And my favorite taco in San Francisco is the Taco Tropical over at Loló on Valencia St. While not your traditional taco, these panko-crusted shrimp tacos are served in a thin crisp jicama shell with pineapple relish and chipotle aioli, topped with cilantro and pickled onions. It’s the perfect flavor and texture balance!
Because imitation is the best from of flattering, I decided to recreate the recipe as the perfect addition to our new summer menu. This recipe took lots of painstaking recipe research on my part. I had to visit Loló several times…eating tacos and drinking margaritas. It was tough! Luckily my hard work paid off. These tacos photographed below, as a mini version, made the perfect passed appetizer for last night’s cooking event.
This pineapple and tomato relish is perfect for shrimp or fish tacos. It is equally as tasty on a piece of streamed white fish or grilled chicken. A nice piece of avocado would be the perfect addition too!
