Originally I created this creamy avocado sauce a few years ago in search for the perfect, rich and flavorful sauce for pan-seared salmon. After *many* failed attempts, I was finally able to come up with a light, yet flavorful sauce we just can’t seem to get enough of. And I’ll be honest most of the throw-away ideas really sucked. Since then, we’ve been using avocado sauce at the ultimate, creamy fish taco sauce.
Avocado sauce is the perfect topping for ANY fish taco. Blackened fish tacos or shrimp tacos, just to name of a few of my own. That said, you can top this on just about any fish recipe not called taco.
Creamy avocado sauce is a magical fish taco sauce made with avocado, fresh basil, olive oil, cream, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. The avocado adds a fresh taste and creamy texture, while the basil, lemon, and garlic pack the sauce with so much flavor.
How to Make Creamy Avocado Sauce
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Sometimes you need to add a little extra cream or a splash of water or more olive oil to get the consistency just right. It’s probably best a little thinner for fish tacos so you can easily drizzle it.
Don’t have a blender? A Ninja single serve or NutriBullet works too.Print
