Fish Tacos

Among fish tacos the most popular one is the grilled or deep fried shrimp taco. This is a favorite among many and nobody would want to miss a chance of having this dish. The taste of the shrimp fried or grilled in Mexican spices and served with fresh vegetable and guacamole is delicious.

Empanada

Another popular dish is fish quesadillas. These can also be called empanada because the techniques used to make these two are the same. These are very popular in the Tex-Mex line of restaurants. To prepare this dish they use dough which is made of maize or corn, and then stuff it with fish and other Mexican spices. It is then deep fried. This dish is normally served with the Mexican salsa or guacamole. Salsa and guacamole are known worldwide as the perfect combination with all Mexican dishes.
