Default Fish tacos.... cut up or whole filets?

When you make fish tacos do you cut the filets up or not?

Depends on fillet size, if they fit there is no need to cut'em up.
Cut to fit tortillas before cooking so as to have all the fillet covered in batter and so they don't fall apart so easily.

i almost always use red fish and cut the fillets in about 1" x 3" pcs. either grilled or fried they are great with purple cabbage and
chuey's dip/sauce. google chuey's quick sauce, you'll love it.

My homemade Mexican White Jalapeno sauce is da'bomb for fish tacos.

Lightly sautee 1C each of chopped fresh jalapeno, chopped onion and 1T minced garlic in butter
Add 1C each cream cheese and sour cream and simmer for 5-10 minutes
Salt to taste
You can use alone or mix with grated cabbage for topping tacos.

Cut it up. Marinade of olive oil, garlic in a jar, tequila and sea salt...Yum!

Cut in small nugget like pieces fried. Buttermilk and Tonys in one Ziploc, and Zatarans in the other. I love fried fish tacos with all the fixins that normal tacos would get, but substitute coleslaw in the place of lettuce. Pretty hard to beat.

For me, it depends on if I'm frying or blackening the fish. If frying, I cut the fish into strips/nuggets. When blackening, I tend to leave them as a whole fillet, or in large portions to make it easier to handle in the skillet.

Damm! I like the Mr. Piercfh on having coleslaw in place of lettuce (or cabbage)! Great idea...I will try it next time!

Cilantro gets lost in this sauce.
Better as a condiment in it's own right, chopped cilantro, minced chiles toreados and a squeeze of lime are favorites for fish tacos.
