News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Aug. 18, 2017: Soft or hard-shell tacos are Mexican in origin but I see them as the “canvas” fit for a Caribbean twist.
For example, they are great for breakfast, snacks , lunch or supper, filled with Ackee and codfish, or codfish salad topped with salsa, or Escoveitched Fish, Jerk Chicken Or Jerk Pork, Fish Fillet or Shrimp.
Today I will share with you the recipe for Soft Jerk King Fish Fillet Taco.
2 large King Fish Steaks
1 tsp dry Jerk Seasoning
1 tsp wet Jerk Seasoning
2 tsp Lime Juice

1/2 cup grated Goat cheese

Rest for 20 minutes.
Flake fish in small pieces.
In each soft shell taco, add lettuce (shredded)
Add 3 tsp salsa
