Baja Fish Tacos – Close to Authentic

image_pdfimage_print

When I lived in Southern California, my family and I spent a lot of time in Baja.  We loved to go south of Ensenada to La Bufadora (the blow hole).  This beautiful place is located on the Punta Banda peninsula.  The sea water blasts upward from air trapped in a cave below. It has changed a lot since our visits.  The vendors were just ramshackle buildings with goods and foods.  The water was fenced with a low stone hedge and the road was dirt.  Now its a full park with constructed buildings, a restaurant and paved roads, but the taco stands are still there – and it’s still an amazing sight!

We camped at a beach nearby that had natural hot springs in the sand, vendors selling churros, fresh lobsters and tamales in the morning, and clam cocktails along the roads.  One of our favorite places to stop were the fish taco stands.

The lard was heated in the lids of big oil drums turned upside down and heated with fire in the drum itself.  Whole heads of garlic were dropped in the oil to flavor it and the fish that cooked in it.  They dipped each piece in a batter and fried it to perfection, dropped it on a fresh made tortilla and offered a variety of toppings.  Then off you went, taco in hand, to explore the other vendors on the strip.
