Tacos de pescado, otherwise known as “fish tacos” originated in Baja California, Mexico where they are made of grilled or fried fish, lettuce or cabbage, and usually a mayonnaise sauce. Wildly popular in California, Colorado, Arizona, and Washington, this delicious taste treat is also made at the best family restaurant in Fort Worth, namely the Chef Point Café.
Featured on our catering menu, fish tacos as made by Chef Franson include blackened fish wrapped with cabbage slaw, diced tomatoes, onions and a Cajun mayonnaise sauce in a flour tortilla. This is truly fine dining Southern style, the equal of any fish taco you will find anywhere in the United States or Mexico.
Which leads to the question: how in the world did a Nigerian-born chef learn how to capture the taste of Mexico so perfectly with these fish tacos?
The answer may never be known. There are people among us who just have a gift for things like this, just as a great auto mechanic can tell when an engine isn’t working properly simply by listening to it. Chef Franson has that gift, whether it be cooking traditional Mexican food, Cajun food, Italian food or good old fashioned steaks and chicken American style.
Try this suggestion on for size next time you plan a family picnic or a business lunch with your staff. Take the group to a nice outdoor setting and then sit back with that “cat that ate the canary grin” when Chef Point Café wheels into the parking lot and serves up a delicious meal of fish tacos. Or surprise the family by picking up an order of fish tacos and bringing it home for dinner. Your wife or husband will be blown away by this out-of-this-world taste treat. Heck, don’t tell them that you bought it at Chef Point. Just pretend you whipped this up at the spur of the moment and watch their faces as they take the first bite of that blackened fish. We don’t think Chef Franson will care if you take credit for it, as long as he knows that you loved every morsel of the fish taco.
