Cilantro Sauce for Fish Tacos
This bright, cilantro-forward sauce is the perfect complement to fish tacos! The cumin adds richness and depth, while the thyme enhances the herbal notes and gives it something unique.
- 1 cup moderately packed cilantro (thick stems cut off)
- ½ teaspoon cumin
- ½ cup sour cream
- 5 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon picked thyme leaves
- 3 green onions
- 4 tablespoons lime juice
- pinch of salt
- piece of chili pepper (optional)
Trim the roots and upper loose leaves off the green onions, then cut into 1” pieces. Peel the garlic.
Put everything in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If necessary, add a bit of water to loosen the sauce and allow it to blend.
Taste and add more cumin, salt, or lime juice if necessary.
