Fish Tacos with Pickled Purple Cabbage Salsa #weekdaysupper


All you need to add a ton of flavor to fish tacos is this slightly spicy and tangy pickled salsa.
If you've ever wondered how to make your own  fermented cabbage aka sauerkraut I've got good news  for you, it's crazy simple. In fact, it's perfect for the beginner when it comes to fermenting or pickling. It's practically fool proof, requires minimal ingredients and a mason jar and lasts for months and months in the fridge at your disposal for adding flavor and beneficial probiotics to lots of foods. 


Let's start with tacos shall we?

At any decent Taqueria here in Phoenix you will find a little salsa bar with Pico de Gallo, red chile sauce and pickled salsa. Usually it's a combination of pickled carrots, onions and plenty of jalapeños but I love the sharp tangy flavor of pickled purple cabbage when it comes to fish tacos. 

It's so simple to make a big jar of pickled salsa and you can throw in just about any vegetables you want. For step by step instructions and amazing health benefits of fermented foods click here
