Wahoo Green Sauce Recipe

Wahoo Green Sauce Recipe

Enjoying wahoo dishes seems impossible without green sauce. Specially for fish/wahoo tacos this wahoo green sauce recipe is, in simple words, amazing. In the summer season, when fishing becomes a crazy-like hobby, then cooking them perfectly is much more important. During last summer, me and my husband went to NC, where I discovered this sauce with wahoos salad. Literally I went mad. This tastes so good! As I got busy afterwards, I couldn’t get time to share this recipe.

Methods of Preparing Wahoo Sauce Step by Step:

Step 1: Take out a blender, and in its jar add ¼ cup of lime juice, ¼ cup of white wine vinegar, 3 tbsp of minced garlic, ½ tsp of kosher salt, and 2 tsp of sugar. 

Step 2: Blend them for 3 minutes or until completely combined and smooth. 

Step 3: Take a break for a few seconds. Start blending again on low. With the blender on, pour 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil in a steady stream. 

Step 4: After that, add ½ cup of roughly chopped cilantro in the blender jar and blend until the cilantro has completely broken down. 

You will see some texture of cilantro still remains. The little texture enhances the taste of it. You can serve it with any type of Mexican salad like greens. This sauce can be used as a marinade and trust me! The dish feels so savory with it. Many of you are not familiar with wahoo. Let me help you with this.
