Baja Style Fish Tacos

While growing up in California my parent would always take us to Baja California on short weekend trips. I loved going to a little town called Ensenda. We mostly went for the fish tacos at the little stands at the port. They were the amazingly good. Well with all the drug violence I stopped crossing the border and the last time I was their was maybe 8 years ago. Well I really miss authentic mexican food and can't find anything that is really great in this area. I have been craving fish tacos but didn't know how to make the sauce and I after many attempts I came up with my own and I am so excited all I need is the warm salty air hitting my face. Sorry the pictures are horrible.
