Lime Crema for Tacos is a versatile sauce for fish and shrimp tacos. Made with Greek yogurt makes the sauce light and bright.
It’s a great addition to Mexican and tortilla soups. This Lime Crema will cool down any spicy dish.
By substituting Greek yogurt for sour cream, you save on calories, saturated fat, and sodium. As well, you get a healthy amount of protein. As far as flavor goes, it has a similar flavor and texture as sour cream.
- I made this recipe for my Caribbean Jamaican Jerk Fish Tacos, but you can put it on any of my fish taco recipes, Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa, Fish Tacos with Mango Coconut Lime Salsa, and Fish Tacos.
- This cream is also great on wraps, tortilla soup or chili.
- Also, I used Greek yogurt, but you can use sour cream.
- As well, I don’t recommend using bottled lime juice. It tastes much better with fresh.
