Fish Tacos & Other Seafood Dishes More Characteristic to the Coastal Region of Mexico

Given Mexico’s abundant coastline, it is no surprise that seafood plays a big role in its culinary tradition. Stretching from the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of California to the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, Mexico boasts a rich diversity of marine life. This, coupled with a culinary tradition deeply rooted in fresh, local produce, results in a seafood cuisine that is as diverse as it is delicious. Today, Eddie’s Mexican Restaurant would like to highlight how seafood is a huge part of traditional Mexican cuisine.

Wealth of Seafood Options

The variety of seafood in Mexican cooking is abundant. Fish, shrimp, octopus, crab, clams, and oysters are all common ingredients, prepared in an many different methods that highlight their freshness and natural flavors. Whether it is lightly battered and fried for Baja-style fish tacos, grilled over charcoal for a beach side barbecue, simmered in a spicy tomato based broth for a hearty seafood stew, or served raw in a zesty, lime-soaked ceviche, each preparation speaks to the culinary traditions of its respective region.

Regional Specialties

Pacific Coast – On the Pacific coast, the state of Baja California is famous for its fish tacos. Typically, a piece of locally caught fish is coated in a light beer batter, fried until golden, and served in a soft corn tortilla with a spicy slaw and creamy sauce. It’s the perfect blend of textures and flavors, crunchy, soft, spicy, tangy, and completely delicious.
Gulf of Mexico – The Gulf of Mexico, particularly the state of Veracruz, is known for its “Arroz a la Tumbada” a kind of Mexican seafood dish. This dish features a variety of seafood, including shrimp, crab, and various types of fish, cooked with rice, tomatoes, onions, and a perfect combination of spices.
Caribbean Coast – Along the Caribbean coast, particularly in the Yucatan Peninsula, the focus shifts to tropical flavors. Ceviche, a dish of raw seafood marinated in citrus juices, typically lime, is a popular choice. The seafood, often a mix of fish, shrimp, and octopus, is “cooked” in the acid of the lime juice and combined with fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and sometimes a kick of spicy habanero pepper.

Seafood in Mexico is More than Just a Meal

Seafood in Mexico is more than just a meal. It’s a deeply ingrained part of the country’s culture. It is the fresh shrimp tacos enjoyed by the beach, the communal pot of seafood stew shared among family, the late night fish ceviche that hits just the right spot. It is a testament to the country’s rich natural resources, the diversity of its regional cuisines, and the ingenuity of its people.
