The white sauce recipe is pretty simple:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Topped with the salsa and shredded cabbage and you're good to go. Don't forget the Cerveza.
I use the same sauce but when I first got the recipe it seemed it was missing something after I tried it next to Rubio's sauce. I kept tweaking it until I realized what it was...simple white sugar. I add a teaspoon or so until it tastes right. We sometimes put in finely chopped cilantro in the white sauce and cut lime wedges to squeeze on the fish itself.
Oh yeah fish tacos rule!
