Loaded Ya-Ya Grouper Tacos

Fish tacos are practically synonymous with relaxed beach vacations. For many, the portable dish recalls summers spent lounging in the sand, listening to the roar of the waves and sipping a cold drink. At the Original Oyster House, we strive to capture that feeling while adding a unique Gulf Coast touch to the classic fish taco. Come visit us and find out how we do fish tacos in Gulf Shores and Mobile, AL.

When you order our Loaded Ya-Ya Grouper Tacos, you’ll get three tacos filled to capacity (we doubt you’ll leave hungry). While the fish used in a traditional Baja fish taco is breaded and fried, we take a slightly different approach that’s in keeping with our Southern roots. We start with fresh Gulf grouper, which is rubbed with Joe and Dave’s special seasoning and then blackened, resulting in a smoky flavor and crispy texture. Then we add the blackened grouper, fresh iceberg lettuce, diced tomatoes, and shredded cheese to soft flour tortillas and top everything with our signature Ya-Ya sauce.

What’s Ya-Ya sauce? It’s a spicy Cajun-inspired blend of seasonings—including chili powder, garlic, Tabasco sauce, and cayenne pepper—with a mayonnaise base. It adds a memorable jolt to our fish tacos and is best enjoyed with a glass of iced tea or a cold beer. To help balance out the spiciness, we also serve our grouper tacos with a side of homemade mango salsa.

No matter how many fish tacos you’ve had before, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by our one-of-a-kind blackened grouper tacos. We know you have a lot of dining choices along Alabama’s Gulf Coast, and we strive to go above and beyond with our food and customer service to make your visit not just worthwhile, but unforgettable.
