Catch the Competition at the 6th Annual Fish Taco Cook-Off

Posted by The Oregon Coast / April 18, 2014


Lincoln City, OR – The 6th Annual Fish Taco Cook-Off will take place Saturday, May 3, 2014 from 11:00am – 2:00pm at the Culinary Center in Lincoln City, located at 801 SW Hwy 101, on the fourth floor.

Restaurants competing for the title of Best Fish Taco this year include J’s Fish and Chips, Nelscott Café and the new Taft’s Catering of Lincoln City, Bay 839 of Newport, and Pelican Pub and Brewery of Pacific City.  Pelican Pub and Brewery has won the last three consecutive Cook-Offs at the Culinary Center, which have included Jambalaya, Chowder and Wild Mushroom.  A win at the Fish Taco Cook-Off would give them a clean sweep, a feat that has never been accomplished.

While not an official entry into the competition, Culinary Center Executive Chef Sharon Wiest will also be offering up her own dish, a Wild Albacore Tuna Taco, sponsored by the Oregon Albacore Commission, which will be prepared front and center on the demonstration stage.

“I am very excited to showcase Oregon’s Wild Albacore Tuna,” said Wiest.  “While the tuna run takes place from July through October, the Oregon fleet of fisherman now have the ability to freeze it almost immediately upon catch, which means we get to enjoy this fabulous product all year round.”

Festival guests will determine the best fish taco through people’s choice voting.  Admission is free and fish tacos are available for $1.50 each.  Local beer and wine will be provided by Nelscott Wine Shop, and Captain Dan’s Pirate Pastry Shop and My Petite Sweet will offer up sweet treats to enjoy.  Eugene, OR musician Mark Alan will also entertain the crowd with his original sound and style.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the best fish tacos in Lincoln City – prepared by some of the best chefs on the Oregon Coast.
