(Lincoln City, Oregon) - A fiesta awaits those heading to the central Oregon coast this month, as April 30 brings the 8th Annual Fish Taco Cook-Off. From 11 am to 2 pm, to the Culinary Center in Lincoln City, professional chefs from around the region will compete for the title of best fish tacos on the Oregon Coast. Back after a 4 year break, Mist Restaurant, located at the oceanfront Surftides Resort, will be competing at the Cook-Off. Executive Chef Jason Jobe is looking forward to participating this year.

"I am very excited about competing on behalf of Mist," said Jobe. "We recently unveiled a new menu, and will be expanding it as the restaurant grows. The Cook-Off is a great way to get exposure for the restaurant and showcase our new menu."

Jobe said they will be using the recipe on their menu at this fine, feast o' fish.

"I will be making a grilled cod taco with a cabbage cilantro slaw, chipotle aioli, topped off with fresh pico de gallo," Jobe said. "We also put a lot of love into preparing each fish taco, which is what sets ours apart from other restaurants."

Fresh-made fish tacos from Mist Restaurant will be available at the event, and from other Oregon coast restaurants. Taste tacos from each participant, then vote for your favorite for the Peoples Choice Award.

Admission to the Cook-Off is free with fish tacos available for $1.50 each.
