These tacos have quickly become one of the regulars in my monthly meal plan. They are quick, light and flavorful...perfect for summer when no one wants to turn on the oven!
I put all different types of toppings on depending on what I have in my fridge at the moment, but some of my favorites are a light cabbage slaw, corn, roasted onions and peppers, salsa and lime of course :). Serve with brown rice and beans and you have yourself a fab meal.
(This is a cooking light recipe)
All you do is make your spice mix, coat the fish, cook in a skillet and you are ready to eat!
While the fish cooks I assemble my toppings and heat my tortillas. I break the fish up into pieces to put into the tacos and then set everything on the table for a "build your own taco night." Yum!
