Fish Tacos

One of my favorite go to meals when I have to make something super quick is “Fish Tacos”. Now I’m not talking about the frozen fish you buy at the store but actual fish you buy fresh and get from the store, season it and cook it.

This is by far my favorite recipe because my mom taught me how to do it. Family recipe I must say.

Growing up fish was a must every Friday since we didn’t get to eat meat. We were catholic and so my parents would always make Fish for dinner. I have made this fish with white rice and its so delicious. I have also shared this recipe with my close friends. They loved it. I decided to make this Fish recipe into a fish taco recipe. I seriously hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
