I've mentioned before that I'm pretty much just obsessed with fish tacos, but I think these are my favorite yet! They're so easy, super flavorful, and they're good for you too! We've been trying to make healthier choices lately, and these fish tacos fit the bill without sacrificing on taste. We've made them twice now, and the kids ate them both times without complaining. That's a major victory in my book!
I served the tacos with crumbled queso fresco (super yum) and fresh lime juice squeezed on top. I think they would be awesome with fresh avocado too, but I didn't have any on hand. My favorite way to soften the tortillas is to spray both sides lightly with cooking spray and heat them in a frying pan until they bubble a little. If you're feeling lazy, though, the microwave does just fine.
