Fish Tacos. They changed my life!

I have recently been asked by several people to post my fish taco recipe. I do have it posted here, in my Menu Plan Monday post, but thought they were great enough to not have to share the limelight! – pun intended.

Prepared for your life to be changed. These tacos are amazing. If you haven’t ever tried fish tacos before, don’t scrunch up your nose. Instead, grab some fish fillets, tortillas, lime, cilantro, shredded cabbage and avocados and brace your self!

This is a modified recipe from a long-time friend of mine.
The fish tacos of all fish tacos!

  1. I seldom drop comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here Fish Tacos.
    They changed my life! | This RD Eats!. And I do have a few
    questions for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be simply me or does it appear like some of these responses come across like they
    are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting
    on additional online social sites, I’d like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
