The Best Fish Taco Recipe…Ever!

April 25, 2017

Cinco De Mayo is next Friday and if you know anything about me then you know that Mexican food is my number 1 love. Jamie and I go for Mexican at least 3 times a month and make Mexican-inspired food at home on a regular basis, so as you can imagine, Cinco De Mayo is my idea of the perfect day. I’ve made the fish tacos that I’m sharing here today a million times at home and let me tell you, they are so darn fresh and flavourful! I’m shocked that I haven’t gotten around to sharing this recipe yet but it’s probably because I can’t stop myself from eating the tacos before I’ve had the chance to take photos of them. I promise you, if you like fish tacos then you will LOVE these. In my opinion, this is the best fish taco recipe ever!

Sour Cream Crema
  1. 3 tbsp sour cream

For the Fish
