My kids weren’t always fans of fish. Until I made fish tacos. Apparently, being able to wrap your fish in a warm tortilla and pile on whatever toppings you want was a game-changer for them.
What I love about this recipe:
- You mix up your own easy spice mixture to coat the fish (no packets of store-bought seasoning needed).
- It involves less than 20 minutes of hands-on time.
- The lime-cilantro crema sauce. So yummy.
- Everyone can customize their own taco, so everyone is happy. (And it goes without saying, but if your kids want different toppings than those listed here –like shredded cheese and salsa–go for it!)
When a Real Mom Nutrition reader made this recipe, she left this comment on my Facebook page: “We officially have a new favorite dinner. Made them last night with fresh, homemade corn tortillas. Oh my! My 4yo scarfed down an entire plate of seconds. Before I had a chance to taste mine, she said to me, ‘Do you even know how good these are?!???'”
Time-Saving Tip: Mix up the spice mixture and the crema in the morning so it’s all ready to go for dinner prep.
Money-Saving Tip: Look for smoked paprika in the ethnic foods aisle at the grocery store. Spices there are typically way less expensive than those in the traditional spice aisle.
