Tequila Lime Fish Tacos

Tequila Lime Fish Tacos

Several weeks ago, I put out a call for recipe ideas on my Facebook page. I loved seeing all the fun and unique recipes you all enjoy! It has inspired me on what to fix for supper (or dinner, depending on what part of the country you live in). Especially on those days when I am just really not sure what to make, it’s nice having a resource to go to. So thanks for that! 

This week I want to share a recipe inspired by Leslie.

Fish tacos!

Tequila Lime Fish Tacos Full Size-3

For those of y’all who don’t live on a coast, fish tacos probably aren’t a thing. But I love me some delicious fish tacos. This tequila lime marinade is perfection in my book when it comes to fish tacos. Top with some feta or cotija cheese, cabbage, and salsa of your choice! 

For the fish, feel free to use any mild white fish. I used halibut but have also used striped bass or I think even walleye would work too! I have also used this recipe for chicken if you aren’t a fish person.

    Fish tacos! I love the idea. I’m planning to host a Mexican dinner soon and will definitely include this as part of the dinner.
