Fish Tacos

Another Monday is upon us and the good thing about today is that I have an amazing Fish Taco recipe for you! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. I am a little underwhelmed with this time change. Maybe more so for the fact that we hosted game night on Saturday and once all was said and done we weren’t in bed until around 4am. Then was up again around 8 to get the kids up and ready for Sunday school.

I always tell myself that I will do nothing and just lay around and have it actually be lazy Sunday. Yeah, never happens. I’m a doer at heart and I couldn’t help but cook and bake all day. That’s just how I do. Maybe one day I’ll be able to just sit and relax and not have to feel like I need to always do something, one day…I keep telling myself that. But in my insistent need to make things all the time, these amazing Fish Tacos were on the menu this weekend!

Fish Taco Recipe

So we went out to eat at a local restaurant for my mother-on-laws birthday on Friday and my sister-in-law got their Walleye Tacos. Obviously being the family that we are, we share food. Those things were so awesome that I knew I had to recreate them. Unfortunately I’m not on a walleye budget, so I decided to use delicious fresh tilapia instead.

Now normally I am not a fish eater, yes I know it’s weird, but I almost hate all forms of seafood besides a select few. So luckily I tried her fish tacos otherwise I would have missed the deliciousness that these bad boys came with. 

Fish Taco Sauce

So after some diligent research into their menu I had a game plan and went from there. The cumin honey are essential to this fish taco recipe!! Seriously, I never would have thought to put the two flavors together, but they work SO WELL. Add some cabbage, pico and chipotle ranch and you have yourself one heavenly fish taco. After this I have converted myself into the sometime fish lover catergory. What are some of your fave ways to eat fish tacos?
