Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos are one of my all time favourite go-to meals. It just tastes fresher and not as heavy as a regular taco. You can barbecue or fry the fish. To cut throught the spice top it off with some mango salsa, feta, and mayo or cream cheese. It makes me feel like I’m somewhere tropical to make our long winters in Ontario more bearable. Enjoy!
