It seems fish tacos are quite a popular dish. I see them all over the blogosphere and on lots of restaurant menus, but for a long time they just sounded kind of gross to me. I think part of it was my childhood fear of seafood rearing its head – growing up in Indiana and being served lots of things that should definitely not be called seafood, I think the fear was justified. Now that I know where to get fresh, good quality seafood, I keep experimenting with things and do my best to keep an open mind. Well let me just say this dinner wowed us both. Actually, it wowed us all – Andrew included. He ate more than one plate of deconstructed taco!
And, this is another one of those dinners that is a triple threat – it is quick, easy, and healthy! I came home from a long, rough work day and despite my exhaustion and less than stellar mood, these came together in no time. In fact, they completely turned my mood around (well, the margarita probably played a part in that as well.) You marinate the fish briefly and while it is doing its thing, you can prep all the toppings and the sauce. I used halibut for these because it is my favorite type of white fish but you could also use tilapia or cod (or some other variety of white fish I am less familiar with). Try these soon for a healthy, colorful delicious meal!
