After that I decided it was my mission to find a fish taco recipe that I could make at home. Let's face I can't go out to eat all the time (as much as I may want). So I went to my favorite spot. Yes you guessed it Pinterest. I found a couple different recipes and tried them. I ended up coming up with a little something that fit exactly what I wanted out of my homemade fish tacos. To try to make them a little healthier I use Greek Yogurt for the lime cream and I also broil mine instead of frying. There is something about this recipe that tasted like you are having a taco but with the added benefit of using fish!
Another thing I LOVE about it is this meal takes me about 15 minutes to make. At the end of a long day I typically want my dinner to take less than 30 minutes to make and I am doing this one in half that! So if you are in the market for a recipe that takes no time to throw together, is fairly low calorie and tastes absolutely amazing then look no further!
