Something's Fishy 'Round Here... "Fish Tacos"

Fish tacos??
Thats what my young'uns cried when I told them I was making fish tacos for dinner.
Yep! Fish tacos! I said.
They were scared....
Until they tried them!

Don't you be scared too!
They are YUMMY!

If all 5 of my young folk will inhale them,
they HAVE to be good!
They are NOT fishy.
They are mild, refreshing, and something new.
And, I'm gonna show ya how to make 'em!

Wow that looks great, I think I am definately going to have to try this one out. It's a pity I don't have the ingredients on hand or I would be cooking right now!

those are some seriously professional looking tacos and pictures.

I LOVE fish tacos, but I've never tried to make them at home.

Guess that'll have to change!

Lauren said...

These look great! I can't wait to make em.

Do you have a recipe for homemade taco seasoning?

My goodness they even look delicious. By coincidence, I have a nice big chunk of cod to play with...hmmm.

Thanks for the recipe.

I love fish tacos but have never had them like this. I usually roll the fish in cornmeal then fry it then put it in the taco shell. But this way sounds very good. I will try it. Thanks. Your pictures make them look gooooood.

Living in So Ca they have become a staple for when I order at Mexican shops. But just a few years ago, I wasn't having anything to do with them. The thought of a FISH taco scared me. Then I made myself try some and never looked back! I've even made them at home. YUM!

You can make them with frozen fish sticks too.

Tatersmama said...

I aaked someone a while back, what fish tacos were like, and they said that they were just fish sticks in a taco shell.
That sounds okay, but I haven't gotten up the gumption to try them

But THESE? I will definitely be giving them a try !

Chickenista said...

First and foremost thank you for following me!! I feel so honored! Now then, these tacos look sooooo yummy! Sounds like I may not even mess up this recipe. But we never know around here. Momma set off a few smoke detectors in her time. I always figured it as a timer.Thank you for sharing. You always take such good pictures.
