Fish tacos are great for those spring and summertime parties, they are nice and light to eat on those hot days. I don’t know about you but I hate to put on a bathing suit right after eat a giant cheeseburger. So if I know a meal will be eaten outside I try really hard to keep it light.
I like this recipe because it blends together really well the salt, with the tart lime and sweet peach salsa. It all comes together perfectly in 1 big bite. The original recipe came from the Food City website but I added a few more ingredients and some of my own flavors to spice it up a bit!
This is another recipe that easily lends itself to your creativity. I was thinking some grilled corn or maybe some roasted red pepper would be a nice addition. Have fun with it and throw in your favorites! If you like this recipe and give it a try, be sure to tag #DeSocioInTheKitchen I love to see what your creations!
