  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I saw this post of yours and was reminded that we haven’t had fish tacos in a few weeks. We love them so much we sometime have them EVERY week! (I’m going to steal the lime cream idea!)

  4. Reblogged this on Digital Diva Lap-Band Blog and commented:
    I’ve been looking for a good at home Fish Taco recipe and I think this could be the one.

    Generally speaking, if you use the smallest soft tortilla size, two Fish Tacos is a perfect bandster portion. I’m sure that would also be true of these.

  5. I can’t wait to make these… I just fell in love with fish tacos this year! I used to think they sounded gross 😦

    I don’t eat meat, only fish, so this kind of recipe is just what I need! Thank you! ❀

  6. Great looking Tacos. Muy rico! Detailed recipe and easy to follow. Do you make your own tortillas?

      • Yup! You got me craving them- and the kids are happier with shrimp than fish. The other night I took inventory: shrimp, avocados, key limes all there. No cabbage- substituted by making a slaw with some (older but ok) bok choy, jicama, cilantro, sour cream, mayo, lime, chives, pepper, honey and a lot of sliced fresh jalapenos. My family had never tried shrimp tacos- I’d forgotten my roots! These were very yummy and will be done again. Thanks!

  7. (-: food, food, and more food πŸ™‚
    and imagine some people actually rather eat some protein powder.
    i will definitely make the fish tacos one day soon!

  8. OMG! Your blog is so visually yummy, you just made me want a late-night snack!! Plus, I always hear about fish tacos, but have never had one. Definitely going to make some of these!!
    Thanks for your recent visit to my blog!!

  9. These look SO good!! Thx for the like on my recent post on The Nutrition Doctor is In the Kitchen! πŸ™‚ Just a little fyi – ignore if you like!! – your blog is hard to read for me – perhaps because of the gorgeous photos it’s hard to scroll and such?? Anyway … thx for sharing this terrific recipe. Perhaps try whole wheat taco shells? #theydontsuck

  10. These look like the fish tacos I had in San Diego, which were fabulous, from a tiny little place I just happened upon. When a local asked me how I knew to come there, I had to say it was just luck. They said I was at the best place in town. Thanks for the recipe and thanks for visiting my blog too.

  11. Oh, Maggie! Being a true fish taco snob, you’ve won me over with this recipe. I made it tonight with some variations, a different aioli sauce to accompany the fish, and grilled the fish on the BBQ. The entire creation rivaled the best I’ve found yet in Kailua-Kona, and believe me, I’ve sampled quite a few. I plan to write about these tomorrow morning when I have more steam, and I’ll send folks to your blog when I do. Thanks again. Cindy from Isle to Isle.
