Growing up, fish tacos weren’t really a part of my Mexican household’s diet plan.

It wasn’t till I went to college and started taking a look at dishes online that I understood how beloved fish tacos were by lots of.
When I had my very first fish taco, I was hooked. Fresh squeezed lime juice, some cilantro and a creamy spicy sauce to top it all off. What’s not to enjoy?!
