Happy Monday!!! Today marks my last day of interviews and man am I super psyched. For those of you who follow football and are Vikings fans. I am so sorry. Yesterday my husband, brother-in-law, and I sat in complete shock as the Vikings blew their chance to go on to the next game. My husband is a die hard Minnesota sports fan, slowly but surely he has rubbed off on me. Husbands have a way of doing that. Sometimes I wish I could go back to the days when I didn’t care. Sports can be so freaking heart breaking. But, such is life and there are bigger things in the world…like the gloriousness that is fish tacos.
Andrew and I started having fish tacos a few years ago. I love fish and had always wanted to try them, but the restaurant versions are always laden with fat and are often fried, and I just would rather feel turn that into a fresh healthy meal that doesn’t leave me feeling sluggish and confined to the couch for the rest of the evening.
Most of the time we have these with a jalapeno dip and pico de gallo, but we have been on a major avocado kick and decided to switch things up. These may be the best fish tacos I have ever had in my life, and Andrew would concur.
These are simply delicious. The fish is crispy on the outside and perfectly flaky and the sauce provides a refreshing component with a terrific kick. Feel free to eat the avocado creme as a dip too. I have dipped chips, sweet potato fries, carrots, used it as a dressing. The list goes on and the options are unlimited. Start to finish, this meal took me less than 15 minutes. Seriously, there are no flaws.
Have an awesome week! I hope you are experiencing much warmer temperatures than we are here in frigid Minnesota!!
