The perfect quick and easy weeknight dinner recipe idea, these Fish Tacos are a breeze to make and taste amazing. They are so fresh and light.

Pair them with a Soup Recipe or some roasted vegetables for a complete and healthy meal. I used Alaskan cod in my fish tacos recipe, but really, a wide variety of fish can be used, and as long as you aren’t using a very fatty fish (like salmon), it shouldn’t affect the calorie count much, if at all.

These were so easy to make and were a hit with my husband, so I’ll definitely be making these fish tacos again soon!

    I have never posted a comment in 35 years of cooking. And this recipe is NOT as good as the author makes it sound. It is extremely salted and too much paprika. This is absolutely one recipe that is not eatable.
