It’s taco time! AND all tacos should be served with margs so hop back to Tuesday’s post to pick up my recipe for my coconut lime frozen margarita. Tacos shouldn’t be consumed without their BFF marg – am I right? (And maybe a slice of toasted coconut tres leches cake?)

Now, these tacos are not only delicious BUT they are ready in just 30 MINUTES! Shout it from the rooftops these tacos are tasty, easy to make and perfect for the crazy weeknight dinner rush. Plus, can we talk about how delicious any taco is when it’s topped with a creamy slaw? Is a fish taco even a fish taco if it doesn’t come with slaw? No. The answer is no.

To make things easy I decided to not just make fish tacos but I made EASY fish tacos. Instead of breading and frying my fish (you know I hate the smell of frying!) I opted to use Gorton’s fish sticks. You might remember I worked with Gorton’s a few months ago when I made my Asian shrimp po boy sandwich.

Their fish sticks are 100% fish (as they should be!) and have zero fillers. They don’t just make this dish delicious they make this dish easy!

Oh, and that slaw isn’t just your typical mayo based slaw – NOPE. It’s made with lots of fresh squeezed lime juice and tangy plain Greek yogurt. It’s so good! PLUS it’s a great way to get some veggies with your tacos. Who doesn’t need more vegetables in their diet?

Basically everyone.

    Fish tacos are completely pointless if not topped with a really great slaw–the more lime, the better!
