I don’t know why we don’t eat fish tacos more often. Every time we I make them it’s pretty much just deliciousness. Serious deliciousness.  These ones were no different. Fish tacos are so simple and fresh tasting too. Gosh I just love them.  And that cool crunch that normally comes along with fish tacos?  Makes […]
