A family favorite for a healthy and delicious week night meal on the table FAST! You can add your own twist to this one and try regular potatoes or different types of fish like Salmon! I LOVE the cool yet spicy crema sauce combined with all of the flavors of the taco. Adding sweet potatoes as the side really balances everything too. You get sweet from the potatoes. heat in the cream and fish, crunch from the slaw, tang from the lime. It truly is a delightful meal! Enjoy friends!
