Celebrate Taco Tuesday with these unreal fish tacos! Seriously I could not stop eating these until there was nothing left.

I am so happy with this recipe and hope you enjoy it too! These tasted super authentic with the Mexican crema and corn tortillas. You can make your own or be lazy like me and buy them from the grocery store.

These fish tacos are full of flavor and much healthier because the fish is not breaded or deep fried. This is hands down my favorite tilapia recipe so far and could not get enough.
