Fish tacos are easy to make.  These tacos are great for an easy dinner, taco Tuesdays or Cinco de Mayo celebrations.  This dinner meal is family tested and approved.

 This week we celebrated my husband’s birthday.  Secretly, I think he would like me to tell you that we celebrate his 29th birthday year after year ~ haha (and, of course I would like to tell you that little wish for mine too when it rolls around…)!  Just like everything in my life, special family celebrations revolve around food (lol).  And, so it’s no surprise that I made a special menu just for him as part of the weekend long celebration that included many of his favorites.  I surprised him on Sunday to wrap everything up with Fish Tacos.  

Fortunately Cod was on sale here and I love cod in my fish tacos, so it was a win-win.  The kids gave this dinner a total ‘THUMBS UP’ for dad’s birthday.  This recipe is great for Game Day ‘as is’ or as part of a taco bar for your guests.

I served our fish tacos on the flour/corn wraps with radicchio, red onions and my guacamole recipe (see below) along with a side dish of rice and beans and our corn salsa salad ; another family favorite.

And, if the grown ups in your house like margaritas you can round this meal off with a sip of my frozen blueberry margaritas they are fabulous and perfect to share with friends.  Simply click here for the recipe.

My guacamole recipe:  Here is a link to my guacamole recipe that goes GREAT on top of fish tacos.  It also makes a fabulous snack with my homemade flatbread chips.  Both recipes are in the link below the picture and are great for snacks and celebrations!
