Happy (almost) Friday! I know it’s not Tuesday but I have tacos for you today. In our house we can eat tacos most nights of the week and Tuesday is just an excuse to eat more tacos, can you relate?
One thing our fam needs to get better at is incorporating more fish into our diet, since 2-3X per week is the goal according to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Well twist my arm, I’ll eat my weekly fish quota at one meal if it’s served in crispy fish tacos form!! Raise your hand if you agree?
This recipe incorporates seasonal fresh ingredients like pomegranates and pears… and it’s actually rather easy to prepare at home. Fish cooks up super fast so you’ll have dinner (or lunch) on the table in 25-30 mins with this delicious Crispy Fish Tacos recipe.
Cause I need more of that in my life too: simplicity.
Fish makes life more simple and there’s a wide variety of fish to choose from! You’ve probably heard salmon, tuna, halibut, and mackerel are great sources omega 3 fatty acids important for brain and eye health, but cod is often an overlooked hero because not only is it rich in omegas it’s also one of the few sources of vitamin D in the diet.
Don’t like to take supplements? Me either!! So get your fish in each week to benefit from those important nutrients that are essential for health and longevity. For more delicious and versatile seafood recipes, visit the Dish on Fish website.Print
