Baja Fish Tacos

As I mentioned the other day, Hubby and I love going to Dorado for our fish taco fix. While we were eating our tacos and elote, we were chatting about how we should try to make them at home sometime. I commented that the tortillas make a big difference.

I was apparently feeling bold that day because I just walked up to the counter and started up a conversation with the manager (which is so not like me!) I assumed they made their own tortillas, but in fact they buy them from a place just north of Boston. Then I asked if I could buy some from him. He gave me a whole bag for just a few bucks!! I was very excited and started planning out our meal on the walk home.

We decided to replicate our Dorado meal. I served these fish tacos with some delicious elote and black beans served over rice. We will definitely be having fish tacos at home more often!

    I love using veggies as a healthy substitute for pasta. My favorite is a little more obvious – spaghetti squash!

    Also, I got your DM about the photo. I’ve been crazy busy but I’ll email it to everyone tonight!

    This looks so good! Yummy produce is really the only thing I’ll miss about summer time. I came across your site earlier today while searching for a pumpkin spice cheesecake brownie recipe (which I plan on making tomorrow btw). You have some great recipes and I’ll definitely be returning!
