Ah, fish tacos. Living in San Diego has made me spoiled on fish tacos. I love going to Rubio’s to get beer-battered fish tacos, but at over 1,000 calories per meal I rarely get it… unless I’m pregnant. Then I go crazy because, you know, the baby wants it.
But I digress.
I’ve been cooking so much more lately since my husband has gone Paleo. And I just came up with this super-easy spicy fish taco recipe that even my kids enjoy – though I turn down the heat on their fish a bit and serve it up with tortilla chips.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
