I absolutely love that Taco Tuesday is a cultural phenomenon.

Like, the idea that every Tuesday, tacos should be involved? Brilliant. Just brilliant.

Fun fact, I was a vegetarian for 7 years, beginning in high school and then through part of college. As such, I missed out on learning from my mom how to cook meat and fish.

To this day, cooking meat is tough for me because I just don’t feel good at it.

So, when it comes to meat-based recipes, I always opt for ease: slow-cookers, instant pots, grills, etc. Anything that makes cooking meat hard to mess up.

When creating this fish taco recipe, I knew I wanted to cook the fish in a way that was near impossible to mess up, and yet packed all the flavor. And I have to say, I think I succeeded!

All you have to do to make this fish for the tacos is rub it with olive oil and blackened seasoning, then cook it for 10 minutes in a 450°F oven. Et voila! Perfectly cooked, flakey fish ready for their taco destinies.

You saw it here first, people. Broma Bakery, making cooking fish a cinch since 2018.

Of course, it always helps to have a delicious drizzle of sour cream, aioli, etc. on one’s tacos. To keep things healthy, I created a dairy-free Avocado Cilantro Lime Crema using Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original almondmilk.

It’s freaking delicious. So much so that I may or may not have dipped my tacos directly into the crema…

So HAPPY TACO TUESDAY, Y’ALL. GO MAKE YASELF SOME FISH TACOS!
