Whether you live in a warm climate or are gearing up for your millionth nor’easter of the season, it’s that time of year when summer and all its fun can’t come soon enough. Besides ice cream, cold beers, and all the tasty in-season fruits (hey, watermelon), fresh fish tacos are up there on our list of essential May-through-August food groups. After all, when better to celebrate Taco Tuesday than the lazy days of summer?
These fish taco recipes will get you pumped for the sunny days to come. Lucky for you, you can make ’em anytime you want.
The best way to amp up shrimp’s flavor without deep-frying them? Serve them blackened! You’ll need a grill or cast-iron skillet, and plenty of Cajun seasoning to spice them up. Add an avocado salsa and some crumbled feta and you’re all set for taco Tuesday.
If you’re staying away from carbs, get your taco fix from this on-trend fish and cabbage bowl. Its main ingredients are just that—red and green cabbage and tilapia, plus a few spices. Feel free to mix in green onion, guac, or any other toppings you’ve got on hand too.
These tacos especially scream summer, given the pineapple-mango salsa thrown on top… we can taste how fresh and light they are just by looking at them. And since tilapia is so quick to cook, this meal is super easy to throw together last minute.
