Tequila Lime Tacos

Taco Tuesday is all about these easy Fish Tacos. I had made these awhile ago and we decided I needed to make them again. What I love about these tacos is the lighter flavor. I think sometimes fish tacos can be loaded with seasoning where there is too much seasoning. But these are just delicious.

Start by mixing the marinade ingredients, let the fish marinate for at least an hour. The longer it marinades the better they tacos are. The cayenne pepper adds just the perfect about of spice. The tequila and lime pair so well together with the chili lime seasoning and cumin. The flavor is very well balanced and not over powering.


I added shredded cabbage, little bit of guacamole sauce, taco sauce, avocado and shredded cheese. In our house we think all tacos need shredded cheese.
