Battered Fish Tacos with Fresh SlawThese tacos are filled with puffy, crispy buttermilk fried fish and a wonderfully refreshing cabbage, corn, and pepper slaw. The flavours are as vibrant as the colours presented. Enjoy!


A plate of seafood tacos.

Seafood "Alley" TacosEver price a lobster or shrimp taco? Some places charge $8.99 for a two taco shrimp plate or $9.99 for a two taco lobster plate. I made these homemade seafood tacos for less than $.50 per taco. I call them "Alley" tacos because they are cheaper than a street taco!


Fresh Fish Tacos

Fresh Fish TacosI've heard a lot of people mention they don't like fish tacos because they're mushy and none of the flavours stand out as much as other meat tacos. Here is a way to make them crisp and refreshing. Using only coleslaw and salsa as accompaniments really helps the fish stand out. I've added a link to my Mexican Coleslaw recipe below, but you could use any type.


Mexican Street Corn Tacos

Mexican Street Corn TacosThis is a delicious twist on tacos. I used Mexican street corn as my inspiration to fill these tortillas. It's creamy and zesty and really hits the spot when you don't have things like guacamole or sour cream on hand. It pairs very nicely with the meat, cheese, and salsa inside.

2 Fish Tacos with Lime Crema

Fish Tacos with Lime CremaI adore fish tacos! They are so fresh and zesty. But they can be even fresher (and so much cheaper) when you make them yourself. These tacos came out to about a buck a serving, and I even used my toaster oven. I'd buy that for a dollar! :)


shrimp tacos

Shrimp TacosThese are healthy, fresh and delicious. Once I had made these, I swore I would never get tacos through fast food drive-through again! These are full of sautéed shrimp, smothered in cilantro and mango salsa.

Honey Chipotle Chicken TacosI saw this recipe and the chicken crispers looked delicious. I made my tacos a little differently than the original recipe. They were delicious. They were spicy, smoky, and sweet. It felt like we were eating these in a restaurant, without the large bill to pay for!

Build Your Own TacosIt's so much fun to set up this "choose your own ingredients" meal for company and watch the choices and how they build their own tacos. You can make it easier on yourself by simply serving soft shells by heating the corn tortillas in a microwave tortilla warmer instead of frying them ahead in oil.

Put about a Tbsp. of oil in the pan and let it get hot enough to sizzle if you flick a drop of water at it (stand back, lol).
