Fish tacos are one of my main go-tos at a Mexican restaurant, but I don’t always have time to head to the market for a fresh filet. Skip the battering, frying mess with healthy pre-made fish sticks (something we would typically turn our nose up at, but look how far brussels sprouts have come…), fiber-filled black beans, good-for-you avocado, hearty whole grain tortillas, nutty brown rice, and a light yogurt dressing to sub out the calorie-laden crema. A little punch of flavor from Hubby’s and my favorite, Tapatio sauce, adds a mildly sweet-spicy kick you’ll love!
Feel free to add any of your favorite fix-ins, or switch it up with one of my other versions: Swap the pickled veggies and tomatoes for arugula, chopped red onion, and mango salsa.
