Healthy Fish Tacos

 In Easy, Healthy & Nutritious Recipes, Tasty Mains

healthy fish tacos

People always tell me in practice that they are not “Big” fans of fish.  Well, this recipe should make anyone into a fish lover, even kids.   It’s packed with whole foods that will offer loads of antioxidants, nutrients,  minerals , fibre and packs a delicious taste.  Fish is a great addition to a weekly meal as it is high in protein and omega 3 fatty acids.  To speed up prep time at dinner  I made the salsa at lunch so that all the tastes could mingle together and would reduce my active time at night after a long day at work. The fish is quick, spice it and throw it in the oven and you have a great, healthy meal with no additives or preservatives.
