Halibut Fish Taco
This meal is the opposite of what I think of when I think of fish tacos. These are light. Fresh tasting. Clean. Flavorful. These were so good that my husband and I were scraping the bits from the bottom of the pan. These fish tacos are going to be a staple in this house from now on. I made them about two weeks ago and honestly, I cannot wait to make them again.
