It’s taaacooo time!

I’m showing you how to turn the simplest ingredients into a delicious, wholesome, full of flavours meal which everyone in the family is going to absolutely love! These fish tacos with a minty yogurt red cabbage slaw are everything that tacos should be – crunchy, loaded with textures and like a party in your mouth.

Fish tacos originally come from Baja California but I think everyone has their own version now.

Lately I’ve seen all kinds including thai tacos too. But they really are so adaptable that you can easily make them your own.

These fish tacos are really simple to do, and can be on the table in under 30 minutes if you have all the ingredients on hand. We’ve tried these with flour and corn tacos, and really either works though I prefer the flour ones.

I’m all for easy weeknight dinners, especially when they are made from scratch but with minimal effort!
