2 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! :)

I absolutely adore fish taco's too! I've not made them like this, but yours here, with all of these wonderful ingredients, looks so yummy, I'm going to, and I can't wait.

They look so delicious I wish I had the ingredients right now to make them. :)

Thank you Attosa for your wonderful cooking recipes.

Hi Suz! I can't wait for you to try these. They are delicious. I love them with a side of roasted, shucked corn with queso fresco and lime juice!


One of my friends had asked if he could have his tortillas crisped up in the pan, and I totally thought of you while I did it! :)

Oh yum, that sounds like the perfect side dish to go with these incredible fish tacos you've got here. I've never had corn like that, but I looked it up, and yep...I'll have to try that too. Thank you. :)

what a nice way to make it low calorie, we usually grill ours for the flavor, but some times do the usual breading and frying for the comfort food from back in the 70s when my husband was diving in Mexico and getting fish tacos on the beach. I use sour cream instead of yogurt but all your ingredients are a good choice.
