I feel like I’m getting ready for Cinco De Mayo the entire year. I am a HUGE fan of Mexican cuisine and if I had to eat one type of food every meal for the rest of my life…this would be it. Nachos, tacos, fajitas, queso, rice…all of it. I know I haven’t had the most authentic variety but I know that almost everything I’ve tried…I love. These Margarita Fist Tacos are so fun and flavorful, pretty and bright, and HEALTHY! They’re the perfect tailgating meal, recipe to store away for celebrating Cinco de Mayo, or an awesome Thursday night dinner any week of the year. I think you’re going to love this recipe!

Pat has always been a huge fan of fish tacos and I’ve typically stuck to ordering old faithful; chicken. He LOVES seafood and is up for trying anything. I have to say, the bright flavors of these Margarita Fish Tacos have won me over, and the ease of preparation sure isn’t bad either! I love the citrus combined with the tequila (duh) and how that marinates the fish so that everything is juicy and flavorful. These are such a winner for Taco Tuesday! (of if you eat them today, Taco Thursday!)

We love to serve these on lightly fried flour or corn tortillas and pile on the thinly sliced radish, red onion, cilantro, avocado, and lime juice. Keep it simple! You really want to be able to taste all the flavors working in these awesome tacos. The more minimalistic the better when it comes to these babies.

Enjoy!
