Fish tacos

Fish tacos

Every Saturday, I try to make things that are quick and easy to make.

This Saturday in particular I did not want to be stuck in front of the stove after the morning I had.

I went to two post offices in the area to try and get my license renewed, the lady at the second post office told me to try another one about a 20 minute drive away. I didn’t think anything of it, seeing as the post offices only opened 15 minutes ago, so I was hopeful that there would be no line!!!1

I was sooooooo WRONG!!!!!!!!! The line was outside the post office. I stood for 2 and half hours just to get a license. Never again. When I got back home, my dad was like what took me so long. Seriously  and that what was I making for lunch he was hungry… seriously.

Luckily I had bought a piece of fish last night and it was still in the fridge, I had forgotten to put it in the freezer… no defrosting required.

As soon as I remembered the fish I thought of the recipe that I came across in Ashleigh Levin’s cookbook for fish tacos and I even had mini sweetcorn and red cabbage in the fridge… was that a sign or was that a sign??? And to top it all off I had a box of taco shells in the pantry.

This recipe was super easy to make and instead of using mayo to drizzle over the top, I opted for siraccha mayo…I love this mayo, I sit for hours in front of the tv spreading this mayo over crackers and just eating it like that.

I have never had fish tacos in my life and I loved these…. So crunchy and soo yummy.
