I’ve been trying to learn to like fish ever since my dad brought home walleye cheeks that first time, fresh from Lake Erie, and my sisters oohed and aahed over how delicious they were. I wanted in. I desperately wanted to like fish. Every bite though… just left something lacking. It’s the texture that gets me, I think. And the fishy taste. So basically, I dislike every aspect of fish. Except, of course, for the fact that it’s good for you. So, in an effort to trick myself into liking fish, I’ve been making fish tacos all the time. They’re super simple to throw together, and if you add enough toppings, you can’t even taste the fish. I’ll consider that a WIN.
Here are some of my favorite fish taco combinations:
- fish + peach salsa (check out my recipe for blackened fish tacos with Carolina peach salsa on OurStateMag.com)
- fish + easy slaw (sub honey for sugar, if you like)
- fish + guacamole
- fish + avocado + hot sauce
- fish + kimchi
- fish + grilled peppers & onions
So tell me, how’d you trick yourself into liking fish?
