“And surprise: it was basically the most awesome time of my summer because of how delicious, healthy, and seriously easy these fish tacos are. I bet you could make these in 15 minutes flat. Chili lime fish tacos, how we adore you.” The recipe and photos are courtesy of Lindsay of Pinch of Yum.


Chili Lime Fish:

Step 1
Defrost the fish by soaking it in the packaging in cold water for about 15 minutes.
Step 2
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Step 3
Whisk the butter, lime juice, chili powder, garlic powder, and salt together.
Step 4
Place the fish in a small oven-safe dish, pour the sauce over the top, and bake for 15 minutes.
Step 5
Remove fish from the oven, flake into small pieces, and toss with any sauce left in the pan.
Step 6
Bake for another 5 minutes so the sauce soaks into the fish.

Peach Salsa:

Step 7
Toss all ingredients together.


Step 8
Assemble, layer, load it up, squeeze more lime over the top, and DEVOUR.
