Spicy Fish Tacos


fish-tacosHere’s a simple recipe to use up your leftover fish that will come together in just 15 minutes.  I always try to make two meals out of one to save on the time spent in the kitchen. Leftover cooked Cod or halibut makes a delicious and nutritious base for tacos.

This is a super quick and easy gluten-free meal for those busy weeknights. Serve with a side salad and dinner is done.
