Fish Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa

Leave a comment

Fish tacos may be one of the greatest things ever, especially when the salsa has the sweetness of mango and the fish has some flavor.  This is a super easy recipe that could totally be made on a weeknight.  One note:  If you have large tortillas, you’ll probably only need one per serving.  I know the recipe calls for 4 total (2 per serving), but I definitely didn’t need it.  Also, the fish, mango avocado salsa, and spinach could work as a salad if you want to cut out the wrap.  Versatility!
