Quick & Easy Fish Tacos


My husband and I LOVE fish tacos. Anytime they are on the menu, at least one of us orders them. One of our favorite restaurants in Mexico had the most delicious fish tacos with red cabbage slaw. I was a little nervous at first, but it was love at first bite. After coming home, I was craving those battered fish tacos with red cabbage slaw, so I decided to try my hand at them. They were surprisingly easy (I used a few shortcuts), but they are definitely a “keep” in our book!
