What’s the first thing you think of when you think about fall? Pumpkin spice lattes? Apples? Acorn squash? Wait, wait, wait. Do you mean to tell me that it’s not fish tacos?
Happy first day of fall!
You guys, I’m the worst. Yep, I’m the person talking about fish tacos on literally the first day of fall. But before you click away, hear me out. I know for a fact that all that pumpkin spice bonanza is going to start to infiltrate your Pinterest/Facebook/Instagram feed immediately, so I’m just trying to give you a break. A nice little safe space to take a breather from all the orange and black.
So let’s get to the real reason why you’re here: these fish tacos look damn good!
Growing up, fish tacos weren’t really a part of my Mexican family’s diet. Sure, we ate fish, but my parents usually just pan-fried it and served it with a side of rice and sautéed veggies. It wasn’t until I went to college and started looking at recipes online that I realized how beloved fish tacos were by many.
When I had my first fish taco, I was hooked. Fresh squeezed lime juice, some cilantro and a creamy spicy sauce to top it all off. What’s not to love?!
These fish tacos with chipotle lime crema are SO EASY to make, I promise you they’ll become a part of your regular recipe rotation once you try them. The chipotle lime crema made with greek yogurt and lime juice is light and bright yet satisfies that desire for creaminess at the same time, making this recipe perfect for those who are looking to cut back on the super indulgent foods that seem to be everywhere this time of year.
For those of you looking for a dairy-free version of the chipotle lime crema, simply substitute coconut milk for the Greek yogurt.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
