This week we are blogging about some of our favorite Caribbean recipes. I am a huge fan of fish tacos. In Cancun we had some of the best fish tacos I have ever had. I have been trying to recreate them ever since we came home. In Cancun they had some of the best mango’s and salsa I have ever had. I would get their grilled fish, add some mango, some avocado and some fresh salsa. Top with a squeeze of lime and I had a fish taco I could eat every night of the week.

This past week I recreated a fish taco that brought me back to the sandy beaches and restaurants of Mexico. If you love fish tacos, this is a really fun and fresh version you have probably never had. The ripe, sweet mango gives such a great new flavor. I served these tacos with Ellen’s Pineapple Rice and we were all a HUGE fan!! The next day I ate the fish with the salsa spread over the fish with a side of rice and it was also delicious. This fish and salsa combo is great in a taco, or just topped over the grilled fish. Either way, these tacos will bring you to a warm, summer getaway–even if it’s just in your own back yard 😉
