Adobo Rubbed Fish Tacos with Cilantro Lime Coleslaw


Category : , ,

Fish tacos have been one of our staple dishes this summer.  They are pretty quick and easy to make and they pack a huge flavor punch.  Plus they are really healthy.  We have tried various recipes, but so far we like the recipe we found in the June issue of Eating Well the best.  It has great flavor and the coleslaw is excellent.  This meal is perfect to sit out with on your back porch, enjoy a warm summer evening and a nice cool beer.
