Easy fish tacos with cilantro-lime crema are perfect anytime

Fish tacos with cilantro-lime crema recipeThere is this place near my home that I love to go to for fish tacos. They are so good, but really only a once-in-a-while treat because they are big greasy and I'm sure super caloric--you can feel it too, once taco is more than enough. That doesn't mean that all fish tacos have to be that way to be good. Thank goodness! 

I love this easy fish tacos with cilantro-lime crema recipe that I found because now I can make these tacos at home without all the extra grease and calories. YUM! I also like that when I make them at home, it's up to me which type of fish I use. Options are always good. You can even get a little jiggy with the tortillas you use. I like my tacos with corn tortillas, but my kids are fans of flour and it's an easy switch to make.
