Tango Mango Fish Tacos

I have to say that this is in my top three favorite recipes. We have been trying to include more fish in our weekly menu, and these tacos do the job. Cod is one of our most liked types of seafood, but you can use haddock if you prefer. I like these tacos to have a little “kick” so I added extra spicy to ramp up the flavor and coupled with the freshness of the salsa, they go perfectly together. These tacos also make a great weeknight meal when time is short because of the fish cooks in about 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your filets. Simply chop and combine the salsa ingredients and top the cod on a tortilla shell and you’re finished. Corn tortillas add some flavor and fiber and work well with this recipe. If you happen to make extra salsa and you have some leftover, it makes a great healthy snack with some whole grain tortilla chips. Enjoy!
