I like to serve fish tacos with quinoa and black beans for a complete and satisfying meal. If you’ve got them, add colorful summer toppings like bright peppers, green onions or purple carrots. —Camille Parker, Chicago, Illinois

This were the best fish tacos EVER!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 25, 2014

This was a good fish taco. It was hard to keep it from falling apart on a hard shell though. With typical taco meat and cheese, everything sticks better. Messy, but good.
