These healthy fish tacos are delicious! They are baked and not fried and are my go-to summer favourite meal to cook. They are perfect for lunch, dinner or even an afternoon snack! They not only taste amazing but are also made in under 25 minutes. 25 minutes, and that includes the marinating time. 

There are 3 parts to this recipe, the lime sauce, crunchy salad and the tacos. Each part of these healthy fish tacos offers great nutritional value, unlike normal fried tacos. This fresh and healthy recipe is perfect for a summers evening, however, I am not sure where our summer has gone!

Although it may look like a lot of ingredients, you will probably have most of the herbs and spices already in the cupboards.
