I worked at a Fish Fry spot pretty much every Friday for a good 4 years of my life. We always got fish leftovers and I never passed on it! So, because of that I've been kind of sick of fish. However, I always enjoyed their fish tacos on the rare occasion that was the special. So, I decided to give it a try. Let's just say Tyler is VERY happy.

Begin by making your Chipotle Sauce:

  2. Transfer to a container and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.

For the Pico de Gallo:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, onion, jalapeno and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Next, make your Fish:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together your olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, and garlic salt. Toss with the fish and let it marinate for 15-20 minutes.

  2. In a large skillet, heat your other olive oil over medium high heat. Add the fish and cook for 3-4 minutes/side. Remove from a pan and flake with a fork.

To build your Taco:

  1. Spoon some flaked fish onto your tortilla. Top with sauce, cabbage, and Pico de Gallo.

  2. Enjoy!
