Thai Fish Tacos

These Thai Fish Tacos were an instant favorite at our house. I came up with this idea the other night when I was in the mood for Thai but I didn’t want anything too heavy. I had stuff for fish tacos on hand and decided to blend the two. Thai fish tacos… why not? They turned out sooo good!

What Type of Fish Works Best?

I used frozen fish filets, but of course you can season fresh fish and pan fry it until cooked through. My kids do better with the battered fish so I went with that, plus it’s easy. Throw it in the oven and you are done. Either way these will be delicious. Shrimp would also be a great option (definitely going to make it with shrimp next time. YUM)! Don’t be intimidated by the seemingly large ingredient list. Chances are you have most of the stuff on hand.

So Much Thai, Plenty of Time
