Grilled Fish Tacos
This healthy and flavorful weeknight dinner is a great way to include more fish in your diet! For this recipe, feel free to use any white, flakey fish (we prefer cod!) White fish, like cod or flounder, are good sources of protein and are low in fat. They are high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and have significant amounts of calcium and selenium. With the warmer weather, note that this recipe calls for grilling as a cooking method instead of frying. Grilling is an easy and flavorful way to avoid adding any unhealthy fats!
