Fish Tacos Recipe
It's Taco Tuesday! Season and grill your favorite fish (mine is cod!) and top with a fresh Mango Pico De Gallo and your Fish Tacos will be bursting with tropical flavors!
Pico for fish tacos is always a good thing and adding fresh mango to your Pico De Gallo adds a buttery note along with a hint of sweetness.
The combination of grilled fish and homemade pico make this the best fish tacos recipe ever.
I cooked my fish on the grill but you can make this recipe without grilling. No grill? No problem!
Pan fried fish tacos will be equally delicious so go ahead when and make them on your stove top. Scroll down for stove top cooking directions.

A taco serving plate with all the sections is an ideal way to serve all your favorite toppings and be sure to don your let's taco about it t-shirt (again, cracking up here!) and let the fiesta begin!
