The Best Fish Tacos Recipe With Wasabi Slaw

I am delighted CFE Saltfish has sponsored the Buena Ventura Salted Pollock Fillets wild caught fish used in this original best fish tacos recipe created by me. All opinions expressed in this post are my own.

When spring hits and it is getting warmer outside, light and fresh meals are what people are looking forward to having. With using fresh ingredients and delicious fish, eating fish tacos tastes just like spring. The Buena Ventura Salted Pollock Fillets are an excellent wild caught fish to use for this fish tacos recipe. You can find this frozen fish in Kroger stores. The reason I love this recipe so much, is my husband makes the fish while we prepare all the other sides as a family.
