TACOS DE PESCADO

 

HI!  Hope all of you are having a great first quarter of 2017.  Yes, an entire quarter of the year is almost coming to an end! Can you believe?  It has been a great few months for me with so many new exciting projects and partnerships.  One of the partnerships that I am most excited about is the one between my Super Mamas and Northgate Markets.  My sister and I came together to create a variety of recipes featuring items you can easily find at any of their stores.  If you live in Southern California, then Northgate isn't a stranger to you.  They have been my favorite grocer for over a decade and partnering with them was a dream come true.  Stay tuned for more lent -inspired recipes and videos in the weeks to come.  Or visit our Super Mamas Blog, where we have them all in one place for you, including a custom Lent-inspired grocery list.  

In the meantime enjoy these tacos. They really are killer and perfect for any taco Tuesday.  I also highly recommend you make extra of the crema and keep it in the fridge to use it as a dip with pretty much anything you want.  

Provecho!

Lime Crema:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all the crema ingredients. Set aside.
