When nosotros got home, I was excited to essay a homemade version, but non hence thrilled most deep frying the fish. Number one, it’s super messy as well as I’m afraid of burning the identify down; as well as publish two, I wanted something lighter as well as healthier. I decided to essay breading the fish the same agency I create my chicken, as well as it worked similar a charm! These aren’t just the same every bit the fried fish tacos, but they are significantly healthier, as well as completely delicious. The tangy sauce but completes the whole package!
