Yeah Taco Tuesday is nice but have you tried National Taco Day?? The annual exaltation of all things tortilla shreds its celebratory cheese on us today, reminding a weary nation that all things are possible through warm corn shells.
We’re not going to pass up this opportunity to come correcta with an infused taco recipe for our favorite food holiday. Chef Teresa Hansen has reimagined a west coast favorite, the fish taco, with a salsa side that gets its heat and its chill from Good Things Coming Mango Chile Fruit Jellies.
We chose fish because of the brain-boosting compounds found in popular taco varieties like salmon and cod. Fish are naturally high in omega-3 fatty acids that may help decrease the risk of depression while benefiting the body by reducing inflammation and lowering blood pressure. Plus, we think a breaded fish filet is the best flavor complement to the zesty mango chile salsa you’ll be scooping on top.
You don’t need an excuse to crunch a taco, but now you have one! Enjoy.
