When I first started my stint on the AIP diet, the first couple of weeks were all about trying to come up with options that were easy, tasty, and that my husband would also eat.
Fish tacos were something I decided to try early on, but the first attempt went poorly. My husband LOVED them, but deep frying them had been such a frustrating hassle, I didn’t want to do it regularly. I’m not big on battered fish anyway (don’t judge!), so I decided to go for a simple seasoned and baked fish, the second time around.
… and we quickly settled on these fish tacos as a staple menu item, having them at least weekly. SO good!
In terms of the fish, we tend to use cod, tilapia, sometimes halibut if we’re feeling bougie. We usually ask our wonderful fishmonger for recommendations as to what’s looking best at the moment. (We <3 her - she’s a giant geek.) Basically just go for something white and flaky!
We’ve settled on topping just with the salsa to keep things simple, AIP compliant, and fresh tasting – it’s a well balanced flavour, and isn’t lacking for anything.
Depending on your own way of eating (IE if you don’t need to restrict things as much), you can add crema, pickled onions, jalapeno slices, whatever you like. It’s a good base!
