This is such a quick and healthy dish. There’s a hole-in-the-wall restaurant near me that makes great fish tacos and I’ve always meant to attempt to recreate them at home.

LOVE fish tacos! I love the addition of the yogurt!
I think this fits the bill for healthy fare (my husband is diabetic) so I am giving this recipe a whirl. It also sounds tasty. Since we don’t have any more summer tomatoes, I am going to substitute a fesh salsa.
