Fish Taco recipe & Photos from My Week


One of our weekly staples is this simple fish taco recipe I put together. It’s an easy yummy dinner – and most importantly – the kids love it!


-Marinate tilapia fillets in El Paso taco seasoning, olive oil, lime juice and salt for 30 minutes

-Grill or pan-fry fish for 8 minutes on each side (could be less, but I’d be on the safe side)

 -Serve on multigrain tortillas with toppings



Tomatillo salsa (key ingredient for us!)

-Red onions and tomatoes marinated in lime juice and salt

-Homemade guacamole (mashed avocado, sea salt, lime juice and finely diced tomato, onions & garlic)


My daily breakfast – egg white omelet with spinach and cheese plus a giant mug of green tea.

Enjoying homemade iced coffees – just add the syrup and ice to milk – you can get your daily coffee fix without waiting in line at Tim Hortons.


Gorgeous flowers I walk past everyday

I finally gave in to the hype and ordered a Tangle Teezer from ASOS (all the UK bloggers rave about it). It feels amazing on my scalp, but I have to keep testing to see if it works better than a wide-toothed comb on my tangles.

Hope you’ve had a great week – if you try out my fish taco recipe – let me know how it turns out!

      I love them too – we had them at an outdoor grill and I was surprised at how easy it was to recreate at home 🙂

      Thanks Noelle – so far so good with the Tangle Teezer. I think my constant use of Moroccan oil has kept my hair from getting too tangly at the moment (last time my hair was this long it would knot up at the back of my neck ALL the time LOL)…will definitely review it soon 🙂

    Your food pics are making me hungry, LOL. I love fish tacos and I want to try making that omelet sometime. What kind of cheese do you put in it? Love the sky blue accents paired with the red gingham!
