Red Fish Tacos with Carrot Dill Slaw ~ We have had a busy few weeks filled with parties, out of town guests, piano lessons, clubs, classes, and more –– whew-wee. When these types of weeks happen it’s hard to get dinner on the table in a timely manner so I am always trying to come up with healthy and easy to assembly meals for such occasions –– join the club, right? You already know about our strong love for all things taco around this household so this dish was a natural progression into mealtime. I started out, as most of us do, rushing to get home and get dinner going after one of those crazy days but soon after I started to make these tacos, I realized this recipe was too delicious not to share. I picked up some red fish at the farmers market but you could substitute this with the favorite fish of your choice –– preferably one that’s fairly thin but slightly meaty and mild in flavor. Having some fragrant fresh dill still on hand from this dish, I added some in with crispy carrot shreds, lime juice, and a touch of honey to top the fish with a hearty amount of zesty slaw. The results? delish! and … there was still enough time for books and cuddles before bed.
