The Best Fish And Seafood Taco Recipes To Try This Summer

Fish tacos make a perfect summer dinner, for groups of any size.

Fish tacos are one of our favorite meals to eat in the summer. Light, flavorful, easy to cook and construct and seriously delicious to consume, fish tacos are a great go-to summer dinner, for groups of any size. While the exact origins of fish tacos are unknown, it's likely that people living along the coast in Mexico have been eating them as long as tacos have existed.

More recently, in the last half century or so, Baja fish tacos have become the standard, iconic version. A Baja fish taco consists of a lightly battered, mild white fish that is fried and served with cabbage in a corn tortilla. It's often served with a mayonnaise- or cream- based sauce, salsa and lime. A little avocado never hurt anyone either.

Fish tacos come in many varieties, however, and each one is as worthy as the next. You can use any fresh seafood -- like tilapia, halibut, mahi mahi, swordfish, salmon or shrimp -- and any filler. You can grill, fry, sauté or broil. With so many options, you're guaranteed to find something you like.
