Fish tacos are one of our favorites. There have only been a few places I have been able to eat them since going gluten free. One of them is a place in South Lake Tahoe, CA called Freshi’s and they are amazing. If you ever go to South Lake, check them out!
The last time I went to South Lake Tahoe was before we sold our house in California and moved to Washington, about a year and a half ago. That trip was so crazy, we were putting our house on the market and keeping a house show ready will two little kids is an impossible task. We decided to spend a week in Tahoe to avoid the constant cleaning and traffic of people coming in and out.
We drove up on a Sunday and Tuesday I had tickets to see Madonna (bucket list) in San Jose. We drove up Sunday; I drove back Tuesday morning and then drove back to Tahoe Wednesday morning. I was beyond exhausted, but Madonna was worth it.
That trip was the calm before the storm and the last time I ate fish tacos.
Being gluten and dairy free, if there is a dish that I really like and crave then it’s up to me to create a recipe that my family will enjoy.
I love mango and pineapple salsa so I decided to top this with mango salsa. I also wanted a dairy free spicy mayo sauce to pour over the top. It you like cabbage; some sliced cabbage would go great too.
