Fish Tacos en Escabeche

This week, has been busy.  Spending my time back and forth from kitchen to keyboard preparing a few desserts that you will see here very soon.  Because I spend most of my time in the kitchen, ironically, I don’t have time to prepare myself a descent lunch.  I usually eat whatever is available and quick to reheat between cooking and shooting food photos.  I’ve been trying to cut that out and give myself an hour to eat just as if I worked a 9 to 5 job.  It makes a difference to take a break, enjoy a nice meal and refuel for the second half of the day.  Things get done quicker, with ease and I feel much better when I’m working.

Tacos are always a win if filled with fresh, good-for-you ingredients. The nice folks at Mission®, asked me to try out their new Gluten Free Tortillas and I saw this as an opportunity to prepare some fish tacos with a couple leftover fish fillets waiting for me in the freezer.

Fish tacos never appealed to me until I moved to Los Angeles.  Fish tacos are everywhere and should be considered state dish.  Now I enjoy my dose of homemade fish tacos every couple of weeks and have perfected my technique in fish prep, seasoning and serving.  With Mission’s® new Gluten Free Tortillas you’ll get all of the goodness of a great tasting tortilla without the gluten.  These are perfect for people with dietary restrictions or just want to cut back on gluten.  Enjoy this quick and easy recipe of fish escabeche tacos next time you are pressed for time or just feel like enjoying a goo fish taco.
