Feel the Vacation Vibes with These Beer Battered Salmon Fish Tacos
Fish tacos just sound fun! They conjure up images of surfers on the beach, Mexican fiestas, and a relaxing ice cold beer. This recipe brings the vacation vibes and takes a new twist on the traditional fish taco, which uses a white flakey fish, and instead calls for salmon. Fish tacos are ideal for cherishing the last of those warm summer nights, but this recipe is also perfect for dinner in a pinch. Just be sure to prepare the remoulade sauce in advance and to save time, buy pre-cut lettuce for the slaw.
