Fish Tacos With Cannabis & Mango Salsa
This recipe has me missing Mexico, so consider this my tribute to fun, sun and island-tastes! Today we’re making Fish Tacos With Cannabis & Mango Salsa.
I love cooking, period. But what I don’t love is overly-complicated meals with no pizazz.
These tacos have plenty of pizazz for you, plus they are so much fun to make, you’ll never have a ‘regular taco’ again.
No, I’m not Mexican or Latina, but I do have a huge appreciation for Latin Food. It really is some of the best cuisines out there, and I have years of experience growing up with some pretty fantastic Latin families who could cook exceptionally well!
I am not ‘taco-ing’ about taco-kits from the grocery store, or corporate taco-drive through’s. Nope – I am talking authentic, real and full-of-life, super-fresh Latin food that will make your mouth water.
Spice it up with some Cannabis and Tequila’s got nothing on ya! (just kidding, Tequlia has a lot on ya)
