Nutrition for Runners: Fish Tacos

Tonight’s recipe is a great one we enjoyed a couple of times so far this week. My wife came up with the marinade for the fish and we used a sauce recipe we found online. 

The marinade my wife came up with consisted of – Oil, lime juice, (1/4c each) tbsp David’s seafood rub, chilli powder (1 teaspoon). 

The sauce recipe we used came from this website. We made it without the jalapeños and it still had enough spice and tasted great.

I barbecued the fish then we assembled the tacos using corn tacos and topped them with red cabbage, cheese and radishes.
