I love creating recipes that are super tasty and easy for you to prepare at home. These Fish Tacos with Citrus Jalapeño Salsa is one of those recipes. I have never been much of a fan of fish tacos, after today, I may have just changed my mind. So go grab your super fresh fish (I used Amberjack in this recipe).

I used black forbidden rice to line the bottom of the tortilla. I would definitely start cooking this first as it takes about 30 minutes to prepare. Prepare 1 cup dry according to package instructions. You can use any rice, or leave out entirely.

Feel free to substitute Amberjack with your favorite fish, or even shrimp. Mahi-Mahi or Blackened Grouper would be great alternatives.

To prepare the slaw, in a bowl, mix well, the sugar, mayo, apple cider vinegar, sour cream, honey and kosher salt and pepper. Add the bag of cole slaw mix. Coat the slaw mix well with the sauce and reserve in fridge.

To build your fish tacos, grab a soft tortilla (I prefer flour), line the bottom with the forbidden rice, add a few pieces of the fish, top with a few spoonfuls of the salsa and the slaw. Serve with wedges of lime and ENJOY! This recipe yields four large Fish Tacos. You can also serve as an appetizer using mini tortillas.
