Coconut Crusted Fish Tacos with Strawberry Salsa

Taco Tuesday?! Cinco de Mayo?! The perfect healthy and delicious, quick and simple taco recipe. Oven baked crusted fish nuggets topped with a 5 ingredient strawberry salsa with a twist of juicy lime.. Mmmmm. 

This salsa though. Game changer. It's refreshing and bright with a hint of sweetness from the strawberries. Spring time is the beginning of strawberry season, folks. They're vibrant, red and extra sweet. Get those strawberries between April and July. Strawberries are jam (ha!) packed with Vitamin C and K and fiber-rich with lots of heart-healthy antioxidants. These little juicy gems are also great for hair, skin and bone health. 

Oven baked crusted fish.. so simple to make and it's so good. You can even eat these as is. Fish nuggets and ketchup (strawberry ketchup!) for the kids. Cut the fish into cubes, dip into eggs then into panko mixture and bake for 20-25 minutes. While those are baking, make your salsa and set aside. When the fish is done, you're ready to serve. 

Alriiiight, here's the recipe friends -
