Al pastor tacos fish

I’m in love with al pastor tacos, there’s nothing like tacos, usually this dish is related to have on weekends because you need to go to a taqueria to have them, but what if you want them in the middle of the week? Well, I have in mind an easy and yet lighter version of them.

The trick of this dish is let it marinate the fish as much as you can, so if you can leave the fish marinating one night in advance it would be nice, but if you can’t with one hour will be enough. Enjoy them with an habanero sauce and cilantro and onion.

With this recipe you’ll have tacos more often than you think. If you want a less spiced version of fish tacos you can find another recipe here.
