Fish Tacos with Chipotle Lime Crema

Fish Tacos with Chipotle Lime Crema

Lately, I have been wanting to venture out and try new things so here we are with these easy Fish Tacos and my own Chipotle Lime Crema (not mayo based because I don’t like mayo)! I get nervous about making tacos with fish because of how you cook the fish, but this time they turned out so YUMMY! I actually made them in my awesome Instant Pot and it only took 7 minutes to cook! FASTEST dinner ever! But, no worries if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can bake the fish with the same amount of ingredients in the oven for about 12-15 minutes! 🙂
