It is often said that a way to a man's heart is through his stomach.

Well, these fish tacos will do just that. Loaded with fish,cabbage, fresh salsa, chunks of fresh cucumber, avocado and a hint of sriracha! Yummo!

Served on a warm corn tortilla loaded so full that you will need extra napkins, possibly even a bib.

This Father's Day give your kids an in with dad with this quick and easy meal. 

My kids came up with a delicious meal to make for  their dad. If you'd like to print this for your Dad enjoy the free printable.

This is a favorite meal at our house, and I could eat these every night.

I have tried several different types of fish: pub style halibut fish sticks, grilled salmon and pan seared white fish.

They were all delicious.

And who doesn't love fresh squeezed lemonade? It says "I love you" in a glass!  It is really simple to make, especially with this lemon squeezer.
