Fish for Fifteen

North Myrtle Beach was our family vacation destination this year. And with all the new babies around, we had a BLAST! We took turns cooking each night, and my husband and I prepared Spicy Fish Tacos for the group! WARNING: These are healthy, but SPICY! I LOVE spice, but its not for everyone. To decrease the heat, decrease the amount of adobo sauce used – use as little as a couple tablespoons. Remember, when preparing food for others, it’s a great time to prove that healthy can be tasty!!
