Low-Fat Panko-Crusted Fish Tacos in Under 30 Minutes


I love fish tacos, and one of my favorites, in town is at the Cantina Restaurant. They have incredible tacos (really everything is great there), and so I thought I would try to match their recipe. OMG good!

This has been an exciting month for me. Probably the most exciting month ever for many reasons. I can’t say too much yet about some of my “big” news. Yesterday was exciting in itself when I got an email saying, “Martha Stewart” is now following you on Twitter“, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Anyway, lots more news to come…Thanks for everyone’s support and all the great emails and kind words.
