Grilled Fish Tacos

Tacos are one of the most famous Mexican dishes. They used the word "taco" to refer to a small piece, that's why tacos are tiny in size. One of the most kinds of tacos preferred by people from that time is the fish tacos. The fish tacos can be fried and grilled, but in this recipe you are going to try the healthier version on the grill, but make sure to use lean and flaky fish because it doesn't require lots of time.
