I come from a family of fishers. My mom fishes, my brother fishes, my grandfather fishes (you get the point). I, however, do not fish. It's not that I don't enjoy it, I'm just not good at it. For example, my husband and I went deep sea fishing a couple of years ago. Every single person on the boat (all 52 of them) caught a fish - except me. We would have our lines right next to each other and he would get a bite and I got nothing. This love of fishing by my family definitely has it's advantages. My mom goes down to the coast several times a year (pretty much anytime someone invites her to go). And because she is such a good fisher, she always comes home with a ton of fresh fish - which is exactly what happened this week. After a few days at the coast she returned home with plentiful amounts of trout. I talked her into giving me a few filets so I could make fish tacos. I've actually never made fish tacos before so I was apprehensive about how they would turn out. I'm guessing you've figured out they were good (or I wouldn't be posting the recipe). They are incredibly easy to make and pack a punch of flavor thanks to McCormick's Mojito Lime Marinade.
