Who loved fish? I do, I do! I love seafood and I make it any change I get, as in, any time hubby is working all day. I have some delicious Fish Tacos with Homemade Tartar Sauce to share with you today!
-What do you call a fish with no “eyes?”
I know this joke is a little corny but I love it. I heard it on How I Met Your Mother (love that show) and couldn’t stop laughing. Saying it out loud is a lot funnier than reading it, by the way.
I really don’t know how I got fish tacos from this joke (other than “fish”) but I suddenly started craving fish tacos after the episode. I immediately put it on my shopping list and made it the next time hubby was working all day. I should explain, he doesn’t like seafood or smell of seafood so I make it for myself when he is not home.
I usually prefer to make my on sauce or dressing. Simply, because I don’t use them often enough to buy a whole bottle. After throwing away jar after jar of sauces, I started making my own. The best part is that it tastes so much better too!

I NEVER buy tartar sauce anymore! I totally agree-never go thru it, so I might as well make it myself 🙂 These look super delicious and can’t wait to try them! Thanks for sharing.
