Menu Plan: Feb 24th – March 2nd {Recipe: Balsamic Fish Tacos}

Balsamic Fish Tacos from www.dineanddish.net

A recipe you will definitley want on your menu, the Dine & Dish Menu Plan for the week, and a great giveaway from Marzetti’s Simply Dressed Salad Dressing, all below!

I am obsessed, with a capital “O”, with fish tacos lately. I just can’t get enough of them… so much that they’ve made a weekly appearance on our table for the past several weeks. I’ve made fish tacos before, but those tacos contained fried fish. Now, my favorite form of fish tacos is with thick cuts of white fish, cheese, cabbage and tomatoes, all with a douse of Marzetti Simply Dressed Balsamic Dressing. Oh dear me… these fish tacos are my new “I need dinner on the table in 15 minutes” meal. So fresh and so good…if you haven’t made fish tacos at home, I beg of you to give these a chance. Once you enjoy fish tacos for the first time, I think Taco Tuesday might start having a whole new meaning at your house!

Our menu for this week is full of classic winter dishes. We had over a foot of snow dumped on us this past week and we’re supposed to get at least that much again tomorrow. We’re hunkering down, staying warm, and filling our bellies with comfort foods.

  1. Fish tacos are always delicious – and drizzled with balsamic, well this is a HOME RUN!

  2. Not only am I envious that you do such an awesome meal plan, I love these tacos!! We have tacos several times a month, but I’m loving the balsamic on this version. Totally going on my virtual list!! Well… I the tacos will be made for sure, I just need to make a real plan.

  3. K, those look amazing. I’ve been slowly easing my children into loving fish tacos … but I think these might just do it!

  4. I used to be the same way! I loved only deep fried crunchy fish tacos now all I need is a good flaky, well-seasoned fish and I am good to go! I can’t wait to try this! I just bought Tilapia too!

  5. I would love to try this in tacos :)

  6. I just printed this.
    I mean, how can you not print this one out?
    Seriously creative Ms Kristen!

  7. This recipe sounds fantastic, and I definitely need to add it to my menu! I love using salad dressings as a marinade for steaks and chicken too!

  8. These look so quick, easy, and delicious! My whole family loves anything with balsamic in it, these would definitely be a hit!

  9. These tacos look delicious! I can’t wait to add these to our menu planner!!

  10. I use in marinating for chicken
    use it tin tacos

  11. Recipe sounds wonderful!!!!

  12. These look awesome! I’m sure my family would love these!

  13. Love fish tacos and it looks like the balsamic created a really nice glaze on the fish! I just found a little hole in the wall that sells the BEST homemade tortillas here in philly so what better way to use them than a fish taco!

  14. I made this tonight and had some issues :(. My fish got mushy and my cabbage never really got soft, but more of a rubber texture. And, the red cabbage gave the fish a pinkish tint, which made it look undercooked. Even though the fish was good, the pink appearance and rubbery cabbage were not a good combo. What did I do wrong?
