More About This Recipe
Nothing says summertime like a nice plate of Fish Tacos. There's a fresh, fantastic flair that accompanies a meal when you serve it up with some seafood. This recipe takes the hearty, crowd-friendly texture and flavor of salmon and pairs it with a spicy cream sauce. It's also served up with a truly inspired kiss of edamame and white corn.

If you're unfamiliar with edamame, or the totally snackable pods of young soybean plants, it's time you make friends with this healthy, buttery, totally incredible snack. Edamame is high in omega-3 fatty acids, folic acid, and Vitamin K. It's a great addition to a well-balanced diet. To add it to your daily menu, just microwave a pack of frozen pods and toss a bit of sea salt on top.

The pods of edamame aren't edible, so they are typically eaten by placing the pod in your mouth, biting down on it, then pulling it through your teeth until the beans pop out. Eat those beans and toss the pod. If this all sounds like much too much work, many health food stores carry frozen edamame beans (that's what was used in this recipe). These bright green, frozen beans are a lifesaver in the kitchen. You can toss them into your favorite soups, pasta sauces, and (of course!) fish tacos.

If you're looking for a unique offering for summer picnics, parties, or potlucks, you really can't go wrong with these incredibly easy, totally delicious fish tacos. Enjoy!
