Cajun Blackened Fish Tacos are so delicious and easy to prepare. This recipe is perfect for Lent or Mardi Gras. This could be gluten free if you used a corn tortilla or a gluten free flour tortilla. You could also make this a clean dish by removing the tortilla and enjoying it on a bed of lettuce. I love all of the spices that are used. It is a flavorful recipe that the entire family will enjoy.
