What to serve with fish tacos?

The best sides to serve with fish tacos need to go swimmingly well together, and we think we’ve nailed it with these perfect ideas:

One of the best accompaniments to a fish taco is a fresh and spicy salad, such as Pico De Gallo. Pair it with our recipe for Whole Fish Mexican Style, and be transported straight to the Pacific Coast of Mexico!

Another idea is to make a crunchy veg salad like this recipe for Mexican Coleslaw. It goes well inside classic Fish Tacos, but would work with most Mexican fish recipes adding texture and tons of flavour.

Finally, we’d recommend some classic Homemade Guacamole that would go really well with our Mexican Salmon Tacos. Or some delicious Lime and Coriander Rice that would suit our Baked Salmon recipe perfectly.
