Fish Tacos with Yogurt Sauce

It’s strange to me that when I think back to high school and most of college, I could care less about cooking. I just didn’t do it. Though I’ve been exposed to home cooking my entire life, from the family dinners every weeknight growing up (that I so took for granted), to holidays at my Grandma’s house where she spent (and still spends) most of the day cooking away for Christmas dinner or Easter brunch. I know that’s where I get my appreciation for good home cooked meals, it just took a bit of maturity to really get it. 

Most days I run my dinner plan by my mom first to see what she thinks, or what side dish would go well with a certain dish. Just like yesterday when I said “I want to make fish tacos….what was that yogurt sauce you used to make?” Here it is!

Fish Tacos


1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 TBS mayonnaise
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Juice of one lime
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
