Spicy hake topped with a sweet salsa makes the most delicious fish taco combination. It’s an easy to make dinner that doesn’t take too long to make and only requires 30 minutes of foresight to get your fish marinating. I have a preference towards soft tortillas over the crunchy ones; but you can also leave that out and serve the fish just with salsa. Or do a fish taco salad and serve the fish, salsa and toppings in a bowl with some crushed corn tortilla chips.
