Smokey Paprika Fish Tacos with an Apple Slaw

It’s time to change for the New Year and make better for you healthy meal choices. I am working with McCormick this year and we are turning over the New Year with a New You!   The start to this year was different for me because I didn’t have to make a goal of losing weight!  Last year I finally lost all of my extra baby weight and achieved my goal of losing over 40 pounds.  I have learned that making healthy choices should become a part of my lifestyle.  It is time to stop the fad diets and start making small everyday choices to improve my health.  It can be just as simple as making one healthy swap with your meal and adding amazing spices to the dish that you are creating.  McCormick spices are my go-to for creating a bold flavorful meal.   You don’t have to compromise on taste while creating a healthier dish for you or your family.   McCormick has designed all their seasonings to be light and flavorful so you can take your meal to the next level.

I knew I wanted to continue to eat healthy and choose better meals this following year.  Teaming up with McCormick and using their amazing line of quality spices, has enhanced my meals and brought more of a “WOW” factor to every bite.  The best part is my family can enjoy the meals along with me.

Fish Tacos are one of our favorite meals to make. I have learned to LOVE fish and these are a party in your mouth. This meal is made incredible by only having to use a blend of spices but the smoky paprika becomes the start of the dish.  My family is already requesting these on a weekly basis and I couldn’t agree more!

  1. Made a vegetarian version of these for dinner tonight – subbed in roasted cauliflower for the fish but made no other changes. They were so good! Will definitely become one of our regular menu items. Thanks!
