Fish Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

Fish tacos are one of my favorite dishes to order out.  In fact, I regularly order them from Shrimp & Co.  They are just down the street from our market.  It’s a really cute Key West style building next to the Family Dollar.  If you are ever looking for fresh seafood, this is your spot.  But I digress, as much as I enjoy them, I had yet to make them at home.  Gasp.  I know. They are not that difficult to make and they are delicious.  Even my skeptical husband was impressed.  Score.

I improvised on the fish tacos topping.  Normally, they are served with cabbage.  Cabbage is not something we eat a lot of at home, so I substituted with thinly sliced spinach.  And for more flare, I topped it with my homemade pineapple salsa. It truly was delectable.  Here’s what you’ll need:

For a little more flavor/heat, I added Flavors of Florida Key West and Clearwater Beach to my tacos.  While the Clearwater Beach hot sauce is usually my favorite, I thought the Key West hot sauce was better for this dish.  The Key West sauce is a medium spicy jalapeno and key lime hot sauce.  The Clearwater Beach hot sauce is definitively spicier.  It’s made with cayenne peppers and lemon juice.  For the girls, I made “mayo ketchup”, but I used vegennaise instead of mayo.  They loved it!
