These delicious fish tacos are a team favorite here at Guiding Stars. They’re easy to make and a wonderful, light summer’s meal.

Tip: Adobe peppers in chipotle sauce can usually be found, canned, in the Mexican food section of your local grocery store. If you’re not sure what counts as a flaky white fish, haddock and cod are great options, or ask your fishmonger.

I brought my Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa to Windham High School. We served it with my Garlic-Lime Black Bean and Avocado Spread, an alternative to guacamole. Some people suspected the kids would be hesitant to try the menu, and some certainly were. Others jumped at the opportunity to have something different. They didnʼt know it was healthy. At the end of the day, student participation in the special meal was higher than normal and last I knew, staff meal counts increased almost four-fold.Erin Dow, Expert Chef
