Quick Fish Tacos
Fish is an important part of any healthy eating pattern, but especially for folks with diabetes. That’s because omega-3s have been linked to lower risks of heart disease and death from heart disease.1
Even adding 1 serving of fish per week to your routine can make a difference. These tacos are quick and easy. And, like any tacos, you can add extras (like green onions and tomatoes) to fit your preferences. But as is, it’s pretty delicious. For a twist, toast the tortillas and turn this dish into “quick fish tostadas!”
