Fried Fish Taco with Chipotle Aioli Sauce

Not only was this my first attempt at making a fish taco but also my first time eating one. Not sure I will ever want another traditional beef taco ever again.

I watched a food show where they were showing some restaurants best dishes. Fish Tacos caught my attention. While they didn't give you the ingredients I got a pretty good idea of what went into the taco. They grilled their fish and I wanted a little crunch in mine. I tried my hand at it and my taco was a big hit!

Hope you enjoy!
