IBS-Friendly Fish Tacos

IBS-Friendly Fish Tacos

Last updated: February 2022

Who loves taco Tuesdays!? I know I do! I remember growing up eating tacos and my mom always had her special way of making it with her delicious seasonings and cheesy toppings. However, if I even had a bite of one of her delicious tacos now, my IBS would send me to the toilet more times than I would care to count. With that being said, I created my own IBS friendly taco recipe and if you like seafood, you’ll definitely like this dish! It’s quick and easy to make, and if you prepare enough fish, you can stretch it a few days with various sides.

Servings: 4-5
