Few dishes capture the essence of warm weather better than fish tacos: light, crispy fish wrapped in a tortilla, slathered in sauces, and topped with crunchy slaw. When ordered alongside a margarita, the ocean feels practically within earshot (although Washingtonians are just hearing the Potomac, unfortunately).
There’s still no shortage of fish tacos for diners to enjoy in the sunshine. The dish originates in Baja California, Mexico. It’s said the idea occurred when Asians came to the peninsula and introduced the concept of fried fish. While fish taco aficionados debate this story, enthusiastic eaters are simply grateful for the brilliant mind who put tempura into a tortilla.

Washingtonians can hit up several locations for the classic battered Baja version. They can also opt for grilled fish, as well as a variety of slaws, sauces, and salsas. Head to one of these 15n eateries for fresh, tasty fish tacos.Read More
