What Are The Favorite Toppings For Fish Tacos?

How To Store Fish Tacos?

The best way to store fish tacos is by storing the ingredients separately. For instance, you can store the cooked fish in the refrigerator, which will last for up to 3 days. The same goes with toppings. However, if you've assembled leftover tacos, the juices from the sauces will soak the tortilla. Therefore, take care to consume fish tacos on the day you prepare them.
