Tacos are a great way to involve your children in preparing their own meal, and delicious golden fish fillets make a wonderfully tasty alternative to a meat sauce. Place the filling ingredients in different bowls and allow your child to make her own tacos. It’s the best way to learn the art of not overfilling!
