I love dinner parties and having all of my friends and family around me enjoying a delicious and tasty meal. My family has always been brought up that catch up's and hangouts always involve food. We take any opportunity to invite the entire family, which is around 30 people, over and have a huge potluck dinner. 


Potluck dinners are my favourite, you get to try so many different foods and people's recipes. However, in a smaller situation they can be overwhelming with how much food there is to eat. In smaller situations with just a few friends over I love putting together a dish where we can still enjoy making our own food and how we like without having a potluck, a 'sharing meal'. 

These fish tacos are the perfect for a smaller dinner party. They are easy to make and the tacos can be prepared before so that you are not rushing around in the kitchen while your guests are enjoying themselves. Being able to put together and make your own taco allows your guests to make their taco how they enjoy it and it creates a bit of fun seeing what combinations others put together. 

Go all out and have a Mexican Fiesta night with margaritas, sombreros and plenty of tacos.
