The weather may be slightly gloomy with the grey cloudy cover but this easy recipe for Fish Tacos with Pico De Gallo-Black Bean Sauce, courtesy of Robin Miller from the Food Network, is sure to put some spice into your week. To make the dish even better, pair it with one of Carson's slim cocktails such as the Slim Sippin' Tequila Sunrise. Recipe below:


    6 oz. cooked fish (any white flaky fish such as Baked Cod, Fluke, or Stripped Bass)

    4 flour tortillas or hard taco shells

    1/2 cup pico de gallo

    1 can black beans, drained

    1/4 cup sour cream

    1/2 tsp ground cumin

    Mixed stir fried vegetables (recipe below)

    Lime Wedges

    1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced

    1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced

    1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed and spears cut into 2-inch pieces
