Marshall Store Fish Tacos

Glittery Tomales Bay, humble North California sun and fish tacos from the Marshall Store is all we want on a Sunday afternoon.

Ok, ok we get it! Nobody can drive up every Sunday up to Tomales Bay to enjoy the tasty fish tacos at Marshall Store, that’s why we are bringing you the recipe straight to your screen. We have been several times up there and while we regularly stop at all other oyster spots along the Tomales Bay, Marshall has been a favorite for awhile now. The menu reads more than just oysters. So it’s great for everyone who is looking for something more substantial. They serve big sandwiches, creamy clam chowder, and fresh seafood platters. And of course, these yummy fish tacos with chili lime slaw & avocado-mint sauce we are re-creating for you, and us.

The tacos are super simple and a great dish to make for brunch and invite friends over.

Get everything set up and everyone can assemble their own tacos. Easy peasy! Now let’s make some tacos.marshall-store-fish-tacos-california-weekend-106
