South Florida is all about seafood. Especially when it's served crispy inside a soft tortilla shell and paired with a margarita. Here are five spots to get your fish taco fix.

1. Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar

Fort Lauderdale's lively Mex joint offers a stellar tequila selection and impressive eats, including its grilled or blackened mahi mahi stuffed inside a handmade corn tortilla with pickled red onions and cheese.

2. Jefe's Original Soul Shack (pictured)

Price: $2.50 Each

3. LoKal Burgers and Beer
