Friday Fish Tacos

I’m posting Friday Fish Tacos today so you can make them tomorrow! Keeping with the whole Fish Friday theme I thought it would be better for you to have the recipe a day in advanced so you could have time to prepare it.

These babies were fit for a fish lovin king! Or even a not so fish lovin king. Really these are good for anyone who loves a good taco. I used cod which is super light and fluffy and NOT fish tasting at all. Once the taco seasoning is added to the mix you really don’t know your devouring eating a piece of fish. Which is really helpful when trying to get your picky kids/husband to eat a light non-meat dinner =)
Just going through the pictures to post this my mouth started watering and my stomach started grumbling. I got up and ate a peach but it didn’t exactly satisfy the intensity of the craving for these tacos. They were that good and are definitely worthy of a repeat soon. Eat your tacos with a Margarita or Strawberry Basil Martini to wash it down and you’ll think you’re on a beach somewhere like Mexico or Hawaii. That is until reality comes back as you’re doing the dishes watching the icy wet snow fall. Blah

Serves 1-2

Ingredients:

2-4 Filets of Cod (Or any whitefish you prefer- I only used 2 filets and it was just enough for 2 tacos each)

2 Tbsp. Homemade Taco Seasoning or that store bought stuff. (If using more than 2 filets I think 2 Tbsp will still be enough there was quite a bit of flavor in these)

2 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon juice

1 Tbsp. Butter

1 tsp. Extra Virg. Olive Oil (just a quick drizzle added to the butter)

4 Low-fat Taco Shells/Tortillas

Extras: Lettuce, tomato, cheese, avocado, sour cream, salsa, taco sauce etc…

How To:

In a large High-sided skillet add butter, lemon juice and oil.

Spread it out covering the skillet.

Add fish filets.

Allow to cook about a minute

Add 1st Tbsp. taco season, covering both filets.

Flip and Add the 2nd Tbsp. of taco seasoning covering the other side.

Allow to cook through and eventually breaking the fish up into small pieces as it cooks.

Once fish is cooked through, seasoned thoroughly and light and fluffy add it to the taco shell.

Taco it up with all your favorite taco toppings

ENJOY!!!!

  1. I do like this method of preparation rather than the deep fried, the fish retains more flavor this way. This is a delicious reminder that I need to make some of these! Your pictures are making me hungry!

    I love fish tacos. My family in the Midwest looks at me like I’m crazy when I talk about them. Hey, Mexico has a huge amount of coastline!

  3. Those look great! I love fish tacos ~ always remind me of Mexico and San Diego :-)

    Wow! These look yummy! I wonder if my picky eater will like them? Too bad for him, I think I’ll try them anyway. :)

    I am really regretting now reading your blog this early in the morning after skipping breakfast. I am now tempted to gnaw on my desk until I can get a free moment to go get something! lol

    I like the things you are showing here and definitely will be trying out several of these recipes!

    Seems delicious! Can imagine the scrumminess of avocados, citrusy flavours, lettuce, and fish all together in a wrap.

    Your recipe would also work really well if you were to lightly steam or grill the fish to the point where it flakes easily and isn’t at all chewy, and then add the seasoning, herbs, and spices to the flaked fish. That way you avoid frying to make it even more super healthy so no-one can have any bones to pick with, excuse the bad pun! ;)

    I will definitely need to turn this into a salad or a flatbread! I’ll let you know when I do : )

    Great pictures as always!
