Fish Tacos

Thank you so much for the requested dish!! I am always looking for new ideas, and sadly fish tacos are not in my normal routine, though I think with this recipe they have found a new home. The fish taco recipe was adapted from Great Food Fast. Give these guys a try and be sure to keep the suggestions coming!


Fish Tacos


  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 ½ cups shredded cabbage
  • ½ jalapeno, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound firm white fish, cut into 16 cubes
  • 8 flour tortillas (6-inch)
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped

In a large bowl, combine sour cream, lemon zest and juice; season with salt and pepper. Transfer half the mixture to a small bowl and set aside for serving. Toss the cabbage and jalapeno with the remaining sour cream mixture. Season again with salt and pepper.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat; swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. Season the fish on both sides with salt and pepper. In two batches, cook the fish until golden brown on all sides, about 5-6 minutes.

Meanwhile warm the tortillas – either in the microwave or oven, or if you are lucky enough over a gas burner (try not to let them catch on fire).

To assemble your taco: fill the tortilla with a bit of slaw, then fish and then top with the remaining sauce. We served ours with a dollop of guacamole as well.

Yields 8 tacos, 2 tacos per person.



  • 1 ripe avocado, seeded
  • ½ jalapeno, minced
  • zest and juice of ½ lime
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped

In a medium bowl combine shallot, garlic, tomato, jalapeno and avocado (without skin and seed). Mash the ingredients together until well combined – you can use what ever you have around so a fork/spoon/spatula. Anything.

Add in lime zest and juice and cilantro; stir well to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Yields ½ cup guacamole or enough to serve 1 tablespoon per taco.
