Fish Tacos

These fish tacos are sooo good! Since Mexican food is a staple at our house, it’s nice to switch up the usual black or refried beans with some meat (and by meat, I mean fish!). The best part of these tacos was coming home after a long day at work expecting to start cooking and finding that my husband already had everything made–I guess I’ll keep him around for awhile. ;)

Fish Tacos Recipe
Makes 4 tacos

Print recipe!


4 corn tortillas
1/2 pound fresh cod
1/4 red onion, chopped
2 cups green cabbage
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 trader joe’s guacamole kit (or make you’re own!)
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
flour, for breading
canola oil, for frying
Hot sauce


In a medium bowl, combine mayo, cabbage, red onion, and salt and pepper to make coleslaw. Mix until combined, cover, and refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes.

Over medium heat, place oil in frying pan. While the oil heats up, coat fish with flour then fry in pan until browned, about 3 minutes on each side. Break fish into smaller pieces with spatula.

In a small bowl, add guacamole ingredients and combine.

Toast tortillas directly on the gas burner (or in the pan if you don’t have gas) until slightly crispy.

Assemble tacos: spread guacamole over each tortilla (helps fish stick), add fish, coleslaw and enjoy!

Fish Tacos

Oh, and the second best part of these tacos–homemade margaritas! I was craving pina coladas, but these definitely hit the spot for now. Don’t worry, I’ll post the margarita recipe soon!

  1. Photos are awesome! You should try using fish like cod, for example whiting, coley or pollack. Very very similar to cod, but much cheaper – especially in the case of coley which is sometimes half the price.

    • Thanks for the tip! I often buy cod because it’s something I can buy locally and at this market, I think it was only $10/lb with isn’t bad. I’ll be on the lookout for the other kinds you mentioned as well!
