Cod Fish Tacos
These fish tacos have a delicious crisp cabbage and carrot slaw, then drizzled with a lightened up chili-lime sauce. SO good! Me and Karina, my oldest daughter love fish, but my husband Tommy does not... unless I make fish tacos! These healthy fish tacos are my favorite way to get him to eat fish and they are so quick, ready in 30 minutes. For a fun spin on fish tacos, try these
Greek Fish Tacos
For the delicious, creamy sauce, I combined some Greek yogurt with lime juice, a little mayo and
(affil link), my favorite chili-lime seasoning and a must to add to your spice rack (Trader Joes also has a version of this). The fish is also seasoned with Tajin and cumin, so good! Use a little water to loosen it to make it easy to drizzle.
Best fish for fish tacos:
Here I used wild cod fish fillets, but any flaky white fish can be used here. Try snapper or mahi mahi fillets.
How to cook cod for fish tacos
Since there's no breading, I find the fastest and easiest way to cook the cod for fish tacos is in a skillet so you get a little char. You can broil them if you prefer, or cook them on the grill on foil in the summer.
