Quick N’ Easy Fish Tacos

Grab a sheet pan and your spices! You’ll be serving up THE MOST FLAVORFUL spiced fish tacos with all the best toppings in just over 20 minutes.

Seriously SO TASTY and CRAVEWORTHY, these are much better than restaurant fish tacos (in my humble opinion ☺️)

➡️ Tortillas hold us together:
First up, choose the best tortilla you can get your hands on, that fits within your specific nutritional needs.

Ezekiel, Food for Life, and Siete brands all make varieties that I love! Always read through the ingredients.

They should be simple and self-explanatory.

Often these “healthier” tortillas have a MUCH better taste and texture once heated up a bit.

These Fish Tacos turn out EXCELLENT using any white fish or shrimp you happen to have on hand, so try this recipe using different types of fish to find YOUR favorite.

My personal favorite is halibut, so when I find it on sale, I’ll grab a few filets for fish taco night!

Are you trying to incorporate more fish into your diet?

You’re not alone!

Many people desire to mix up their proteins and get the health benefits many fish and seafood offer….but where to start?!

If you’re not sure whether you like eating fish – but love all their health benefits – white fish may be just the solution for you!

They’re less “fishy” and milder than other fish, which makes them a great place to start!

Each fish has its own nutritional makeup … but they’re all a nutrient-dense source of protein and micronutrients that contain very few calories.

They’re also:
Low in fat
High in protein, B vitamins
Packed with minerals like potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus

🐟Why eat fish?

Research suggests it’s linked with a lower risk of depression, heart disease, and cognitive decline as we get older.

🍲If you can’t buy fresh whitefish from a fishmonger, choose wild-caught, frozen-at-sea.

Frozen at sea means they are frozen soon after being caught, which preserves them at their freshest point.

💛Homemade Mayonnaise

6 servings


2 lbs white fish filets
2 tsps ground cumin
2 tsps smoked paprika
1 tsp ground coriander seed
1 tsp chili powder
sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
1 Tbsp grass-fed butter or ghee, melted
tortillas of choice

1/2 small purple cabbage, finely shredded
2 medium avocados, diced
4 green onions, sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
a handful of fresh cilantro, leaves picked
4 oz Cotija or other crumbly cheese
fresh lime wedges

Creamy Taco Sauce:
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise
2 fresh limes, juice and zest
1 shallot, grated
2 Tbsps hot sauce of choice


Preheat your oven to 425 degrees f. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and assemble your fish filets on the baking sheet.

Gently pat your fish filets dry using a paper towel.
In a small bowl combine all the seasonings together with your oil and melted butter.

Drizzle this mixture equally over your fish and rub it on all sides.

Roast the fish in your preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until cooked through and flaky. Timing will vary depending on the thickness of your fish.

Meanwhile, prepare your toppings for the tacos. Thinly slice the purple cabbage, dice avocado, and thinly slice green onions; Quarter the cherry tomatoes and chop a handful of fresh cilantro.

Add all of your taco sauce ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until really well combined.

Once the fish is almost cooked through, carefully place the tortillas on top to heat up for about 1 minute. Alternatively you can heat up your tortillas in a skillet on the stove.

Assemble your fish tacos starting with a warm tortilla. Add in a generous piece of fish, then fill with the prepared toppings as desired.

Drizzle with your taco sauce and serve immediately.
