"We got the best fish tacos in a little fishing village in Mexico. I have tried to recreate them as best as possible"
Serving Size: 1 (157 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"GREAT recipe. I used Tilapia.
PROS: Amazing sauce, very quick and easy, cutting the fish into pieces rather than strips is perfect, overall taste fantastic
CONS: as other reviews have stated only use 1 T. oil and 1 chopped green onion added to the sauce is a Necessity. While adding hot sauce later is good, mixing 1 t. garlic/chili sauce in with the fish before frying is better,
OVERALL: This is definitely my new fish taco recipe. 4 stars for the few needed additions/subtractions but this one is worth making monthly or for friends."
"This was an awesome fish taco recipe! I really liked that it wasn't fried, so many are battered and fried. I made a few changes, but nothing drastic and this came out great! I added a good squeeze of lime juice into the sauce which was heavenly. Loved that the best I think. I used tilapia since that is what I had on hand. I also used shredded lettuce, cheddar cheese, salsa and green onion for toppings since I don't like cabbage. The fish was great and tender and tasted fresh and flavorful. We put everything on a warmed flour tortillas and altogether this was an excellent lenten lunch! Thank you for posting Tish, I can't wait to buy some more fish to make these!!! yuuuummmmmmmy!"
"this was delicious!!
it was super fast and very easy to make! i was at first hesitant of adding the taco seasoning thinking that it would make the fish taste like beef, but it complimented it perfectly!
we used talapia, wheat wraps, lowfat sour cream with 1 teasp of mayo for a healthier meal and it was perfect! will definitely make this over and over again! thanks for sharing this recipe!"
"Such a great meal! It is my husband's (who doesn't like fish)favorite meal! I used snapper the first couple times but I am using tilapia tonight. Also, I found an adobo chile sauce on another recipe that I use for dipping. This recipe rocks!!"
"Excellent. I did add one chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce...which I think was key. Also, ONE Tbsp of oil was plenty, ...and I used fat free sour cream, and low fat mayo. Topped with tomato and cabbage as suggested...and added diced avacado. All served up on lightly toasted low carb flour tortilla. I'll be making these again! Yum!"
"Made these last night for dinner. We really enjoyed them. This is a keeper!! I will definately make these again. Thanks for the awesome recipe :)"
"Awesome recipe. I used 1 T coconut oil, 1 T olive oil & 1 tsp. minced garlic for sautéing. I did not have lemon at home so I used malted vinegar, taco seasoning sprinkled my fish and let it sit for 5 minutes, Then I sauté in hot oil it didn't take more then 5-7 minute to sauté and I kept fish in strips rather then cut it up into pieces and it was delish....<br/><br/>I will definitely make this again and again . Gee The whole meal took less then 20 minute to prepare."
"This is the easiest fish taco recipe I have ever made. I love that I can just chop up the fish (I used tilapia) and cook it in the skillet. The dressing is AMAZING. It has become my go to recipe for cole slaw dressing now . . . with the addition of some chipotle seasoning. My kids ate two huge tacos each. As a matter of fact, I made it for dinner and the next day at lunch they requested I make it again!"
"Very good! I used Bonefish Grill Bang Bang sauce instead of this sauce recipe. We like heat. We just used regular lettuce instead of the cabbage. Delish!"
"We love these! So healthy too."
"Awesome! I loved it. I just may have a new fish taco recipe. As others suggested, I cut back the vegetable oil to 1 Tbs. Everything turned out great."
"Awesome and so easy!!"
"This is awesome. My three kids (ages 5, 8, & 9) asked for thirds! We are definitely making this again. Thanks!"
"I don't normally eat fish. I made these because my husband loves fish tacos and we haven't been to Rubio's in ages for him to enjoy them. These were fantastic! We each ate 6 because they were so tasty! (I'd bought literally the TINIEST corn tortillas ever - 3 bites each). Did I mention I don't normally enjoy fish? Yeah. These were so good.<br/><br/>I used Mahi Mahi. Meant to use less oil as other reviews suggested but forgot - definitely recommend doing that because I had a pool of oil under my fish that I had to drain off. Otherwise stuck to the recipe as is."
"love this recipe!!! i hade some green onions to the sause but thats just because i love green onions thanks for this recipe"
"These were so good! I breaded tilapia fillets with panko and fried them and made my own tortillas. They were so much better than store bought. Well worth the extra effort! I loved the sauce in this recipe. We'll definitely be making these again!"
"Made the recipe with a little less oil than stated, and greatly enjoyed it. I've actually made it twice now and made a fish-taco lover out of my husband. :) The quantity of sauce it makes is a little on the large side, but better to have more than not enough. Use a good quality, thick cod or tilapia filet if you can. The little frozen, cheap filets are not sturdy enough to stir around without breaking/flaking apart."
"Finally found a great recipe for Fish tacos. Kids, hubby just devoured it. The sauce is good and can be used itself to go with fried fish appetizers. I adjusted the spice to a little mild for kids and higher for hubby to customize to their taste buds..will be making a lot of these. Thanks for the recipe."
"Very easy to throw together and they came out great. I used both tilapia and cod, and like others added green onion to the sauce and reduced the oil. The cilantro adds a nice flavor to the sauce, and shredded cabbage complements the seasoned fish well. Thanks for the recipe!! We will definitely make these again."
