This is our go-to recipe for family get togethers and company because it comes together quickly and it always gets rave reviews. These fish tacos are so flavorful and satisfying but you will feel good and light at the end of the meal.

This recipe is party sized and can be scaled down to feed a smaller crowd. It was developed by my brother-in-law, Slavik and it has been adopted by pretty much everyone in our family. I have had so many requests to publish the recipe so here it is! It’s an easy, excellent fish tacos recipe. Thank you Slavik for sharing your awesome fish tacos with us. I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to ever get tired of this recipe. P.S. They just happen to be gluten free fish tacos! 

Seriously though, be generous with that fish taco sauce! The sauce recipe was adapted from Kaylee on All Recipes. We simply doubled it because there never seems to be enough of the sauce ;).

Ingredients for Fish Tacos:

We used tilapia but you are welcome to use any white fish. Salmon or shrimp would be amazing as well!

Fish Taco Toppings:

*Cotija cheese is a Mexican cheese that crumbles when you grate it; similar to feta but much milder in flavor and not nearly as salty. It is inexpensive and found in the refrigerated cheese section of the grocery store.

Ingredients for Best Fish Taco Sauce:

For the fish taco sauce, all you need is sour cream, mayo, lime juice, garlic powder and sriracha. The sriracha gives it a little kick of spice so you can add more or less based on your preference. This taco sauce is essentially a lime crema – the perfect blend of tanginess and heat (print the recipe below).

How to Make Fish Tacos:

1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or silicone liner. In a small dish, stir together seasonings: 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper and evenly sprinkle the seasoning mix over both sides of tilapia.

2. Lightly drizzle fish with olive oil and top each piece with a dot of butter. Baked at 375˚F for 20-25 min. If you want it to get a little browned around the edges, you can broil for 3-5 minutes at the end if desired.

3. Combine all the Taco sauce ingredients: 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/3 cup Mayo, 2 Tbsp lime juice (from 1 medium lime), 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp Sriracha sauce, or to taste  in a medium bowl or a large measuring cup and whisk together until well blended. It’s really fun and feels like dining out to serve the sauce in a squeeze bottle like this one.

4. To serve the tacos, toast quickly toast the corn tortillas on a large dry skillet or griddle over medium/high heat.

5. To assemble: start with the fish then add remaining ingredients finishing off with a generous sprinkle of cotija cheese and finally that awesome taco sauce! Serve with a fresh lime wedge to squeeze extra lime juice over tacos.

    These fish tacos are frequently requested in our house. We make it so often I reused an empty spice jar and filled it with the fish spices so it’s always handy and easy to sprinkle evenly on the fish. The kicker is the taco sauce — so good! The recipe doesn’t say what to do with the cabbage, I shred it and mix in some of the taco sauce to make a cabbage slaw. It’s amazing!

      Hi Brian, if you overload the tray with fish and the air doesn’t have room to circulate, it can potentially steam cook. Also, make sure they are fully thawed before baking and that your oven is fully preheated. I hope that helps for next time.

    We ended up only using the seasoning for the fish and salsa and gauc we already had. For the fish we used tilapia and for the two of us, it was about a 9 oz fillet. We used a toaster oven and it cooked to 145F in about 15mins. It came out great and tasty! We’ll have to try the sauce next time. Thanks!

    You might consider this sacrilege, but we like to keep the sauce and fixings handy in the fridge so that we can pop some fish sticks in the air fryer at lunch time and have fish tacos for lunch all week. Hot, crispy fish sticks are great in fish tacos! Also, we prefer flour tacos and quick pickled red onions.

    Tried the fish tacos and all of the other comments were correct. This was amazing, fast and easy to make. I added sweet chili sauce instead if sirrachi as that is what I had in the fridge. Worked well and will continue with this I made mistake of not buying small corn tortillas as I had large ones and hard taco shells on hand. Next I will buy the small tortillas. The hard were ok but small soft would have been better. Another Natasha recipe in my rotation

      Hi Lee Ann. It’s not feta and it’s not Parmesan. Cotija is an aged Mexican cheese made from cow’s milk Which can be found with the other cheeses in your local grocery store.

        Lee Ann was asking if the consistency of the cotija cheese is similar to crumbly feta or more like Parmesan. She realizes that the cheese is cotija. The stores where she is may have the cotija in both consistencies. I find it, where I live, that it’s consistency is more like crumbly feta.

    Recently discovered Fish Tacos, and decided to try at home. The sauce is amazing, and for my taste, I will go a little easier on the spices. I used sole, and cooked some in my counter top oven and some I ended up frying. Both were good. I added avacado, and created a wrap. I think I will try it “deconstructed”. Great recipe, Thank You

    Wow! These fish tacos are delicious and easy! The sauce is the perfect touch along with the fresh grated cotija cheese and a squeeze of fresh lime. I made a few small changes that wouldn’t have a large effect on the recipe. I made this recipe with Cod, wrapped it in foil and cooked it on the grill to avoid “fishing” up the house. I used seafood magic seasoning because it’s what I had on hand and I used yellow corn tortillas as I couldn’t find white corn. The sauce is a must and gives this recipe the wow factor! My whole family loved it!

    These were fantastic! I made the tacos using pollock, and a couple days later, I used this recipe to make shrimp bowls. I used one pound of frozen uncooked shrimp with the suggested seasonings and baked for 15 minutes at 350. I made white rice seasoned with lime juice and cilantro. We topped the rice with all the topping ingredients minus the cabbage. The cotija cheese and taco sauce made this extra delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

    This was absolutely delicious!!

    My husband ate the fish as a fish taco as described in your recipe. He loved it.

    I, however, chose to eat it without the taco; just the fish with the sauce and filling on top.

    My conclusion: either way is delicious. This is definitely a 5 star recipe!!

      You will have less than 4 oz per adult if you made the whole recipe (since you are also feeding two children). If you halve the recipe you will be serving less than 2 oz. of fish per adult. Not enough fish for any adult I know unless you are serving the tacos as an appetizer. Just my opinion.

Other than this one minor change, everything is as Natasha and her husband create. This amazing recipe is one of our absolute favorites! We even use the sauce on our lazy weeknight deli sandwich nights. Thanks for sharing Natasha!

    So far I’ve probably made this about 30 times. It’s great for company, because guests can pick and choose what they want in their tacos and variations can be added. I usually add corn and some version of candied sweet potatoes or beans. It’s a solid recipe I rely on! Not too heavy, pretty healthy. Getting ready to serve it again this weekend.

      Hi Victoria! You can check with your local stores to see where they source their Tilapia from. Sometimes it’s listed on the package and they also provide details of how it’s raised.

        I love your recipe. Victoria correctly states Tilapia is a “dirty fish” and should be avoided. However, there are a ton of other great white fish choices

        Costco has frozen wild caught Mahi Mahi that works great for fish tacos. Everyone in our family loves it. No “fishy” taste like some other white fish. Every Friday night is fish taco night at our house!

      Improvise. Use whatever fish you want, no need to ask her. Other people commented they used shrimp, scrod or other.

    The tacos were awesome.. the entire family really liked them; even my little one who really doesn’t like seafood yet.
    Super easy recipe and somewhat inexpensive.

    Every Natasha’s Kitchen recipe I try becomes a new favorite! Seriously, your stuff is SO good and SO easy to make. I love fish tacos any day, anytime and these are fantastic! I would be curious if you have suggestions for more of a coleslaw topping vs raw veggies. I’ve had it both ways and both are great. Anyway, I’m a huge fan and your recipes are my new “go-tos”.

      Hi Max! I’m so glad you love my recipes. The fish and shrimp taco’s are one of my favorites. My thought would be to mix the cabbage with the sauce to create your own slaw but I do have a coleslaw recipe that you could get some ideas from, it’s my creamy coconut coleslaw HERE.= I hope that helps.

    Delicious! As a former San Diegan, I’ve been seeking a recipe to remind me of beachside fish tacos. These fit the bill! Even my 6yo loved them, and I didn’t think she cared much for white fish. So good we’re having them again tonight!

    Alterations: We are dairy-free so we skipped the Cotija cheese and subbed Tofutti Sour Cream with a dash of Trader Joe’s Chino Lime seasoning to brighten the sauce.

    Had some leftover mahi mahi and used this recipe as a guide. Didn’t have any cheese, and didn’t cut an onion. Also, pan fried the fish as small cubes. Despite these deviations from the recipe it turned out very good. The seasoning was great on the fish, the sauce was very flavorful and accented, as opposed to covered, the flavor of the fish. Toppings paired well too. Can’t wait to try this recipe on salmon.

    Tx for the sauce recipe We like it hot, so we tripled the Sriracha and I never seem to have cilantro on hand (I love it, but my family doesn’t 😞 ) so I added about 1/8 top ground coriander seed. Gave it a bit more depth.

      Hi Carol! This sauce keeps well covered in the refrigerator for a few days. It can be used on almost anything! We enjoy it best fresh, but that may work for the fish! I would recommend finding a way to reheat it without overcooking it. Perhaps the oven or a skillet.

    I must be in the minority. I made these as instructed and I thought they were very bland and nothing special. The sauce tasted like nothing and was too thick to drizzle. All I could taste was red onions. A huge waste of my time and ingredients. Sorry!

    I absolutely love this recipe, especially the taco sauce! I did not have sriracha sauce so I substituted Matouk’s Jamaican hot sauce. I also did not have lime so I used lemon juice. Instead of spreading the sauce on top of the toppings I spread it all over the warm tortilla then added everything else on top of the slaw. That way I got a taste of the sauce with every bite. It was the best taco I ever had. Thank you Natasha for sharing your delicious recipe! 🥰
