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.

    Loved it!!

    I added fresh garlic to the sauce cause I love tons of garlic and a few other spices to the fish but loved how it’s put together and the cabbage idea. It was perfect (coming from a person who’s not fond of fish 🐠!!!!)

    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! 🥰

    The sauce is what makes both the fish tacos and the shrimp tacos stand out. We like this sauce so much I have used it on sandwiches in place of mayonnaise Depending on how spicy you make it, it really kicks up the flavor in the sandwiches a LOT. Lasts about a week in our house

      Hi Jason, I usually make my sauce fresh when I prepare the tacos. I would say up to 1 week but you’ll also want to take into consideration the expiration dates on the ingredients you are using.

    Really really good and I love the sauce I did exactly what you said except I added finally dice cilantro to it and just to kick it up I put a little slap your mama in it. It was perfect I already had some tilapia that I was going to do something with and some fresh made tortillas.

    Delicious! I would leave out the cayenne in the seasonings maybe replace with paprika and chili powder as my preschoolers thought it was too spicy. we made a large batch of fish and shrimp and the ENTIRE plate was demolished. I mixed the cabbage, avocado, tomato, onion, cilantro with some of the crema and made a sort of salsa-coleslaw. So So Good!!

    Tried ’em last night with the grandkids. Excellent! I had them make everything; We used cod. After everything was prepped, we got them in a “production line”; One helped with heating the tortillas, the next put the fish on the tortilla and plated them on pre-heated plates (we also used shrimp!), then the next put on cabbage, tomatoes, avocados, red onions, and then the cotija cheese (wow! what flavor BTW), then I put the taco sauce on (another major hit, BTW) and put a nice scoop of Spanish rice and a lime garnish on the plates. Everyone got two fish, and one shrimp taco. Perfect! Plates were brought to the table, and everyone then sat down and we all got to eat together. Everybody loved it. We had New York style cheesecake for dessert, with homemade blueberry sauce. Limeade for drinks, Caribbean music in the background (Thanks Alexa), and we had another meal to add to our rotation!

    I just made these yesterday, and everyone LOVED them! There was only a little sauce left (which I will be enjoying with my lunch today) – everything else was gone! 🙂 I slightly reduced the amount of cayenne pepper for the tilapia seasoning, but I don’t even think my daughter noticed, so I will add the full amount next time. I love how easy this recipe is and how delicious these tacos were!
    I did pickle some red onion and red cabbage in separate jars, and added those as topping options, too.

    You have to read and re-read the recipe and instructions because you won’t know what temp and when to heat your oven (for just one example) – usually recipes begin by telling you “preheat your oven to X” this has you getting everything together without any preparation instructions
