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.

    Tried this recipe a week ago and it was absolutely fantastic. So simple and quick to pull together, and the sauce was divine! I used a bit more sriracha since I like it a bit spicier. Am making it again now…. Thank you Natasha (and Slavik) for sharing this recipe, I look forward to trying more recipes from your site!

      Hi Carrie, we purchase it at our local grocery store. I recommend calling ahead to see if they have it in stock. I haven’t tried these substitutions but here is what one of our readers wrote: “Substitute the sriracha for CANNED DICED CHIPOTLES IN ADOBO SAUCE.” I hope that helps.

    Hello Natasha, tried baking a vanilla cake a few hours ago and it sunk and the sides of the cakes seemed to be puffed in; did the second one and the results were the same, what could have gone wrong?

      Hi Sherry, I’d be more than happy to troubleshoot but it looks like you posted this on our Fish Tacos recipe by accident, which recipe of ours were you attempting? Also, if the cake relies on the volume of sugar and eggs then undereating that step may be the culprit.

    Seriously, the best sauce I’ve ever made. And versatile, because I’ve used it on other things as well. My all time fave used to be Remoulade, well this fish taco sauce shares #1 now depending on my mood. The biggest challenge is finding really good tortillas.

    These were just delicious! I couldn’t find a decent avocado yesterday so I used Wegman’s store made guacamole instead. I guess they took all the good avocados for themselves. Wow, will make again!!

    I made this for dinner tonight using halibut and a little chopped cilantro on top of the taco at the end. Success! I cut each halibut filet into four pieces and they fit into small tortillas perfectly. Our son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren are “Staying Safe at Home” with us and everyone loved the fish tacos!

I find it at Vitamin Cottage Natural Grocers here. I think my Safeway might carry it as well. So happy to have found this brand. It has opened up so many recipes to me!! Hope you’re able to find it near you!

    We tried this recipe for Cinco de Mayo and OMG it was amazing! Neither of us are fantastic cooks so most of our recipe attempts are average at best, but these fish tacos kicked a**! Perfect spices for the fish (we used cod), and the sauce made everything pop. We both looked at each other and said “I’d pay to eat these in a restaurant” lol.
    For toppings I made guac and pico, and we used extra old cheddar we already had in the fridge. He added pickled red cabbage and a little coleslaw.

    Thank you! Will be looking through your others recipes too!
