The Best Fish Taco Recipe…Ever!

April 25, 2017

Cinco De Mayo is next Friday and if you know anything about me then you know that Mexican food is my number 1 love. Jamie and I go for Mexican at least 3 times a month and make Mexican-inspired food at home on a regular basis, so as you can imagine, Cinco De Mayo is my idea of the perfect day. I’ve made the fish tacos that I’m sharing here today a million times at home and let me tell you, they are so darn fresh and flavourful! I’m shocked that I haven’t gotten around to sharing this recipe yet but it’s probably because I can’t stop myself from eating the tacos before I’ve had the chance to take photos of them. I promise you, if you like fish tacos then you will LOVE these. In my opinion, this is the best fish taco recipe ever!

  3. Juice + zest of 1 large lime or 2 small limes

  3. Grape tomatoes, sliced
  4. Mangos, chopped
  5. Jalapeños, sliced
  6. Red onions, chopped
  7. cotija or feta cheese
Sour Cream Crema
  1. 3 tbsp sour cream
  2. 2 tbsp mayonaise
  3. Zest + juice of 1 small lime
  4. 1/4 tsp cayenne
  5. salt + pepper to taste
For the Fish
  1. Place fish, lime juice, zest, salt and pepper into a ziplock bag, close and marinate for at least 20 minutes
  2. Cook fish in pan over medium heat, it will easily pull apart when it is fully cooked through.

  2. Serve with lime
