Fish Tacos Recipe With Easy Sauce

This recipe looks too easy to be tasty. Trust me though, it is. Try it and you won't be disappointed. Be warned though, these fish tacos are messy to eat because of the easy sauce, so I suggest passing out table napkins.

I'm fortunate to live close to a Mexican grocery store which sells fresh locally-made flour tortillas. I’d recommend them if you can find them, but they aren’t necessary. Any flour tortillas from the supermarket will do.

Fish Tacos

Serves 4

1 pound flaky white fish such as cod, snapper or halibut

1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
pinch cayenne pepper


1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste

8, 8" flour tortillas
shredded cabbage
sliced avocado (optional)
hot sauce (optional)
chopped cilantro (optional)

For Marinade: Combine olive oil, chili powder, oregano, cumin and cayenne pepper into a small bowl. Place fish in a shallow pan and cover with marinade. Leave for 20 minutes while preparing other ingredients.

Preheat oven to 420° F.

Remove fish from marinade and discard. Cook in oven until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Flake into small pieces and place in a small bowl.

For Sauce: Combine mayonnaise, sour cream and lime juice.

Wrap tortillas in foil and heat in oven for 5 minutes. Build your own taco by adding fish, sauce, cabbage, salsa and hot sauce plus any other optional ingredients into a flour tortilla.
