Quick and Easy Fast Fish Tacos Recipe

Must Try

What could be better than quick and easy Fast Fish Tacos? Here’s a 5 ingredient, 15 minute fish tacos recipe you’re going to love.

Fast Fish Tacos

In Southern California, fish tacos are pretty much daily fare. You’ll find them in all kinds of restaurants prepared in a variety of ways. This is a fresh, healthy and simple way to prepare fish tacos. I like mine with a 6th ingredient added (avocado) and sometimes a squeeze of lime too. This recipe is gluten free adaptable- please see tips below the recipe.

🛒 Ingredient Notes:

tilapia fillets (can also use cod or haddock)

olive oil, salt and pepper

sour cream (regular or light)

fresh salsa (look for a fresh tub in the deli section, usually)

tortillas (I prefer corn, but you can use flour if you prefer)

shredded cabbage

optional garnishes (cheese, cilantro, lime, avocado, etc)

✏️ How to make Fast Fish Tacos

*The full, printable recipe is at the end of this post.

Heat the broiler, with rack in highest position.

Place the fish on a rimmed baking sheet; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil until the fish is lightly browned on top, 5 to 10 minutes, until the flesh is opaque throughout.

Meanwhile in a small bowl, mix the sour cream with 2 tablespoons of salsa.

Divide the fish evenly among the tortillas and top with shredded cabbage, sour cream and fresh salsa.

➡️ Tips and Substitutions:

Plain yogurt may be used in place of the sour cream, if desired.

Using fresh salsa is important..The chunks of tomato and onion are mixed with with lime juice and cilantro, and these flavors are a wonderful, easy addition to the tacos.

Shredded lettuce may be used in place of the cabbage, if desired.

If preparing this recipe as GLUTEN FREE– just be sure to use corn tortillas that are known to be gluten free.

✔️ Make Ahead Tips

You can broil the fish ahead of time, and keep it refrigerated until ready to serve. Then you can just heat it up again for the tacos.

❤️ What I Love About This Recipe:

It’s a super fast way to make some fish tacos!

I love that this is a lighter fish taco than the Baja-style, deep fried fish tacos.

There are very few ingredients needed to make this recipe.
