How to make fish tacos with cilantro lime sauce

The process is super simple.

  1. Make the fish (we use cod, but any white fish will do).
  2. Get your tortillas ready. Use this homemade tortilla recipe or get some from the store.
  3. Make the avocado lime sauce
  4. Shred the cabbage
  5. Put it all together and enjoy!

Step 1: Make your Fish

We used cod for this fish taco recipe, but any white fish will do. Cook it on the stove top with a sprinkling of salt.

Step 2: Get your Tortillas ready

If you’re making your own, make sure they’re ready to go. Homemade tortillas take a while (but are totally worth it if you have the time).

I like to heat up the tortillas before serving to make sure they don’t crumble apart when you pick them up.

Step 3: Make the Avocado Lime Sauce

The sauce is made with avocados, cilantro, lime, salt, and water. Can’t get much simpler than that. Just blend it all up. Here’s the avocado lime sauce recipe if you need it.

Step 4: Shredded Cabbage for some crunch

I think the perfect meals are the ones with lots of different textures and flavors. To add some crunch to these tacos, we added cabbage (you could also use a store-bought greens and cabbage mix to save time).

Step 5: Put your tacos together and enjoy

I like to spread the sauce on the tortillas, then add the fish and cabbage (or cabbage and greens combo). Add your favorite hot sauce and enjoy your dinner! Of course, feel free to drizzle extra sauce over the top of the tacos.

To add even more flavor, I can’t recommend this avocado mango salsa enough. It’s just so good.
