Simple Fish Tacos Recipe


Simple fish tacos with sour cream and Chalula

Here is a super simple and totally delicious fish taco recipe that I made for dinner last night.


  • 1 package (3-6 fillets) of flaky white fish (What is a flaky white fish? Check it out here.)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • At least 1 TBSP per piece of fish of taco/fajita seasoning (Ben’s family makes a really delicious blend, someday I’ll figure out the proportions of what’s in it)
  • Lime
  • Corn tortillas

Optional ingredients:

  • Sour cream or chilled coconut cream
  • Hot sauce
  • Sliced grilled onion
  • Pico de gallo
  • Avocado or guacamole
  • Really anything you want to put on tacos. We had limited ingredients yesterday, so the tacos were very basic, but still delicious because of the seasoning.


Combine oil, vinegar, and fajita seasoning in a small bowl and mix together. Lay fish in a shallow dish and drizzle the oil mixture over each piece, making sure both sides are covered. Let marinate for at least 20 minutes.

Heat a frying pan up over medium heat, pouring extra marinade in to cook down. Then add your fish (and extra oil, if needed). Cook for 2-4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Overcooked fish isn’t great, so err on the side of less time, if you’re unsure. You can always toss it back in the pan if it’s not done.


Warm up some tortillas and assemble some tacos! Enjoy!
