Healthy Fish Taco Recipe
Just like my Blackened Fish Tacos, Grilled Fish Tacos with Cabbage Slaw and Baja Fish Tacos, these are made with fresh ingredients and they taste absolutely incredible. To me, that’s all that matters!
With ingredients like this, you can’t go wrong and this goes for all the tacos in The Taco Tuesday Cookbook. Each recipe is made with real food and creates an enjoyable experience to eating a well-balanced diet- with tacos of course! You can watch me make a brand new taco recipe every single week by subscribing to my YouTube channel here.
Some people define a healthy dish in terms of calories, fats, protein, etc. and while that works for some, definitely not for me! I focus more on the quality of ingredients, where they come from and how they make me feel and healthy tacos have me feeling amazing!
How to make Oven Baked Fish Tacos
I thought you’d never ask!
Let’s start with the breading (my favorite part). It consists of Panko breadcrumbs and coconut flakes. This combo tastes and smells incredible and it goes great on fish, shrimp, and chicken.
For the fish, I prefer to use a thicker fillet like Cod, if you can’t find it in the grocery store Tilapia makes a good swap.
To get that light, crispy crust on the fish I prefer baking versus frying, there is less to clean up and it enhances the flavor of the coconut. Make sure to generously coat the fish with the panko and coconut mixture then bake until everything is perfectly golden brown and your kitchen smells heavenly.
How to top Fish Tacos
Think salsa, homemade pico de gallo, fresh mango, pineapple, and lime juice with a creamy dressing or cheese. It’s the ultimate fat, salt, acid, heat combo that makes for SO MUCH YUMMINESS!
