Baja Fish Tacos

Updated: May 28, 2023

Servings: 4 (2 tacos each) Prep time: 10 min Cooking time: 15 min


  • 4 cod fillets (8 oz raw)

  • 4 cups shredded coleslaw mix (or shredded red cabbage)

  • 8 small corn tortillas (6")

  • 1 cup guacamole

  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (~2 limes)

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp honey

  • 1/2 tsp chili powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 2 limes for extra wedges (optional)


1. In a small bowl, whisk together cilantro, lime juice, oil, honey, chili powder, salt, cumin, and pepper to make the marinade.

2. In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 of the marinade and the cod.

3. In a second bowl, combine the remaining marinade and coleslaw mix. Let both sit for 10 minutes.

4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat on the stove. After the fish is done marinating, transfer it to the skillet and cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side until fish is just opaque and charred. Break up in large chunks.

5. Spread tortillas with about 2 Tbsp guacamole each. Top with shredded fish and slaw. Serve with an extra lime wedge if desired.

  • If using frozen fish be sure to thaw first.

  • Any flaky white fish can be used here in place of cod. Try snapper or mahi mahi fillets.

  • For extra flavor, mix Greek yogurt with chili-lime seasoning and drizzle over tacos.
