Recipe: Fish Tacos - I love fish tacos.

November 4, 2014

Fish tacos are probably one of my favorite things to eat. Back in Omaha, I knew all the best places and have no fear, I'm figuring out where the best tacos are in Denver. They're just so good and fresh and even if they're not healthy, they taste it. Don't even get me started on the slaw that goes on tacos, oh my oh my, I could eat just the slaw! I hope you guys can share in my love for tacos, if not, you're just eating the wrong ones :) Here ya go, paleo tacos AND slaw, you're welcome.

  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar (I added more based on taste when it was done)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, minced
  • 1-2 pounds white fish, I used cod
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 head Bibb lettuce
How to make: 
  1. For the slaw; mix it all together and taste it. Try not to eat it all right away. Add more vinegar/salt/pepper for your tasting. 
  2. For the fish, combine the olive oil, ancho cili powder, lime juice, cumin and jalapeño in a large bowl. 
  3. Toss the fish in the marinade and let it sit for 15 minutes. 
  4. Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat, and add the fish, cooking about 5 minutes until the fish is done. 
  5. Break the fish into small pieces and serve with the slaw on top of the bibb lettuce. 
  6. Enjoy!! 
for tacos, I prefer bibb lettuce, it's much easier than romaine
look at all that delicious fish! I made this for 7 people, so i doubled everything. 
remember what I said, don't eat it all before you make the tacos. 
the tacos. mmhmm.
we served ours with some spicy sweet potato coins! enjoy!
