Alaskan Fish Tacos

February 29, 2012


Fish tacos sound gross.


But that is not at all the case.

They are easily one of our favorite meals. They are fresh. light and filling, and packed with lots of different flavors and textures.


For this delicious dinner, I used Alaskan white fish (such as halibut, or cod). A nice firm, and flakey fish is best for tacos.


The biggest tip when making fish tacos is to pre-marinate the fish. Mix together the following for 4 med. sized pieces of fish.

Fish Taco Marinade

  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 4 crushed cloves of garlic
  • salt and pepper

Let the fish marinate in the mixture for 4-8 hours until it has covered each fillet.

Then preheat your oven to 450*.

Cook fish for 15-18 minutes, depending on the thickness. Cut the fillet to check if fish is fully cooked before removing it from the oven.


On our fish tacos tonight, we had the following toppings:

  • fresh sweet peppers
  • avocado
  • cabbage
  • lettuce
  • fresh cilantro
  • brown rice
  • black beans
  • salsa
  • plain greek yogurt.

They are really a favorite meal at our house! Have you ever tried making them with salmon? Maybe a BBQ style fish taco? Maybe not?
