What type of fish is best for fish tacos?

Any type of white mild fish is good for fish tacos. This could include mahi mahi, grouper, halibut, snapper, cod, tilapia, and more!

Fish tacos toppings

There are several different types of toppings you can use for your fish tacos. Here are some examples:

  • Green Chili Sauce
  • Salsa
  • Lime juice
  • Guacamole
  • Avocado
  • Slaw mix
  • Cilantro
  • Or add your own! If you need a sauce, try my Paleo Avocado Salad Dressing – the flavors go amazingly well with this flavor profile and the dressing is thick enough to work as a taco sauce here.

How to make baked fish tacos?

First gather your ingredients:

  • 1 lb. white fish (Tilapia, Halibut works well)
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp Old bay seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt

Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking pan with aluminum foil. Place your fish fillets on the tin foil.

Combine cumin, chili powder, Old Bay and garlic salt in a small bowl and mix. Sprinkle the spice mix evenly over the top of the fish.

Cook fish for 10-15 minutes — you will know it is done when it becomes an opaque white and flakes easily with a fork.

Assemble your tacos! Use any combination of your favorite ingredients mixed with gently flaked pieces of fish. If you’re serving a large group, try assembling a “taco bar” with lots of options for toppings that your guests can assemble themselves
