We love a good fish tacos. I love making them and do so at least twice a month. Sometimes I make them breaded, fried, baked, or I use this recipe the most, my favorite.
I love using thinly sliced Wild Dover Sole fillets. Again, we only eat wild caught fish. There is some prep work so make sure to read this entire post so you can prepare accordingly.
Fresh Fish Tacos Recipe
- Fish and Marinade
- 2-3lbs of Wild Dover Sole Fillets
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
- 1/4 Cup Lime Juice OR Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/4 Cup Chopped Fresh Cilantro
- 2 Tsp Oregano
- 1 Tsp Cumin powder
- 1/4 Tsp Cayenne/Red Pepper
- 1/4 Tsp Chipotle powder
- pinch of salt and pepper
- Pickled Coleslaw
- Chopped or sliced Cabbage
- 1/2 Small Red Onion Thinly sliced
- 1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- Toppings & Accompaniments
- Small Corn or Flour Soft Tortillas
- Mango Salsa
- Avocado Cilantro Dressing
- 1 Chopped Yellow Pepper
- 1 Chopped Medium Cucumber
- 1/4 Cup Chopped Cilantro
- 1 Avocado chopped *if you don’t make the Avocado Cilantro Dressing
Prepare, 2 hours in advance, your FISH & Marinade and your Pickled Coleslaw.
For the Marinade, take all ingredients and add into a large bowl and then individually add each fillet and cover with marinade until all fish are added. Place in your refrigerator for at least 2hrs prior to cooking.For the Pickled Coleslaw, take a gallon zip lock bag and add in your Coleslaw and Onions. Add in your ACV. Close the bag and shake and mix until the slaw and onions are lightly covered. Place in Refrigerator for one hour sideways and then shake and flip the bag and place back in the fridge.
If you choose to make make my Mango Salsa or Avocado Cilantro Dressing recipes, make sure to also make them in advance of cooking your fish.
In a large frying pan, cook your fish on Medium for 2-3 Minutes. This is a very delicate fish so it will fall apart if handled too much while cooking.
There is NO need to add more oil to the pan as it’s been marinating in it. Turn once and cook additional 1 Minute. Move to a serving dish and continue cooking each fillet until all are cooked. You don’t want to over cook your fish.
Now it’s time to Load Up your fish taco and Enjoy.
