The heat hit and something turned in me. Suddenly, all I want is a fish taco, smothered in fish taco sauce, topped with crispy, fresh toppings. Side car me a beer and I’m feeling allll the summer vibes. ☀
I was shopping at Target this past weekend and I spotted this Tacos and Cervezas shirt.
You get me, Target. ❤
So again this week I was meal planning and I started craving fish tacos. Light and fresh, crunchy and delicious fish tacos! I’ve got three go-to recipes that I circulate in between, one being a recipe I came up with that we’ve all fallen in love with around here, and the others that I’ve Pinned and probably made 20 times in the last year alone! The secret to my quick and easy recipes? Buy a bag of beer-battered fish fillets from your grocery store and save yourself the time and stress of coating and cooking your fish each time.
What’s for dinner this week?
DELICIOUS, EASY Baja Fish Tacos!
1 bag beer-battered fish fillets
8 fajita size flour tortillas
2 cups cole slaw mix
1/2 cup cilantro
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon chipotles in adobo sauce
Avocado, thinly sliced
Bake frozen fish fillets based on package directions.
In a medium sized bowl, combine cole slaw mix, cilantro, lime juice, pineapple juice, and salt. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, honey, and chipotles in adobo sauce.
When fish is baked through, cut into inch long pieces. Lay out tortillas and top with fish, a large helping of your slaw mix, and top with a generous drizzle of your dressing. Lay avocado slices on top and enjoy!
Need more options? Check out two of my very favorite go-to recipes.
Marinated cod cooked lightly in oil, served with a corn and cabbage slaw, topped with a simple mayonnaise based dressing. YUM!
A lighter option with that sweet taste of mango. The avocado-mango slaw is killer and sometimes you just feel better about eating tacos not smothered in a sour cream or mayo topping.
No matter what your fish taco style is, these three recipes are super yummy, will help you sail through those busy summer dinner times, and make you feel a little like you’re somewhere tropical when you’re still stuck at home. 🙂
