This easy recipe for fish taco features mouthwatering fish filets seasoned to perfection with an amazing lime crema sauce to top it all off. Perfect for a delicious meal any night of the week.


For the Fish:

  • 1.5lbs white fish filets (cod or tilapia are excellent options)
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

For Lime Crema Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbs lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
  • 2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a sheet pan with parchment or foil.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, cayenne and salt.
  3. Pat the filets dry with a paper towel and place on the lined sheet pan. Spoon the mixture over both sides of the filets as best possible.
  4. Bake the fish in oven at 400°F for 15 minutes or internal temperature of 145°F in thickest part of filets.
  5. While fish is baking, make the sauce. Add together the mayonnaise, sour cream, hot sauce, lime juice and salt in a bowl and mix until combined.
  6. When fish is done, remove from oven and let sit for 3 minutes to cool before using a fork to break into bite sized pieces.
  7. Assemble the tacos! Place a handful of shredded cabbage on the tortilla with fish on top. Add a couple of dollops of the lime crema and sprinkle with fresh cilantro or other favorite toppings.
