Mark's Famous Fish Tacos

My family loves my tacos. Every Tuesday is taco night and the most requested taco my famous fish tacos (well, famous in my house anyway). Here's what I do...


  • Your favorite fish (I do salmon, cod, or haddock)
  • Tortillas (small ones)
  • Red onion
  • Brocoli slaw
  • Limes
  • Salt, pepper, cumin, and garlic salt
  • Avocado
  • Spicy jack cheese
  • For the Sauce: sour cream, mayo, hot sauce
  • Cilantro


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425
  2. Lay our some parchment
  3. Place the fish fillets on the parchment
  4. Drizzle some olive oil, sprinkle, salt, pepper, cumin, and garlic salt
  5. Put a dab of butter in the middle of the fish
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or so...check temp of fish to make sure it done.

The Sauce:

  1. Two parts sour cream and one part mayo
  2. Add Garlic salt (tsp), Whole lime juice, and hot sauce (as much or as little as you prefer)
  3. Mix thoroughly
  4. Taste and make sure you love it!

The Tacos:

  1. Wrap the tortillas in foil and bake with the fish
  2. Cube avocado
  3. Dice the red onions
  4. Shred the cheese

Bringing it home:

Personally, I like the brocoli slaw on the bottom. Then I add in this order:

  1. Red onion
  2. Cheese 
  3. Fish
  4. Avocado
  5. Finish with the sauce on top.

Special tip: make more than you think you are going to need. They will come for seconds, and likely thirds!

Buen Provecho!
