One thing I love about tacos is that they can be made with just about anything and taste good no matter what! These blackened fish tacos are so refreshing & flavorful with the cabbage slaw and cilantro lime sauce. Add to it or leave as is, it’s the perfect taco!


Blackened Fish:

  • ⅕ 1bs Turbot Fish Fillet (or fish of your choice)

  1. In a small bowl, add in all the spices and herb ingredients for the fish rub. Mix to combine well. Add the mixture evenly over both sides of the fish.
  2. In a blender or food processor, add in all the ingredients for the cilantro lime sauce and blend well until it is the consistency you would like for the sauce.
  3. Add in all the cabbage slaw ingredients to a medium sized bowl and stir to combine. Let sit.
  4. Heat oil in a medium sized skillet over medium high heat and add in the fish fillet. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side until cooked and blackened on the outside.
