Quick and easy Baja fish tacos! Flaky white fish seasoned and blackened, then served in flour tortillas with creamy slaw and zesty avocado sauce!


  • 1 pound white fish (I used 4 4-ounce mahi mahi fish fillets), cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning
  • juice of 1 1/2 limes, divided (plus additional lime wedges for serving)
  • 2 cups slaw or thinly sliced cabbage
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 8 taco-sized flour tortillas (6-inch tortillas)
  • Avocado Sauce

  • 1 avocado, pitted and shelled
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • 4 tablespoons mayo or plain greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • milk or water, as needed
  • Instructions

  • In a blender or food processor combine the avocado, lime juice, cilantro, mayo (or greek yogurt), and salt and garlic powder for the sauce and pulse til smooth. Add 1 tablespoon or milk or water at a time until desired consistency is reached. (You just want it to be easily spreadable and smooth) Set aside.
  • Toss slaw or cabbage with 1/4 cup mayo and juice from 1/2 of a lime. Set aside.
  • Grease a skillet and preheat over medium heat. Add fish pieces. Drizzle juice from 1 lime over fish, then sprinkle with taco seasoning and saute over medium heat 6-8 minutes until outside is browned and fish is tender.
  • Assemble tacos by dividing slaw, fish, and avocado sauce between tortillas. Serve with additional cilantro and lime wedges.
